Alexi Amarista and Ronny Cedeno have nearly identical stats in Venezuelan Winter League

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

I was checking to see how Alexi Amarista is faring in the Venezuelan Winter League, as I am wont to do now and then, and happened to notice Ronny Cedeno's stat line as well. Their numbers are nearly identical! Seriously, every single category is very close, and their samples sizes aren't that tiny. Here, take a look for yourself:

Those are in alphabetical order, top to bottom, not that it matters much. Amarista has a .001 lead in batting average to go with five more walks, but Cedeno has been hit by a pitch six times to Amarista's one, giving Cedeno a .001 lead in on-base percentage.

What does this mean? Absolutely nothing. I just thought it seemed vaguely interesting, enough so to hammer out three paragraphs about it... Sheesh, Spring Training cannot get here soon enough.
