Cantu, Can't Do???

In somewhat of a surprise, the Devil Rays optioned second baseman (and former all-star) Jorge Cantu to AAA, replacing him with phenom-without-a-position, BJ Upton. Cantu was at the core of trade speculation throughout the offseason, and there were plenty of teams who would have been quite happy to acquire his services if the Rays made him available AND if they were willing to take someone reasonable in return (which seems to be against their code, regardless of whom is at the helm of the organization). We'd love to see Cantu ply his trade in Flushing, but not at the cost of any of our top tier minor league talent. Keep an eye on this situation...
