Mets' Cedeno reunites with Pirates pals
PITTSBURGH -- Monday marked a homecoming of sorts for Ronny Cedeno, who spent his last three seasons in Pittsburgh, starting at shortstop for the Pirates in 2010 and '11.

Cedeno remains close to Pirates outfielder Jose Tabata, whom he considers one of his best friends in baseball, as well as Andrew McCutchen and Neil Walker.

"It's fun," Cedeno said of his reunion. "But we've got to play baseball the same. It's nothing different."

Cedeno did not anticipate being booed the way relievers Frank Francisco and Jon Rauch were last weekend in Toronto -- though he did not rule it out, either. He said he was not booed when he returned to Chicago for the first time in 2009, after playing his first four big league seasons with the Cubs.
