CARLOS QUENTIN RUMORS

San Diego Padres: Carlos Quentin’s new home

Carlos Quentin San Diego Padres manager Bud Black and General Manager A.J. Preller each brought up the possibility this week of outfielder/walking corpse Carlos Quentin potentially getting some reps at first base in an effort to get his bat in the lineup.
