Re: Reds sign Orlando Cabrera to one-year, $3M deal; option for second year
As a middle infielder, I don't think Miles is that bad. But as a third baseman, I just don't consider him a viable option due to his lack of power (not that his on-base skills are all that impressive either). Because Scott Rolen has a tendency to miss out on so much playing time, I think the Reds would have been better off keeping Rosales and DFAing Taveras. But hey, at least Miles 'knows how to win' and has a 'veteran presence'.
