Cantu = Buy Low?

Postby stumpak » Thu Jun 08, 2006 5:02 pm

He was hurt for more or less the all of the games he played before going on the DL after fouling a ball off of his foot during the first week. Is it possible that his stinky performance could be largely chalked up to this?

While he may be on the WW in some leagues, it seems to me that he is a good buy low candidate in deep leagues like mine where he is still rostered.

Any opinions?

He is a fantastic buy-low, just do it quick because he's going to heat up. I'll take any 2b with 30-100 potential.

Still don't think trading Harden for him is one of my good decisions... :-[

Yeah, a great buy low option, though you may have waited a little too long. An owner that has waited this long for him to return, probably won't just give him away at this point.

If you haven't already, check the link beneath my sig. ;-D

great trade, right before hall started slumping!

Also, Hall is looking at a part-time job again pretty soon with Hardy coming back. (he isn't helping himself with this 8-45 slump)

I've been trying to pawn Hall off for the last two weeks... I already have Cantu, so no help there... :-/

As a Cantu owner, I agree with the previous poster who pointed out that those who held on to Cantu through the DL stint won't be too quick to let him go. I certainly haven't let his time on the DL hurt his value in my eyes, plus he had a good rehab stint.

But if you can get someone to part with him, more power to ya! ;-D
Is there anything fluffier than a cloud?
If there is, I don't want to know about it.

Yea that's the funny part, last year he hit 17 hrs in 501 abs. This year, he has 13 in 182. He is hitting with a new approach, which is causing his average to drop and k's to go up.

Do you guys think he is nervous about keeping a starting job once hardy comes back, and is pressing and trying to do too much?

by the way, he's in my lineup today. ;-D
