If they'd pick up about half of the deal, yes.

Fukudome is older and has a worse contract, too.

If anything I'd do Quentin for fellow slow-starter Aramis Ramirez. Third base is solved.

Fukudome costs more and has significantly less upside.

Even with his mental struggles, the Sox could do a lot better for Carlos Quentin. Pass.

No. He costs too much and given his statistics from the last couple of years he will start to really suck by June.

No and hell no.

Fukodome is a prime example of why GMs (and fans) should resist the urge to try to win the free agent sweepstakes.

I never hear about all these "mental problems" with players from other teams. This has been going on for some time now with the White Sox. I think something needs to be changed.

Javier Vazquez, J.D. Drew, B.J. Upton from last year, Milton Bradley, Brad Lidge, Chuck Knoblauch, Carlos Gomez, Jeremy Bonderman, and Dontrelle Willis are probably relieved that you have never heard about their problems.

Like others have said, he's too expensive. Also, Carlos is relatively younger and has a better chance of turning it around offensively.

I don't mind trading Quentin, but not for Fukudome.

Are people seriously giving up on Carlos already? Wow.

Btw, despite the slow start, Quentin is still on pace for 93 ribs. He's got a career .824 OPS, and we want to abandon ship because of a rough start to a season??

That trade is absolutely ridiculous!!!
That's not even close to being a fair exchange.

Is this the same guy who accepted less money than Kenny offered, in order to become a Cub? No thanks.

The vocal minority should not be confused with the majority.

Fukudome is 33, has a lousy contract, and would reduce the Sox' already weak offensive roster to perhaps the worst hitting team in the American League.

I wouldn't make this trade even if these two players had identical contracts.

The Sox better hope that Carlos can get his mojo back, because they need his offensive potential. Trading him for a guy like Fukudome would be to limit any chance of having a potent offense, now and into the near future.

If I recall correctly, it was because he wanted to be the first Japanese player on a team.

I think it also had to do with the fact he said he didn't want to play CF which I believe is what he mostly plays for the flubbies or did.

If we had him we wouldn't have Alex. All in all turned out to be a great thing not landing him...

He turned us down for the cubs and said FukuWhite Sox.

And I'm glad he didn't sign here because he Fukuing sucks.

So if Hendry thinks he can dump him off on us, he must be a FukuingDummy!!

At $13M for 2010 and $13.5M for 2011, Fukudome disagrees with you. He thinks that it is a most excellent contract. (per Cot's)

That boils down to appx. $22.5M for the balance of this year and all of 2011. No thanks.

I think it also had to do with the fact he said he didn't want to play CF which I believe is what he mostly plays for the flubbies or did.


This is my recollection as well. Which is why I laughed long and hard when the Cubs stuck his ass out there in CF last year. With the signing of Marlon Byrd this year, it probably won't happen as often, but still...less $ for the same position after all.

Fukudome has looked pathetic at times, overmatched by power pitchers and looking drained by the end of the season. I think that the AL pitchers would be even rougher on him.

Conclusion - HELL NO! KW, JUST SAY NO!

Dumb; this might be blog worthy speculation if in 2 months the Sox are vying for first and Quentin was still struggling and Fukudome was still playing well.

Not sure what the Cubs would see in Quetin either. He's had one good year in his otherwise disappointing career.

Well, Scott Gregor characterized his Quentin for Fukudome trade proposal as "idiotic." No argument there.
