I agree his defense this past year was solid and he does seem to have the ability to hit, but I think his attitude, hustle (lack there of at times) and overall demeanor seem to be everything the Pirates are NOT. I would love to see them go hard after Lowrie if that could work, if not, take a hot with a Therio or Barmes with Ciriaco as the back-up and see what Mercer looks like in AAA for the future.

Do you see any other team offering Cedeno a starting gig?

Cedeno’s option is similar to Maholm’s, on a smaller scale. It’s not to the point where the price is too expensive. However, there are similar, or better options on the free agent market that can be had for the same price, or less.

more than a move of convenience right now. There are plenty of similar
alternatives for Huntington if he fails to find an upgrade. Cedeno (or Punto,
McDonald, Santiago) could probably be had in late December/January for
something closer to $1m. Might it be worth getting a SS who will have an OBP
over .300 (like Jamey Carroll) and pairing him with Ciriaco?

If they pick up the option they can still trade if a deal comes along.

Cedeno’s option is certainly fair value to bring him back. If he fails in 2012 defensively start Ciriaco and see what he can do and evaluate from there.
