The Red Sox would “almost certainly” try for Carlos Quentin

Carlos Quentin’s name has popped up in rumor gulch a few times over the past 24 hours. The Phillies are said to be interested. I presume the Braves would be too.  Now Danny Knobler tweets that the Red Sox would “almost certainly” be interested in the White Sox’ slugger too.

Only problem with that: Bob Nightengale of USA Today says, that the White Sox plan to keep him. So it’s kinda moot.

He would be quite a pickup, however. He’s hitting .265/.356/.516 with 20 homers and he’s under team control through next year.  Anyone who needs a bat should be interested if and when the White Sox take themselves off the Quentin do not call list.
