you don't want to do that...encarnacion is a contributor in all cats and is much more valuable than cantu and hits in a great ballpark in a solid lineup
I'll be honest - I'm tired of buying into all the Encarnacion hype, which I did last year, and am doing again this year - albeit to much less risky extent. Sure his upside is great, but he's never gonna see that upside. Once again he's having an amazingly average spring and he'll start the season that way, the Reds will talk about replacing him and then around late July he'll start hitting just enough for them to stick with him. Now we've seen what Cantu is capable of when motivated, which I firmly believe he is now. Since Edwin's my back up, I have David Wright, I feel comfortable taking a flier on Cantu. Call me crazy, most do, but I really think that Cantu will return to being a very good hitter this year.
