That way he and his .263/.303/.354 line and 36-year old Shortstop defense can hit the highway.
Walt has said that it's not prudent to give $4M to that kind of production when you've got a player at 1/10th the salary who plays lights-out better defense and actually hits better ready to take his place in Janish.
Janish only needs to cover Shortstop for 2011 and be a backup to Cozart who can take over in 2012, with more help on the way after that.
Cabrera is the type of player who thinks he's better than he is, so hopefully that carries him out of Cincinnati and onto another ballclub.
I'd rather have Janish' Defense and Janish' better On-Base-Percentage.
Janish' line: .260/.338/.385
