View Full Version : Trade TCQ poll

Trade him, too injury prone.
Keep him, though streaky, he's a gamer and never quits.

Not really answerable without discussing for whom and to achieve what result.

Assuming fair market value is offered (whatever you might think that is), I prefer to keep him and DH him even more than in the past. While he may never have another season like 2008, I still fear that he can get 90% of the way there for the remainder of his career. I would rather keep TCQ and not re-sign Buehrle if the choice is one or the other.

I say trade him, because I want to rebuild. But if not, keep him and let Viciedo continue to learn to play defense in Charlotte. He looks like he's more than a year away from playing a league average LF, let alone right.

Keep him in RF and put Viciedo in LF?

I dunno. I'd like to see what we can get in return for him. If we can't get anything good, then let's try to bring him back. I'd much rather have Buehrle back, though.

I say for prospects.

I would really rather have Buerhle than Quentin and in order to keep Buerhle you're going to have to trade Quentin. On top of that fact, Quentin is just too streaky and injury prone to be a consistent number two hitter (and I don't mean number two in the lineup, I mean in terms of offensive production). He can carry you for two weeks but then he can disappear for two months too.

His value isn't going to command a hell of a whole lot.

I'm for trading almost anyone, as long as you can make a good deal. In my view "untradeable" players are few and far between.

Another injury season, the last year before becoming a FA, his worth is not much. That being said I guess it depends on how much 6M means to the club.

Trade him - too injury prone and streaky at best.

I'm not opposed to trading him for the right return package that would help the Sox.

It's a gamble either way, but I say keep him. He'll have extra incentive to play well since he'll be in his contract year.

His best position is DH. We already have plenty of options there between Konerko being a DH 40+ times and The Albatross otherwise known as Adam Dunn.

After that, it is LF, and barely at that since he cannot throw anymore.

I say just dump him. He has had plenty of opportunity to establish himself and if he stars somewhere else, oh well. How long should we wait?

Besides, I'm anxious to see what Tank can do in RF and in the lineup every day. He's already established himself as the best OF arm on the team.

His value was highest before the deadline (before he was injured), but unfortunately Kenny decided not to pull the trigger on any deals. His value this offseason will be considerably lower, I would think.

Still, I think Kenny needs to deal him. I love CQ, and he's shown that he can carry a team when he's on fire. However, he seems to be a very streaky hitter, and obviously is very injury prone (not to mention his defensive skills, which aren't very much).

Trade away the second best run producer on a team that has a run producing problem? I say keep him.

I voted keep him. He's an all*star and will be again in '12. :)

Which is why you trade him when his value is high now. After next year he is going to want 10M+/year. If he will continue to get hurt Sox can not sink that money into an injury prone OF when they have 2 DH's for the next 2 years anyways. Trade him for young pitching and put Viciedo out there or in LF.
