Next year Cedeno has a $3M option.  The instant knee-jerk reaction is “No Way”, but considering the Rivas/Gomez/Vasquez’s of the world that got $1-2M to stink at SS, wouldn’t it be nice to have a defensively competent MIF backup?

You could start d’Arnaud at SS in 2012, with Cedeno as MIF backup and Wood as a corner IF backup.

Veras has started affecting my blood pressure. Kudos to Hurdle and NH (geez, I’m patting NH on the back again) for the fine job they’ve done keeping a bona fide pitching staff together.

Diaz left the proverbial ducks on the pond again with his pinch hitting. Actually his lack of it. He shows no signs of power and is only a slight upgrade over Jones. I really liked picking him up, but it seems every time NH signs a FA position player, he stinks. It’s a shame there are no ready .330 or so AAA outfielders who could be recalled. NH you gotta do something.

The F.O. has said repeatedly theey’ll make the moves when the time is ready. How ’bout a little roster juggling? Ciriaco should not have sniffed the roster. Playing short handed with Harrison out and D’arnaud available? What harm is there to putting Harrison on the DL and bringing D’arnaud up.

For a team like the Pirates, why not replace a bad SS with another power threat? Even if Wood bats .230, he will do it with power. The Pirates need all the power they can get right now and Wood adds to their less than potent line up.
