An open letter to Carlos Quentin from a Twins fan
Hey man. How's it going. Life treating you well? Got a minute? I'd like to talk.
Seriously dude, you need to knock this shit the fuck out. And I'm not talking about the ball out of the ballpark. You've been doing enough of that this season. What I'm saying is, where the hell did you come from, and who the hell do you think you are?
Let's think about this for a second. Before this season, you had hit 14 home runs through 138 career games. Granted, you're a young dude, and who knows what to expect from you. But seriously, 26 home runs through 100 team games? Granted you're not on pace for any records of any sort, but still.
The White Sox gave up Chris Carter for you. No, not Cris Carter. Or Chris Carter. In fact, they gave up a Chris Carter that I can't even find a link for in the short amount of time I'm willing to dedicate to this post.
So let's quit fooling ourselves. You were expected (by most everyone) to be possibly mediocre. So why don't you do us Twins fans a favor and fall back into what your expected path was meant to be?
