I'd rather have Volquez, just based on the idea that he has more value, but I can see Quentin having staying power throughout. Should be interesting to note that despite the walk rate, he's been able to keep the ball on the ground with some regularity.

No you simply cannot he has about 1/3 the talent that Quentin has and is playing well over his head.

Volquez's BB and HR rate have me worried everyrime I start him. Plus as a Dback fan I could just see Quentin becoming the stud all us fans thought he would be when he was crushing in the minors. But hey we have Eric Byrnes. :-P Wouldn't shock me to see a .270/.380/.520 line from Q this year.


What? His HR rate is incredibly low.

I think Volquez has more value and would return more in a trade if you were going to deal him today (I happily have Quentin and would love to move him since I'm stacked at OF, but can't get anyone to bite), but I think Quentin will outperform him the rest of the year. So it would depend on the situation...

I have both of them plus Ludwick and am not trading them considering I am in first place.
