Cantu Called Up - Conine Traded - Game Thread

Go ahead and use this as the game thread since we have lineups here. - JD

Anyway, have been told that Jorge Cantu is getting called up. Not sure whose spot he would be taking, but it could be Bellhorn or something else is up. Will let you know as soon as possible.

I wonder if Conine has been traded, MLB Trade Rumors had a Conine to Mets rumor up earlier this morning.

Maybe the Reds optioned down EZ to carry an extra bench player, but that doesn't make a whole lot of sense, especially after EZ pitched pretty decent Saturday.

Update [2007-8-20 16:16:24 by MixFMKyle]: Conine It Is

http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/7139452

The New York Mets are on the verge of acquiring utility player Jeff Conine from the Cincinnati Reds for two Class-A position players, according to Major League sources. Conine will serve as a right-handed hitter off the bench, filling in at first base and possibly the outfield. He will be a replacement for infielder Damion Easley, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday with a sprained left ankle, . The Mets pursued Conine before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, but he was not considered a top priority at the time. Conine is batting .265 with six home runs and 32 RBIs in 80 games this season for the Reds.
