The San Diego Padres desperately need help at the plate. Their anemic offense last year killed any chance that the Padres could reach the playoffs. To help score some runs, San Diego traded a pair of prospects to the Chicago White Sox for outfielder Carlos Quentin. Quentin, who grew up in San Diego, should be able to help right away. Since becoming a regular four years ago, the 29-year-old has been an impressive power hitter. Last season, Quentin had 24 homers, 77 RBIs and 53 runs. While his batting average leaves much to be desired (.254), his power is enough to get the Padres excited. As for the White Sox, this is another step in their rebuilding process. In return for Quentin, they get pitchers Pedro Hernandez and Simon Castro. Both played in the minor leagues last season. With the Padres, Quentin will play left field. He’ll also be in the middle of their lineup — perhaps hitting cleanup for the offensively starved squad. Carlos Quentin traded to the Padres (Image: TSN.ca) Post f...

What To Expect from Carlos Quentin in PETCO Park

Determining what a player can do is always a tricky task.

Hopefully I’ll accomplish the former as I weigh in on Carlos Quentin’s 2012 campaign. There are a number...
