Carlos Quentin in 2009

Postby RunReyesRun » Sun Oct 12, 2008 7:48 pm

What a breakout season, and great pick up for owners lucky enough to swipe him early on...

Quentin's stats and skills supported his '08 breakout, but just wanted to get your thoughts on whether he will sustain this going into 2009? The wrist injury is scary if it lingers, but where do you see him going in 09 drafts?

Unless Quentin has some kind of weird setback this offseason, I'd say he's a lock for a 3rd round pick next year. Personally, I'd like to see it again before I'd be willing to draft him that high...

He'll do fine, but he'll be on someone else's team, not mine.

I'll echo what was said. Late second - early third round, but I ain't drafting him that high.

I've learned over the years to worry about wrist injuries though. :-o

Someone will grab him way before I want to take a chance on him. Now for 2010 and on, it's a different story.

It sounds like the wrist injury isn't too serious considering Quentin wanted to come back for the post season, but still :-o

I agree with everyone else. I could see him very easily putting up big numbers again next year, but I'm not going to jump the gun to get him. I snagged him in a couple of leagues this year thanks to some injuries in my OF, but I definitely didn't see him putting up the numbers that he did.
