Line of the Day: May 9th, 2011

OF Carlos Quentin of the Chicago White Sox went 3-for-4, homered and drove in five runs in an 8-0 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. The home run was his eighth of the season and now has 23 RBI. He also doubled twice, accumulating 10 total bases on the night.

Line: 4 AB, 1 R, 3 H, 5 RBI; 2 2B, HR

My fantasy perspective: Quentin is currently leading or tied for the White Sox lead in doubles (15), runs (18), home runs (8) and total bases (75). His current .279 batting average is 26 points higher than his career average of .253, so there may still be some regression to his overall numbers if his average dips. At his current pace, he'd hit 36 home runs and drive in 104 runs. Both are right in line with career highs set in 2008.
