Since it's September, that means it's a time of panic in Chicago. Cubs fans are dealing with a five-game losing streak, and the thoughts of another late season collapse have entered their fragile psyches. Evidence of this can be seen in the fan's reactions to the recent fears that Carlos Zambranomight be lost for the year.
Well, while that fear has been put to bed, there's another one that's all ready to take it's place. Except this time, it's located on the south side of the city. White Sox fans are preparing for the worst as it's looking like the team may lose Carlos Quentin for the rest of the season.
Carlos Quentin's season appears to be in jeopardy after the White Sox received MRI results on his injured right forearm and wrist Friday morning, according to sources close to the situation.
It's unclear how he suffered the injury, but he was a late scratch Monday and hasn't played since.
This would obviously be horrible news for the White Sox. In a season that has seen a lot more downs than ups offensively, Quentin has been the lone constant in the White Sox lineup. He's gone from somebody nobody in Chicago had ever heard of, to being a legit AL MVP candidate.
To lose him now would be a devastating blow in the team's battle with the Twins. Now, if you don't mind me, I'm going to go get a head start on my drinking this weekend.
