YearComment
2005 The Mets' decision to sign Roger Cedeno to a four-year, $18-million deal in December of 2001 was one of the worst contract decisions of recent memory. The fact that even the Mets came to realize this is even more of an indictment against the original decision. When the Mets traded Cedeno to the Cards last April, he had nearly $10 million remaining on his contract. The Mets agreed to pay almost $9 million of that balance. Outside of a fluke season-and-a-half five years ago, Cedeno's been a cipher his entire career.
2003 Some relationships are easy, and you fall into them with the comfort level you have with an old shoe or a favorite chair. Other relationships are high-maintenance, and require endless amounts of catering and nudging and hoping and fearing, and even then, they donít always work out so well. To date, Cedeno has been a major disappointment to just about every team heís ever played for, and in almost every season heís played in. Nothing seems to set him at ease, not money, not fame, and not a less stressful position than center. The one moment when he finally looked like he was worth the attention that people like us have given him over the years was 1999, with a lot of credit going to Rickey Henderson for taking an interest and helping Cedeno focus on what it takes to lead off. Since then, Cedenoís gotten hurt, annoyed his employers, and struggled. It might be worth hauling in Rickey for a shot at redeeming Cedeno and making the relationship work, because as is, heís almost certainly going to have to go back to center with Cliff Floyd moving into left.
2002 It is easy to understand why Randy Smith was so eager to acquire Cedeno; the Tigers have been desperate for a true leadoff hitter since Tony Phillips left after 1994, and Cedenoís speed made him doubly attractive for Comerica Park. The move failed for two reasons: 1) Cedeno walked just 36 times in 523 at-bats (after a previous career average of 68 walks per 523 at-bats); 2) in the last 20 years, only Luis Polonia has done as poor a job of converting speed into defensive range. After feuding with Phil Garner, Cedeno didnít so much as walk onto the field the last three weeks of the season, costing him the AL stolen-base title. He has signed with the Mets, with whom he had his best season in 1999.
2001 It was a terribly disappointing, injury-marred season for Roger Cedeno--just two doubles in 74 games?--but he still managed a .383 OBP, and the ability to get on base is still baseball's seminal skill. Cedeno is best suited for a team that has enough power from non-traditional spots to get away with a corner outfielder swatting only five home runs a year. The Tigers don't really fit that description, but they made a great deal anyway.
2000 In most reports of the three-way trade, his was the fourth name mentioned, after Todd Hundley, Charles Johnson and Armando Benitez. For the first time in his career, he was given a job and left alone, not yanked out the first time he erred. Not that he erred much: a decent center fielder, he dominated NL right fielders defensively and was a base-stealing dynamo.
1999 For a few weeks it looked like his chance had arrived. In the past, Davey Johnson had crafted roles for people like Wally Backman and Lenny Dykstra, and didn't fear young players, so maybe he would rescue Cedeno. Then Devon White was signed. Traded to the Mets, where he's expected to be the fourth outfielder. With Bobby Bonilla and Butch Huskey on the corners, he should play a lot. Cedeno's skills are still there, he just needs a real opportunity.
1998 The Dodgers have made a number of bad choices with Roger. Heís young and very promising as a center fielder and leadoff man. But somehow, the Dodgers have given him service time in the bigs, bringing home closer to arbitration and free agency, while not giving him the playing time he needs to get better. Either leave him in Triple-A to learn more and avoid the waste of the service time, or put him in center field and leave him there.
1997 Future leadoff hitter, and likely to be a pretty fair one. Will have a peak not unlike Butlerís. The Dodger brass apparently has some issues with him. If he can learn to steal bases properly, he can be a championship caliber leadoff hitter.
1996  I really like Cedeno's future. He's a good hitter; his patience and speed make him an ideal leadoff hitter; he can fly in center, and he's ready for the majors at 20. If the Dodgers had really wanted to go with a pitching and defense formula last fall, they would have handed Cedeno centerfield, moved Butler to left, and planted Roberto Kelly's hollow veteran bat on the bench.

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-01-22 19:00:00 (link to chat) Can you suggest any free-agent outfielders the Orioles might go after who promise greater productivity than does Corey Patterson?
(gradyjerome from New Bern, NC)
Well, there's that Bonds fellow...I'm looking at the list and it's not promising. What are your thoughts on Shawn Green? How about Luis Gonzalez? Roger Cedeno? Richard Hidalgo? How about a return visit from Sammy Sosa? I'd take a pass on just about everyone, really. I'd invite some of them to camp, but I wouldn't be going out of my way to sign anyone on that list, except for Bonds who will still be more productive than most. (Jim Baker)
