Here is a peek from the article above….

This winter Cedeno walked just once in 138 at-bats. Last season Cedeno earned just 23 walks in 468 at-bats. Cedeno had 502 plate appearances in 2010, he recorded 102 fly outs, but only had two sacrifice flies.

It’s hard to believe those numbers. But look at Cedeno’s career: in 1855 professional plate appearances for the Cubs, Mariners, and Pirates, Ronny Cedeno has walked 85 times, has six sacrifice flies and has seen 6777 pitches (3.65 pitches per plate appearance or HALF of what Clint wants in an at-bat.) Gulp.

From the Trib:

Cool video from Rob Biertempfel on Cedeno including Hurdle talking about the decision Cedeno made ‘all by himself’ to give up number 13…
