UPDATE: Rubin now says the deal is done, pending Cedeno passing a physical exam, and will be worth around $1.1 million for one season.

==========

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York the Mets are talking to free agent infielder Ronny Cedeno and negotiations have reached a “critical” stage.

Ruben Tejada and Daniel Murphy are slated to be the Mets’ starting middle infield and earlier this week the team signed Omar Quintanilla to a minor-league deal to provide more depth, but Cedeno would be a more viable starting alternative after serving as the Pirates’ everyday shortstop for the past two seasons.

Cedeno didn’t hit much, batting just .254 with a .297 on-base percentage and .367 slugging percentage in 313 total games for the Pirates, but the 29-year-old is solid defensively at both shortstop and second base.

New York has been linked to Jack Wilson as a veteran utility man for much of the offseason, but he’d presumably no longer be an option if Cedeno was signed.

      LOL. Hope they remember this stiff won’t be hitting against the Mets pitching staff if they acquire him, remember him torching them for xb’s way too many times, wonder what his all too average average would be if you took away his abs against the Mets. Unfortunately looks like we’re gonna find out.

    Well, I guess it’s better than seeing if Rafael Santana wants to make a comeback. Other than that, I got nothin’.

    If you’re having “Critical” discussions involving Ronny Cedeno, you’ve got troubles.

    How serious could it be? Its Ronny Cendeno!!!!

    This what the Mets are reduced too. Ctitical discussions with Ronnie Freakin Cendeno. The only critical discussion Mets fans want to see is the sale of the team.

      Obviously, the team has to be sold, if the Mets are reduced to this.

    This organization is run by moronic buffoons.Management should have used the $1.5 million to pay down their loans to either MLB or Bank of America.

    Seems the Mets are putting a few finishing touches on what appears to be a run towards a championship….no, not really.

    You guys are looking way too deep into this. They signed him as a BACKUP. We have Murphy who hit well over .300 last year coming back at 2B and a young SS in Tejada who was pretty good at the plate last year. Bay n Wright will be better (they cant be worse) this year. We got Davis coming back who tore it up while he was playing. Our real problem was our bullpen which Alderson addressed for the most part. I love every move he’s made so far..we’re starting to look like a team, not just a bunch of selfish players. Im excited. Mark my words..Miami Marlins will be a mess for years to come with players like Reyes n Zambrano…Baseball is a team game.

      We are not getting too deep into it…..we are being sarcastic, you’ll understand when you are an adult….

    I will f*ck you up bbk1000, you little b*tch..

    • bbk1000 - Jan 10, 2012 at 6:52 PM

      haha…I’ll even give you a thumbs up….
