How long before Quentin's on the block?

08:10 AM ET 05.31 | Since coming off the DL, Carlos Quentin has been on the kind of tear that raises the eyebrows teams that need offense. [The Padres are] 16 1/2 games back in the NL West (no other team in baseball is more than 12 1/2 games out of first place). It's already time to start thinking about selling, and Quentin, a poor defensive outfielder who probably isn't a long-term piece in Petco Park, would seem to be an obvious candidate to go in a trade this summer. Some could use him more than others, but just about every AL contender aside from the Angels could find a way to fit his bat in somehow. He'd also seem to be precisely the right-handed bat the Reds need in the cleanup spot.

You'll have to be more specific, that describes about a dozen teams.

My Money is on Carlos being on the Shelf between now & the deadline...

Then they'd be lucky to get a bullpen catcher for him...

I think there are many teams that would take a .250 hitter that can hit 25-30 dingers a year.

I am SD I am listening right now to offers. He and several Cubs could end up in the other league.

Stupid Padres will trade him for two "can't miss" minor league relief pitchers and another back-up catcher. I hate my team...
