The Education of Woo!

Ok, so some of you are obviously pretty into baseball, and I'm only borderline baseball nerd guy, so hopefully somebody can educate me on this topic: Why not go after Carlos Quentin of the White Sox via trade?

 

Per MLB traderumors, the White Sox are shopping Quentin and seeking bullpen help. Quentin is still relatively young, still relatively cheap, has massive power, and fits a position of need for the Pirates in right field. He's been injured off and on the last few years, but but up monstrous numbers in an MVP caliber season three years ago. Also, his numbers last year would still look quite impressive on the Pirates, so its not like he's Ryan Doumit style injured.

 

Now I love Joel Hanrahan and, to a lesser extent, Evan Meek. However, if Hanrahan is enough to get the conversation started, I'd pounce on Carlos Quentin. A good closer on a bad team just doesn't equal the value of a corner outfielder with protypical power. So who's going to point out the holes in this plan?
