Jeff Zrebiec says the Os are in talks with free-agent Alex Cintron about coming aboard, presumably with a minor league deal, to compete for the shortstop spot.
Now, he's been a bench guy the last two seasons with the White Sox, and I just don't see him starting. Honestly, I'd rather have Hernendez starting games and using his glove but whatever.
It seems as thought the Os are willing to dole out the minor league contracts with hopes that this will motivate the younger guys or simply fill spots (short) that remain voids. What are your views on this?
I'm all about minor league contracts. These guys are cheap and help push the young players, as I said above.
