I think it is a good trade for both teams. DBacks didn't have anywhere for Quentin to play after extending Byrnes. His value was just going to get worse as the DBacks held onto him. See Hairston, Scott for the example of that. To get a guy who could be the power bat we lack down the road or who we could turn in a possible trade with Oakland or Baltimore for him I think is a good thing. Hey at least I don't have to watch him blow up for tha Padres and almost lead them to the brink of a playoff spot.

Well thats true. but Quentin has nice numbers and wasn't he a highly touted prospect of the organization?

Even if he is a 20 year old they have Conor Jackson cloggin his path too
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I'm trying to remember exactly what Quentin's injury was. Wasn't it a torn labrum on his non-throwing shoulder? Was there another injury? Doesn't seem like this would significantly affect an OF'er long-term. I think this is a great trade by the Chisox.

I believe his injury was very similar to the one that's destroyed Scott Rolen.

It's my understanding that the organization has soured on Jackson and that they don't view him as the solution at 1B anymore. I think they don't believe he will develop the power necessary to play the position. I doubt if he ever gets more than 2/3 of the ABs for 1B. He got 415 ABs last year and I expect it to be about the same next year. It's going to be some combination of Reynolds, Tracy, and Jackson, thereby devaluing everyone. Perhaps even Jackson will be on the outside looking in.

Too bad. I own Jackson in a league. It was a pain trying to figure out when he would play.

I don't think it was the same injury as Rolen, but power may be a concern.
