Can Cantu be a key to 2011 season? 

The 2011 San Diego Padres represent the second roster assembled by Jed Hoyer and his staff. One thing is pretty clear about Hoyer’s philosophy about roster construction; he understands the value of bench players. Last year Jerry Hairston Jr. played a key reserve role for the Friars. This year Jorge Cantu has the chance to impact the Padres on-field fortunes in much the same way.



About the author: Glen Miller

Life-long baseball and Padres fan who attended his first Friar games way back in 1983. I've been a contributor on Friarhood for more than two years and enjoy talking baseball with the knowledgeable fans that frequent the site. Prior to my beginning here I owned and operated my own San Diego sports site while writing for several other sites focusing specifically on hockey. When not watching, reading or writing about sports I might be sleeping or perhaps spending time with my family since I have few other hobbies. I did recently try my hand at golf and am a pretty good pool player to boot.
