I always liked Cantu from his short time as a Red before. He could be a better option off the bench than Harris and he hits both leftys and righties for a career near the same average.

And he can play multiple positions as well.

any thoughts??

Would rather see him hitting off the bench then Willie Harris. But Hitting is contagious and maybe harris will catch what bruce and cozart and votto have. It can't be easy to be consistant when you get one bat a game if your lucky.

pretty much of a corner inf, plus he is ugly, with all the lovely faces on this team, why mess that up

Pass. He isn't an upgrade over our current crop of backup IFs, which isn't exactly a tough standard to beat. He is a miserable fielder who is pretty much limited to the corner IF spots and he can't hit - managing an OPS of only .517 in 2011 and .742 in the PCL this season.

You know when they put the players imagine on the big screen. Last game I was at and slick willie came to bat, I swore Martin Lawerence was being brought in by the picture he took.

He's gotta be on the short list if Willie doesn't pick it up.

Internally, who's the next option? Valkie?

Jorge Cantu has no shot at being a Red. He hits right-handed. And everyone knows that you must have a lefty on the bench. No matter how crappy he is.

Give Cantu a week of taking batting practice left handed and I'm sure he can hit above .100
