Quentin wants quick resolution on status

After the final game of the 2011 season, Kenny Williams told Carlos Quentin to stay in shape and said "I'll see you in the spring."

That March encounter could always be with another team, though.

Quentin is cognizant of the trade rumors involving his name, and expects to find out about a deal within the next week. So it looks like the fans were right -- Quentin does appear the most likely White Sox player to be dealt by the end of the winter meetings, and if not by then, soon after.

MLB.com's Scott Merkin mentions in the article that the Sox appear ready to give Alejandro De Aza a shot at starting in left field, which is good to see. For whatever reason, there's been some speculation that the Sox could try to acquire a left fielder who can lead off despite the fact the Sox have a perfectly good one already on the roster.

There was also this surprising quote from the article:

"That gives me two months, before going back to camp, to develop a new swing that will be probably thrown in the garbage the first week of Spring Training," said Quentin with a laugh.

I didn't know the uber-serious Quentin was able to laugh. I always pictured him laughing like Rex Banner from the Simpsons, choking out a few coughs and then saying "well, you all know what laughter sounds like."
