Just heard on the radio Q broke his hand bad enough for it to be in a cast. Don't know how reliable the report is. Apparently he hurt it slamming his bat down in the dugout after a K. Again, don't know how true it is, but that would really blow. If I find any articles regarding it I'll post.

Edit: Just saw it again on a whitesox.com official blog

I don't think that's true....


Quentin was examined Wednesday, and received a good report, so it looks like he is going to make a speedy recovery. Quentin (forearm) could return to the lineup Friday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. (RotoWire1:47PM)

That was Joe Cowley's account, below is White Sox beat writer Mark Gonzales report:

"The Sox's task becomes even tougher with the strong possibility that slugger Carlos Quentin probably won't be available until at least next week's Toronto series—and maybe MUCH longer."

And there is this...

According to manager Ozzie Guillen, Carlos Quentin (forearm) and Ken Griffey Jr. (back) are both expected to rejoin the lineup Friday. Outfielders Carlos Quentin (right forearm) and Ken Griffey Jr. (back) remained on the shelf Wednesday, but Guillen received good enough reports on both that he felt they could be back for the series opener against the Los Angeles Angels on Friday.

TheHotCorner7
09-04-2008, 08:21 PM
Ozzie:

"[Quentin] tried swinging the bat, he was not swinging the bat well and I don't want to put him in a bad situation where he gets four at-bats and it gets worse,'' Guillen said. ''That's the way he feels. He's day-to-day. When he says he's sore, that means he's very sore. [Today] we'll make the decision.''

This still sounds like forearm talk, not broken hand talk

After undergoing further testing early Thursday afternoon, early results on the MVP right forearm and wrist of Carlos Quentin were "good so far'', according to one White Sox source.
That doesn't mean that the club was ready to breath a deep sigh of relief just yet, however. They were still waiting to hear further opinion, which was expected by Friday afternoon.
Quentin, who leads the American League with 36 home runs and has been the Sox' most consistent offensive player all season long, was a late scratch before Monday's game in Cleveland, with the injury flaring up during batting practice.
The left fielder was plunked on the forearm area a few weeks back, and hasn't been able to shake the pain associated with it since.
If the Sox get the thumbs up Friday morning, Quentin could be back in the lineup for the start of the Angels series.

not to change the subject but i dont think he deserves it over pedroia if the red sox make it and the white sox dont, if your just looking at the stats though quentin does deserve it over pedroia, but if you do look at the stats alex rodriguez actually has better numbers than quentin does, but the yanks will miss. also even though he will get no consideration bc of his horrible team if grady sizemore gets 40HRs (at 31) 40SB (at 35) and 402B (at 32) with over 100BBs (at 89), he will be the first player in history to do that and i think hes just as worthy, but i doubt he gets all of those.

EDIT:

also i wouldnt be suprised to see the afraid of conflict writters vote krod or hamilton

Pedroia may be the most valuable player on the Red Sox, but Carlos Quentin is the MVP, IMO. Of course, whether or not the White Sox make the playoffs will have serious swaying potential.

Plus the Red Sox have their own nationally televised station that almost everyone watches every day.

So it will be Pedroia no matter what.

well Quentin cant be hurt too bad if we are talking about Pedroia being MVP

whitesoxfan83
09-05-2008, 12:15 PM
honestly i dont get this.

pedroia is having the best season of any bosox, better than drew, better than youklis, not to mention 2nd base is the weakest position next to catcher in all of baseball. plus his team is going to make the playoffs, if the white sox dont i think he deserves it.

but if you just want to look at the stats, alex rodriguez is having a better season, and grady sizemore has the chance to do something no player has ever done.

under the right circumstances all three are better picks than quentin, it doesnt mean i dont want him to win, i think he deserves it. but im not going to be shocked if he doesnt, espicially since we arent even considering hamiltons rise from the ashes story and how the writers would want to reward him for the season hes had, or krod potentially getting more than 60saves.

Your crazy WSF 83 Pedroia MVP :laugh:

His OPS is .883 thats not good for an MVP type guy.

at his own postion in the AL...

hes first in OBP, his 2nd in SLG and first in average. its not always about his OPS compared to OF, 2nd base is one of the weakest positions in baseball and hes dominating it.

furthermore his AVG is 46 points higher than quentins, but i guess that doesnt matter at all.

and if u want to talk strictly numbers, arod has a higher average by 28 points, a higher OBP by 10 points and is SLG 31 points higher.

you cant have it both ways, if your going to argue quentin deserves it cause of his stats, then he doesnt arod does. and if your going to argue importance to their teams what im saying is that pedroia will have proven more important to his team if the red sox make it and we dont, plus he plays at one of the weakest postions in baseball and is dominating.

