Orlando Cabrera


http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/ben_reiter/11/04/reiter.50.free.agents/index.html?eref=sihp

In the article on the other side of that link the author suggest the Pirates might pick up Orlando Cabrera to provide an alternative to Ronny Cedeno, and to provide leadership.  I sincerely hope that does not happen.  I would prefer the Pirates to take a fliers on guys like Chris Young or Rich Harden.  Maybe they won't get back to their pre-injury level, but I think it would be a better way to waste cash than Cabrera.  That said they may not be "down" enough yet to consider playing in Pittsburgh.

Any other opinions?  Some of the team shifts the author suggest seem a little ridiculous; of the 40 guys he thinks will change teams aparently 25% of them will go to the NL West.
