Padres Lock Up Quentin
Agree to a three-year, $27 million extension with OF-R Carlos Quentin. [7/22]
When the Padres acquired Quentin, I wrote:
Calling the Padres’ acquisition of Quentin a precursor to another move—either now or later—is a safe bet. But the real action is on how many times Quentin causes Arizona fans to curse him and Byrnes’s name in the interim.
While technically a move, an extension is not what I had in mind.
