He's actually been hit 116 times now, which ranks 7th among active players. The guys ahead of him are players like Jason Giambi and Derek Jeter, guys who literally have thousands
of more plate appearances than he. Quentin's been hit basically once every 25 times he steps to the plate. Guy just hangs over the plate and doesn't back down.
