09:51 AM ET 06.10 | The Dodgers need help, and Quentin would be a perfect fit. Yet Kevin Youkilis might be more likely to end up in L.A. When Quentin came off the disabled list and hit five home runs in his first six games for the San Diego Padres, his name instantly jumped to the top of all the trade rumors. The Padres might be better off trying to sign him to a long-term contract, even if he can file for free agency this fall. Quentin grew up in San Diego. The Padres cannot lure power hitters to Petco Park, where long balls are long outs. So the trade price for Quentin might be prohibitively high. The Padres could afford Quentin on a qualifying offer, because their guaranteed salaries for next year total $11.5 million. He could sign a long-term deal elsewhere - and the Padres could collect draft picks - but he never has played in more than 131 games. The Dodgers have money, and that might lead them to Youkilis, who would be a significant upgrade over James Loney at first base or Juan Uribe at third.

Between Quentin and Youk, that's a lot of missed games due to injury.

I think it was more the "savages at Chavez ravine" than the description of Youk that I found funny. No offense, cat :)
