Time to replace Nefi.

I have to say April was an amazing month by Nefi Perez and the Cubs couldn't have asked for anything more. In April he hit .368/.403/.559 which earned him his starting spot during the month of April, but just for April. Nefi has never been known for his batting and one great month shouldn't make people forget that Nefi Perez is well Nefi Perez. This month Nefi is batting .175/.233/.300 which is bad even for Nefi and to make matters worse Dusty has him batting 2nd in the order. This is when GM Hendry needs to acquire a SS (maybe Polanco or Cintron) or Dusty should bench Nefi and put in Ronny Cedeno for a few games and see how he does. There is no reason for Cedeno to be on the major league roster if all he is doing is sitting on the bench and collecting dust. If the Cubs are going to stay with Nefi Perez as there SS, hopefully Dusty Baker will get smart and decide to bat him 8th or even 9th in the order.
