    Cantu A Red

    per Rosenthal.

    Rosenthal just reported this on the Fox game that is on.

    You finished 4th in the race sir. I finished 3rd only because of my extended thread title.

    Re: Jorge Cantu to the Reds?

    WTH do we need him for? Yes, he'd be a decent RH bench bat, a sure upgrade there, but IIRC he's got more than a bench salary. He's a 2B that plays 1B.

    My only guess is that Conine is on his way out and they wanted a RH platoon partner for Hatteberg. Still, ????

    .244/.303/.356/.659

    This was in only 23 games.

    Better be someone I could care less about losing.

    Don't the Rays still owe us a player from Brendan Harris?

    No word yet on whom the Reds gave up. I would have to hope that it was a middling prospect.

    RL mentioned the theory of wanting a RH bat on the bench if Conine is soon to be traded. I could see that.

    We better not be giving up anything.

    Cantu is one of the last appealing players I could think of going after.

    Except he can't hit lefties, and never really has. Career wise, hes' been slightly better against righties. He is not the type you use a platoon player. I'd rather toss Hatteberg out against lefties too f those are the only options.

    Here's his career line against lefties:

    .291/.444/.735
