I thought it was pretty obvious I was implying Quentin represents the Padres as a whole.

Even if it was intentional, throwing at hitters is part if the game. It gives pitchers a competitive advantage. There are plenty of ways to retaliate without charging the mound.

Quentin's lucky Kemp doesn't play in the infield.

In my book, Crede has 2 less home runs than his statistics show, 4 less RBI, and one less walk (the one where he pinch hit for Uribe after coming in with a 3-0 count and taking one pitch).
