Reason No. (Who's Counting?) as to why there are no sports like San Diego sports. Homegrown Padre Carlos Quentin misses the season's first 49 games with a bum knee, finally gets to play in Chicago and whips the Cubs into gummy bears. He hits three home runs, scores five times, drives in six runs, bats over .500, and despite his efforts with and against the Wrigley wind, the worst team in baseball gets swept. So Twitter's all atwitter. Trade the guy. He's 30 years old. Prone to injury. He's going to be a free agent. Get something for him.
Talent drain in this town must stop now, beginning with Carlos Quentin
