    Cesar Cedeno was a very good major league player. He was destined to become the greatest Houston Astro ever. I saw him play over a dozen times. I kind of likened him to a Willie Mays or Bobby Bonds type of player. He could steal you 50 bases, hit you 20 or more home runs, score you over 100 runs and knock in over 80 Rbi’s. He was very good not to mention, he was a multiple Gold Glove winner. He was Good!
