Hey guys,

I'm about to buy an authentic jersey from MLB.com during their 30% off sale... should i get Danks or Quentin? I can't decide!!!

(I also wanted to make sure you guys were aware of the sale... ends tonight I believe)

*edit* I see this was posted in "The Parking Lot"... Sorry if I put it in the wrong spot!

I'm also getting a Danks jersey for Christmas! I'd go with him - there are going to be a lot more people with Quentin jerseys around, so it's something different.

Dayan Viciedo.

Honestly, you can't go wrong either way. Both should be with the Sox for a long time.

Danks is going to a mainstay in the rotation for years...you really think it's going to be 'different' for that long?

Haha, Dayan Viciedo... that would be pretty cool, though a big waste of money if he doesn't pan out. The last jersey I bought was a Joe Borchard jersey, so I've been down that road before. (To be honest though, I absolutely love my Borchard jersey!)

The only reason I'm considering Carlos is the jersey at MLB.com has an 08 All Star Game patch, which seems pretty cool.

Nope, but I still believe you'll see a lot more Quentin jerseys and player tees around the ballpark next year than Danks.

This issue doesn't really matter though. I hope Doug just buys the jersey of the player he likes best. They're both great choices.

Well, my current favorite Sox player is Mark Buehrle, but I already have a Buehrle jersey (though it is signed and framed), so I'm hesitant to get another. My next favorite current Sox players are probably Danks and CQ (now that Crede is all but gone *sniff*).

I agree Quentin jerseys will almost certainly be the most popular of the "new breed" of Sox players... but for some reason I really like the idea of the all star patch on the sleeve. Something slightly different, ya know? I think I'll go with the Quentin. Also, I don't think the Quentin is considered a custom jersey, so I should be able to return it if it doesn't fit.

You can't go wrong either way. I picked up a camouflage Danks jersey this summer. Complete ugly and ridiculous, yet somehow awesome.

What are you Danks jersey folks going to do when Jordan makes the big league team and John's jersey says JOH. DANKS on the back?

Look foolish. That's what.

Haha, I wish I had the guts to wear one of those Camo jerseys... I thought about picking up one of the 1983 throwback jerseys that they wore on Harold Baines day... but I decided a huge horizontal stripe across the chest wasn't a good idea for me, lol.

Lmao. For some reason I'm picturing these words coming from the Geico Gecko, which makes it even funnier.

I enjoy seeing the people at Sox and Hawks games who have personalized jerseys of lesser-known players. I love seeing a Paco Martin jersey or a Wayne Van Dorp jersey. Brings back memories for me!

But you also end up seeing people at Sox games wearing Jaime Navarro jerseys (wouldn't want to be seen in public with one).
