Pirates Reportedly Could Pursue Ramon Santiago

FOX Sports reports that the Pirates could pursue Ramon Santiago to fill the void at shortstop left by Ronny Cedeno. This sounds fine to me - Santiago is a good defender at either middle infield position, and he's also pretty decent with the bat. I'd think he also wouldn't cost too much, since he's never really established himself as an everyday player. I still wish the Pirates would have kept Cedeno around for the low price they were getting, but Santiago is probably the better player. (Having both of them would have been ideal.) Cedeno is a few years younger, but otherwise Santiago is the superior option. It does sound like there's a chance the Tigers could re-sign him, but the Pirates might be able to lure him with the promise of an everyday gig.
