Quentin gets Jack Clarked

16 posts in this topic

American League home run leader Carlos Quentin has a broken wrist, and the Chicago White Sox left fielder will have surgery Monday that could sideline him for the rest of the season.

Quentin was removed from the lineup before Tuesday's game because of what the White Sox described then as a sore right forearm, and he hasn't played since. The team said Friday that he was hurt during last Monday's game at Cleveland.

A screw will be inserted into the wrist, and he will be re-evaluated in two to three weeks. Quentin is batting .288 with 36 homers and 100 RBIs.

Quentin missed two games after he was hit on a forearm by Boston's Josh Beckett on Aug. 11. When Quentin returned Aug. 14 and was plunked by Kansas City's Kyle Davies, Quentin became the first player hit by a pitch in six straight games since at least 1920.

Quentin has been hit 20 times in all this year, the most in the American League.

Chicago said Quentin will be operated on by hand and wrist specialists, Dr. Mark Cohen and Dr. John Fernandez along with orthopedic surgeon Dr. Charles Bush-Joseph of Midwest Orthopedics at Rush University.

He still deserves the MVP. We will just have to have other guys step up and fill the gap. Griffey signing is not looking too bad right now, eh?

Ya I thought when they signed Griffey they were off their rocker, but can he stay healthy enough to play a couple games in a row?

Windy can't argue with that one, but there are players lurking. I do hope things go well, but it does look good for the sox when your back up is 80 and cant play 3 games in a row.

G.C.

can someone batting only .288 win MVP?

A better question for Windbag: Can someone playing for a team that misses the postseason win the MVP?

(Oh, yeah... Rod Carew 1977.... But he batted .388...) smile

Hey Sled,

There was this team a few years ago and they dominated the playoffs and won the World Series in a crushing fashion and the highest batting average from any of their players was .290.

Want to hazzard a guess as to what team that was? We will be just fine, and who would you pick as MVP?

Carlos Quentin and Lil' Nicky Punto are both currently hitting .288... Coincidence?... or conspiracy?... You decide.

(There is that HR gap, but LNP just needs to hit 34 of 'em in Sept to catch up and he's a shoe-in for MVP...) smile

Oops... This just in: LNP goes 0-3 in tonight's game and is now down to .285. All MVP hopes now must be considered 'on hold.' Stay tuned.

Buzzy,

You ole stalker you! I haven't talked to you in a month of Sundays! How's life treating you, man. Our power is out at the office so I am sitting in my shorts at home waiting for it to get turned back on. Might get a day off here. My daughter got married Saturday. How's the photo business? Looks like it is the Twinks and Pale Hose once again, to the amazement of all the "experts" who salivated over the Kitties and Tribe.

Pauly did not look good taking that tumble, nervous times here, to be sure! But how about DA BEARS!!!!!

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
