#Marlins' return for Cantu will be Double A RHP Evan Reed & Double A RHP Omar Poveda, who is on DL recovering from TJ surgery. #Rangers #MLB

#Marlins Cantu just scored. And he is coming out to play third in the fourth.

He's still playing for us. lol

Reed is decent... Poveda has real upside, but coming off the surgery. If that is the deal, i don't feel like we overpaid. What is Cantu's FA status? Type B?

Cantu is a very solid addition, the guy can hit. The Rangers have a FANTASTIC offensive team

I believe he is an A.

You will like him especially since you don't have to play him at 3B.

Am I able to say their offense just got better!?!

Cantu is a gamer but where will he play? I remember when he was on the Rays and complained about not playing... he's not a bench player

He's either barely B, or not even B

The Marlins apparently cant pay for cell phones to let the people know Cantu isnt on the team anymore....

Yep, as of 7/25, Cantu has an Elias ranking of 55, which is just short of being a Type B.

He's still in the game.

Yeah he's still in the game, so I question if this is "done".

Still, Cantu will likely play the majority of the time at 1B with Davis struggling. Kinsler went on the DL today, wonder if they will try Cantu at 2B for old times.

Cantu plays a good 1B, he flat out sucks at 3B.

Dang the yankees better do something. All of a sudden the Angels, Rangers and Phillies have made some huge moves.

Kind of hard to believe this is a done deal. At least just yet.

niceee.. Cantu has been a Met killer lately.. get him out of the NL East..

Yeah and they didn't give up too much. Cantu is decent but not worth getting raped in a trade.

Usually trust Ken as a source.. not on this one.

Cantu is out of the game, but the Marlins normally do that for defense.

Texas is really pushing for this season... Lee, Molina and Cantu... Big deals

Young2Kinsler
07-29-2010, 05:55 PM
I want to celebrate because this is the last little deal we needed for a push, but I highly doubt this is officially done.

Young2Kinsler
07-29-2010, 05:55 PM
Hey Marlins fans, any chance Cantu can hack it at 2B for 10 games while Kinsler is hurt?

Not to mention their 1-4 pitchers (stats though Wed):

Cliff Lee 9-4; 2.40 ERA
Tommy Hunter 8-0; 2.31 ERA
CJ Wilson 9-5; 3.03 ERA
Colby Lewis 9-7; 3.40 ERA

Add the AL League Leader in saves, Feliz, and the Rangers are pretty stacked across the board.
