Problem is, over the last two seasons, Quentin has been bothered by a right knee injury, limiting him to a total of 168 games out of a possible 324.

    Texas Rangers v Detroit Tigers

    These were the last baseball games that count — despite the claim about the All-Star Game counting, which is certainly does not in any real sense — until Friday. That’s some b.s. right there. Why don’t they play the All-Star Game with only 25 guys on a team and let the rest of the league…

    There were quite a few people calling for Carlos Quentin to receive a lengthy suspension after charging the mound and breaking Zack Greinke‘s collarbone.
