Found January 02, 2013 on Baseball Professor:
Carlos Quentin is actually a very consistent player. He almost always puts up the same numbers on a per-game basis, and he’s always due to miss some time. He’s certainly very flawed, but in 2009 and 2010 those flaws weren’t major enough to keep him from earning a spot on fantasy rosters across the net — he ranked inside the top 210 in both seasons. Unless you think Chase Headley is a perennial 30-homer monster now, Quentin is the best power option the Padres have, and that alone qualifies him to be the team’s cleanup hitter. It’s not the best lineup spot in baseball, but it’s all that someone of Quentin’s caliber — and injury history — could realistically ask for. And he isn’t even a batting average killer. I mean, it’s not very good, but you could definitely do worse with a late-round player who has 25-homer, 80-RBI potential. At a Glance Strengths: HR, OBP, SLG, OPS Neutral: RBI, BA, K Weaknesses: R, SB Player Comparisons Best-case scenario: Alfonso Soriano (CHC) with a better OB

Daily Friar 1.2.13

I hope that you all had a wonderful New Year’s Day doing whatever your heart desired. I know for a lot of people it is back to reality today; back to work, back to whatever life brings for you. Someone should tell the Padres front office to get back to work, am I right? Anyways, it has been slow as we all know and it seems that everybody the Padres show interest in gets swiped...
