Swiping Headlines

Cross-posting some stuff from other sites.

The Cub Reporter has two tidbits that are interesting. First, the hot rumor of the day is that Ronny Cedeno is getting called up tonight and that Enrique Wilson is being released. Oh, were this to be true.

Confirmed via ESPN.com.

Second, it seems Korey Patterson has accrued enough service time to require him to clear revocable waivers to send him to AAA. No one is suggest that the Cubs will actually do this even though it would be a good move.

Lastly, Desipio's Andy Dolan reminds us that tonight is probably "Farewell To Sweaty Joe Night."

If you are at the game and happen to see Joe down in the pen, buy him a hot dog and slip it over the rail to him. He really helped for two years. It sucks that his arm no longer works, but his time is up.

:::UPDATE #2:::
Check this hilarious exchange between a fan and MLB.com's Carrie Muskrat... uh.... Muskat.

At last check, Ronny Cedeno was hitting .374 at Triple-A Iowa and has been named to the PCL All-Star team. He impressed in his previous MLB stint, and he can field the shortstop position well. Since the Cubs so desperately need improved offensive output from more than two or three players at a time, when can suffering Cubs fans expect to see Cedeno called up and Enrique Wilson given a diminished role? -- Serena S., Schererville, Ind.

Cedeno needs to play every day, so replacing Wilson on the roster isn't a good idea. Wilson is a bench player who has 22 at-bats in 15 games. Cubs manager Dusty Baker likes Neifi Perez's defense and experience, which is why he's in the everyday lineup right now at shortstop. Cedeno will be up to the big leagues some day, and hopefully as a regular.
