Cantu involved in domestic violence dispute


Recommended Posts

MIAMI GARDENS - Third baseman Jorge Cantu and his agent both insist a domestic violence matter won't interrupt his season.

 

According to the St. Petersburg Times, Cantu has a Wednesday court date in Pinellas County stemming from a temporary protection order filed against him earlier this week. St. Petersburg resident Nanci Michelle Ikerd alleged she sustained bruises to her left biceps and was verbally threatened during a Feb. 8 incident.

 

After Friday's 6-4 loss to the Nationals, Cantu said he didn't anticipate missing any time to resolve the matter. The Marlins begin a seven-game road trip Monday in Pittsburgh that takes them through Atlanta for a two-game set Wednesday and Thursday.

 

"After their investigation we'll see what comes out," he said.

 

Added Steve Canter, Cantu's agent: "The charges are false. We're going to respect the legal process here and let it work itself through. He's not going to miss any time. This won't interfere with baseball in any way."

 

Signed as a non-roster free agent, Cantu won the vacant third base job and had started each of the Marlins' first 15 games there. Friday, Wes Helms got the start to give Cantu a breather.

I guess the important part is that he's not supposed to miss any time but it's certainly something to keep an eye on. If he has to miss time, we're in deep sh*t. The idea of Helms as an every day starter scares the crap out of me.

Helms won't start. McPherson has been solid in AAA. He would most likely get the call if Cantu has to miss alot of time. Don't think that will be the case though. Cantu should be fine.

Helms was pretty much brought in for situations like this. Emergencies. I'm 99% sure he'd start in the event of a Cantu absence. Besides, I'd rather (and I'm sure the FO would rather) let Dallas get some more ABs in AAA.

Yeah let's ignore the fact he hit a woman and only focus on the baseball side.

 

No where does that article say he hit her. The article came out April 18th saying she had filed a restraining order earlier that week stemming from something that supposedly happened in early February? Verbal abuse and bruises on her arm??

 

Don't jump to conclusions. This dosen't sound too legitimate to me.

If it's for a couple of games then it would be Helms. If Cantu were to go down for a long period of time being for this or injury or what have you, then I would expect Dallas to be called up. He's obviously healthy. Which it's why he couldn't make the team in the first place. It's not like he's 20 yrs old and needs more polish. Either way lets just hope that Cantu doesn't have any problems and continues to play well. That's what's best for this team right now.

They're both terrible infielders. Yeah, McPherson isn't a young guy anymore but he seems to be fitting in nicely in the minors (and yes I know its the PCL). I still think he has some potential but he needs a full year down there if he's going to live up to it at all. So in the event that Cantu has to miss time for whatever reason, I guess what I'm saying is I'd much rather see Helms.

 

Now I need to go wash my hands.

I don't think McPherson has played since Friday which surprised me when I looked at the gamelogs so I guess I'm wondering out loud why. I happen to agree that McPherson certainly isn't a defensive whiz at third but to so dismissively refer to both players as "terrible" undermines your argument.

 

I would say one is servicable and the other below major league average defensively but terrible, no.
