He was overrated before the start of the season and he's even more overrated now
Last year Quentin struggled all year with Plantar fasciitis which actually was hampering his swing. Historically he has a low babip (.256), but even if he restores his awful .220 line to his career norms you're looking at some good numbers. We all know he can mash and he started last night with 2 hits and a HR.
Same with Lind, he has a track record in the minors and the talent to back it up. He's hitting behind Aaron Hill right now which is really hindering his RBI opportunities and he's striking out a bit much. He's also not getting very lucky (.250 something BABIP with a career BABIP of .309). He'll start mashing again soon. I can see the Quentin argument because of his injury issues, even though you actually didn't even make an argument, just a general statement that really doesn't articulate anything. But good luck with your reasoning anyhow. Personally I'll be looking to trade for a few of the guys on this list. And I'm pretty sure you can bank on Lind.
