    I'd take Jack back in a second. He would be an upgrade in the field and wouldn't do any worse than Cedeno at the plate. I think it would be a win...win!!! Plus maybe Jack could come back and play on a Pirate team that actually has a chance to be competitive and compete late into the season. I'm so excited about this team this year!!! Awesome!!!

    God No. Jack Wilson is DONE. 33 years old, he's not even playing SS either, he's playing 2B and we have a far better option there. The guy can't stay healthy and he's not worth $4 million for half of a season at best worth of below average offensive production and the same for SS since his defense has nose dived with age and injuries. We'd be playing his backup for half of the season or more anyways.

    Jack Wilson is what you would call a bad investment, not an answer, near the end.

    Good guy, good player to have in his prime years but he's past those now.

    The goal is to improve. Jack Wilson doesn't offer an improvement at this stage of his career no matter what .333 BA start he;s off to in 2011.

    Wish him all the best and give him heartfelt thanks for everything he brought to the park and what he did for the city...but...hate to say it...TenderRony's a better option at SS than Jack at this point.

    Bring up Ciriaco. I think he'd hit better then Cedeno as well.

    I wouldn't mind seeing what the kid has got! It really can't be any worse can it? Cedeno is the hole in our team right now. Heck, SS is the whole in the entire organization.

    I'm waiting to see with Ciriaco. He's playing short at Indy and he's struggling big time right now.

    Agree....Jack can't even play 2nd base. He has been terrible on 2nd.

    Cedeno has been terrible but right now there just isn't any better internal option.

    Defensively he's sound, in the last two games he's shown a good arm, good glove, and no bat.

    Agree....good glove...no bat. He can also run like a deer.

    He did reach first on a strikeout after he swung at a slider 6 feet outside. I've watched the first two games and at the plate he's not impressive at all. I would imagine they're playing him at short to be ready in case Cedeno fails, but I don't see much. I'm hoping to see D'Arnaud there before too long. They played your boy Friday at 3rd last night. He looks like he can handle all the infield spots defensively.
