MLB radio is reporting that the White Sox will acquire Carlos Quentin from the Diamondbacks for Chris Carter.
We hope the Diamondbacks are getting a quality pitching prospect in return as well. Quentin's stock is down, especially following shoulder surgery, but he's still a fine bet to have a long career as a regular corner outfielder. Carter, who shares the same name as the first baseman the Diamondbacks traded to Boston in the three-team Wily Mo Pena deal, hit .291/.383/.522 as a 20-year-old in low-A ball last season.

You'd think that Quentin is a golden lock looking at his minor league stats.
Every minor league stop .400+ OBP. With nice power.
There must be something seriously wrong with him for them to gamble like this.
A ball is A ball. Chris Carter looks outstanding , but he really hasn't faced anything yet.
I think we'll hear more of this.
Maybe it is half a trade with Carter going to Oakland for Haren or Blanton???
