Cabrera signs with Cincinnati.

Sorry if someone already posted this:

"Cincinnati Reds sign Orlando Cabrera: Speaking of Mr. Cabrera, he's now joining his fifth team since 2007, and one of the few squads that had a legitimate opening at shortstop. No offense meant to Paul Janish, who ranked first among shortstops with 500-plus innings in fielding percentage (.991) and second in UZR in 2009, but Cabrera's bat provides a significant upgrade. Janish might yet be a factor as a late-inning defensive replacement, as Cabrera led all major leaguers in errors (25) and was the game's second-worst shortstop in UZR in 2009, meaning the veteran's days of 650-plus plate appearances might be over. Cabrera will probably bat in the upper third of the order, perhaps second, where Janish started in 35 of the team's final 48 games, and despite the fact that Cabrera's .322 career on-base percentage might make him an awkward fit, he could sneak his way into another 80-run, 15-steal season just due to the role"

You can't field or get on base.  But now that you are back in the National League, you will be an All Star.
