Carlos Quentin: Speaking of inexplicable five-year trends, we find ourselves in yet another year where Quentin has a BABIP well below the usual league norm. His career high in BABIP was in his breakout 2008 campaign (.278), and his career total is .249 in over 1,600 PA. Now, people will instantly point toward his low LD rate (15.8% career), but multiple studies show that the tried-and-horribly-horribly-false method of justifying low BABIPs with low LD rates is pretty much the lamest thing you can do (worse than wearing Crocs but better than being Steve Phillips). Another wrinkle to the statistical story that only serves to confuse me more is that while Quentin has never had a BABIP above .278 in the majors, he never had a mark below .313 in the minors. According to Minor League Splits, he did all that with a batted ball profile almost identical to the one he currently sports. Weird, huh? His BABIP currently sits at .203, which is very, very low no matter which way you slice it.
Perceived value: 11th-12th round

I drafted him in too many leagues this season expecting a big rebound but safe to say he's been my largest disappointment. Most likely going to look to sell high in the near future as the threat of injury and/or a return of a crappy BABIP seem inevitable.
