As promised, Carlos Quentin is in The Best Shape of His Life

Shortly after the season ended Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin vowed to get into The Best Shape of His Life in an effort to avoid the injuries that have plagued his career and guess what? He actually did it:

Quentin has never played more than 131 games in a season and was in the Padres’ lineup for just 86 games last year, but hit .261 with 16 homers and an .877 OPS and signed a three-year, $27 million extension in July.

On a related note, “Inflammation-Fighting Food” would be an interesting parody song idea for “Street Fighting Man” by the Rolling Stones. Just saying.
