Mark Canha in Colorado should be nice to watch. He's a good hitter who was never given a real shot, always reminded me of Gaby Sanchez in our system...

Mark Canha in Oakland should be nice to watch. Billy Beane knows when to acquire talent and Canha is just that.

Canha is being called a "limited ceiling but ready to play now first baseman"


Seems like we could have used one of those, huh?



While Canha has played 1B a lot I've always thought his numbers had more value at 3B with the occasional ability to play one of the corner outfield positions. While defensively he's best at 1B, I feel like that's a waste of his talent.
