    Wouldn't it be nice to have Cantu...

    I was just looking at the stats on Jorge Cantu, and it's too bad we just gave him away for nothing!

    He's hitting .358 with 7 hr's and 24 rbi's.

    Pretty annoying when you consider he hit well when given the chance with us, and the need of a right handed bat on this team.

    If he played LF, yes it would be nice. He has never played the OF in all of his seasons in mlb.
    Who's on first?

    I wouldn't be against movin Edwin out of the lineup for a guy that drives in 100 runs.

    Cantu's always been a pretty good offensive player.

    It smarts a little less then not having Josh Hamilton.

    Rangers placed OF Josh Hamilton on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 27, with a strained rib cage.

    I have a feeling the Volquez-Hamilton trade will work out OK for the Reds.

    I agree with you 100%. I always hated dealing those guys.

    Nice to have you. You're an Aussie who likes baseball, I'm a Yank who likes rugby and AFL. Perhaps we'll get along well.

    Welcome...and totally agree.

    I never got it either. I mean the arbitration thing is a stretch in my mind considering how many stupid 2 year contracts the Reds sign guys too...Lincoln being the latest

    Maybe if the Marlins keep dropping games they'll give him up

    I'm guessin' Krivsky didn't want to eat any more bad contracts and was gun shy with Cantu.

    I didn't realize Cantu is only 27. He may even get better.

    Hindsight is 20/20, that's the way I view Cantu. How are we to know he'd do exactly the same for this team?