Than Pedroia can be the 2B MVP not the season MVP.

MVP means Most Valueable Player to your team if Quentin was not on the Sox we would be battling for 4th place. If A-rod was not on the Yankees they would still probably be in the same spot maybe a little worse but definitely better than the Sox. Dye had an MVP 2006 but didnt win it cuz he was on a 3rd place team thats why A-rod will not win it cuz his team sucks.

o ok. so now your going to change from the stats argument to the importance to the team argument.

well again.....

IF THE RED SOX MAKE IT AND WE DONT.... without pedroia the red sox wouldnt make the playoffs, and without quentin the white sox wouldnt make the playoffs. so the tiebreak imo goes to the player who makes the playoffs, as ive said about 5 times thruout this thread.

if we both make the playoffs, then yes quentin deserves it. but as i said above if the red sox make it and we dont pedroia deserves it, just as if the red sox miss and we dont quentin deserves it

none of this matters cause i have a striking suspicion krod or hamilton will get it.

you have to remember they consider average too not just OPS, and quentins average sucks compared to the rest of the field

my biggest argument towards quentin would be that 13 or 14 of his homeruns have come in the 7th and beyond. now thats ****ing clutch

333 17 76 .378 .505 are great stats but not an MVP. He has been hot for 1 month when there are others that have been consistant all year long. I think Krod will win this by default. Everyone else will split the votes.

Carlos Quentin's season appears to be in jeopardy after the White Sox received MRI results on his injured right forearm and wrist Friday morning, according to sources close to the situation.

It's unclear how he suffered the injury, but he was a late scratch Monday and hasn't played since.

Quentin has 36 home runs and is a leading candidate for the AL MVP award.

If Quentin is lost for a significant amount of time, the Sox have options, including moving Ken Griffey Jr. from center to left field. And Nick Swisher would move to center.

because that was almost over a year ago that he put those numbers up, id rather call eldred up whos actually been you know. playing in baseball, and you keep looking at the numbers on paper but dont consider what his presence would do to this team, **** his numbers the team would be worse off with him.

An MRI on Friday apparently revealed discouraging results regarding Carlos Quentin's injured forearm, putting the rest of his season in jeopardy.
That's from the Sun-Times. According to Baseball Prospectus, WSCR radio in Chicago is reporting that Quentin has a broken wrist and is done for the season. If that's the case, the White Sox will play both Nick Swisher and Ken Griffey Jr. regularly in the outfield the rest of the way. Paul Konerko would also benefit. The White Sox as a whole, though, would suffer greatly

if griffey just started to hit the sox would be fine, were still 1.5games in first, and were about to go on a 9 game homestand.

quentin or not we are still winning the division, anyone who wants to put a sig on it hit me up. this **** is a set back no doubt but if griffey just starts to hit this team will be fine.

also dont discount the fact that scott linebrink is back and if our bullpen can straighten itself out we wont even need our offense as much as we have.

if griffey wants that ring so bad he should shut up and carry this team, again with linebrink back i think our offense may have some room to sputter.

There goes his MVP chances. IMO he was going to win it if he finished off the year playing decently. It looks like it is Dustin Pedroia's or K-Rod's award to win or lose now.

I think he was adjusting his batting gloves and went to tap/knock the bat with the bottom of his fist on the knob end of the bat and the bat caught some wrist. It's something a lot of players do. It's not aggresive or angry or anthing like that. I haven't seen the video yet but I don't think it was done in a violent manner.

The voice of reason. Our lineup is still stacked without him. Guys like JD, Paulie, Thome, Swisher, CUBAN, etc. Will just need to step it up, and I have plenty of faith that they will. Owens in CF will also be an upgrade over Swisher, especially later in the season when we have to play the Twins in the dome, and well need speed so we can close the gaps.

The White Sox will win the AL Central. If you'd like to, quote me.

Ok fellas to quote myself this is how Quentin hurt himself he had his press conference and they replayed it on the score. Quentin said he did have his bat in his left hand and hit his right wrist against the bat he said he has been doing this since he was 9yrs old and its just second nature. After the game was over he said forty minutes later his wrist was hurting he thought it was just sore then when he woke up tuesday morning it really hurt and he knew thats when he hurt it when he hit it against his bat in the 9th inning of mondays game. This was in his press conference earlier today.
