Well as i recall there was another "Cant Miss OF Prospect" a few years back by the name of Jason Kubal, who like Quentin has been slowed by injuries. This year he is expected to platoon at DH with Craig Monroe.

Anyhow I believe Quentin has more upside and accepted a deal that would send my Kubal for him.
20team League.

Nice read though. Hopefully it does work out for CQ.
Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

Thanks for the comment powenM. There's no question Quentin is a deep sleeper who souldn't be drafted in 12-team leagues, but is worth the risk (IMO) in deeper drafts.

Looks like very few people agree with me, though - 1.75 rating from 8 votes!! !+)

Bah, maybe, maybe .1% (yes, point 1%) of those who read it, rate it. Could be a 1 or a 5, either way, it's not all that accurate of a measure because of the small sample size. Unless the discussion thread blows up about it, I'd say the piece was fine. :-D ;-D

Owens hits the DL

He'll probably be back in a couple of weeks, but in the meantime, Quentin will be on the roster, and have a chance to start some games. No guarantees, obviously, but keep an eye on him!

I think it would suffice to say that you hit the nail right on the head with this one.

lol, it's nice to be right once in a while! :-D

(I'll gloss over another prediction I made that Aaron Hill would be a top 12 2B by the end of the year... !+) )
