Some evening odds and ends for your enjoyment...
- The Marlins are "pretty far along" on a deal with Jorge Cantu. He'd battle with Jose Castillo for playing time at third base. Dallas McPherson may be another possibility - he had talks with another club (the Giants?) recently fall through. The Fish are one of three or four clubs McPherson likes, though he's not sure whether the interest is mutual. I hope the Marlins sign 'em both, maybe one of the three works out.
- Nick Cafardo discusses the slight possibility that the Red Sox and Kevin Youkilis discuss a long-term extension rather than go year-to-year with him. This is Youk's first year of arbitration eligibility. I imagine his salary could jump up from $425K to $2-4MM.
