Couple years ago batting .286-28-117 playing 2nd for the Rays??? Nice numbers that Edwin hasn't approached yet???
Yeah, every other team in the NL Central. Cantu is such a bad fielder, the Reds didn't even want him as a backup 1B. I can only imagine the damage he does at third. Also, if I were Pete Rose, I would wager that EE has better offensive numbers than Cantu next year.
However, I will admit that there is something strange about no one willing to offer him a major league contract. I have no idea what it is, but just as bat off the bench, he seems worth a major league contract.
