He had 16 errors in 2008, 11 errors 2007, 16 errors in 2006

Are you folks sure the Reds are going to get that much offense from this guy to off-set his errors, and the hit that runs allowed might take and the run differential?
2009 .311 OBP against RH, 2008 .327 against RH, 2007 .339 against RH
i know what you are saying but imo signing Cabrera is a better move than going with what we have in house. i have to trust the front office that they did their homework a bit & feel OC's defense will be more 2005-2008 rather than 2009. if it is then we is worth a lot more than Janish even if his OBP isn't that great. remember he's a SS not a slugger. plus we are comparing him to Paul 'Mendoza Line' Janish
