Reds sign Orlando Cabrera, per Tim Brown

Remember back in 2004 when the O.C. was good? Yahoo's Tim Brown is reporting that the Reds have signed Orlando Cabrera for $3 million with a $3 million option for next year. I'm not sure if it's a team, player, or mutual option. Ultimately, Cabrera wanted the chance to stay at shortstop, which the Rockies weren't going to give him. So he looks to be our new starting shortstop, pushing Paul Janish to the bench/bullpen. The theory, of course, is that Cabrera's offense will be an upgrade over Janish's. JinAZ takes a good look at that supposition below. His slash line for last year was .284/.316/.389, an OPS+ of 86. He hit 10 sacrifice flies, so he can "get 'em in." Cabrera is 35.
