If there's a reason I put a "What did we expect?" section into all the wrap-ups (other than to lampoon my preposterous season preview), it's to properly explain why Carlos Quentin's good offense-terrible defense season provoked such volcanic rage amongst fans, pundits, and my sister and I.
I swear, Carlos had to have been responsible for 12-15 extra rounds of beer purchased at the game this season for the sibling and I. Only CQ grounding into a double play could make my sister settle for MGD.
Stat line: .243 BA, .342 OBP, .479 SLG, .821 OPS, 25 2B, 2 3B, 26 HR, 73 R, 87 RBI, 50 BB, 83 SO, .356 wOBA, -22.9 UZR, 0.0 WAR
What did we expect?: The moon, with cherries on top.
And perhaps that was extremely unfair because after all, how does one bring you the moon twice?
