A’s Still In On Orlando Cabrera?

It was reported last week that the A’s might take a shot at free agent shortstop Orlando CabreraMLB.com’s Mychael Urban tried to confirm the rumor Tuesday, but received little response from either side.

Urban notes that "for the A’s, that’s hardly a shocker. General manager Billy Beane has long had a policy against discussing free agents, and he stuck to it Tuesday via text."  It is a bit strange that a player’s agent would refuse to discuss interest in his client, however. 

The silence can be looked at in a few different ways.  Maybe Cabrera’s agent feels that he’s close to a deal and doesn’t want to spoil anything with the normally-mum Beane.  Or maybe all is as it seems, and there’s simply nothing going on.
