White Sox Photoshop Cards: Carlos Quentin

Card #8 - Carlos Quentin

Don't count Carlos out of anything. He was traded to the White Sox for a Class A player and almost didn't make the team out of Spring Training. A key injury to Jerry Owens and a little luck provided a path to a breakout season for Carlos Quentin.

With his rash of injuries behind him, Carlos has led the American League in home runs for most of the year. With Carlos' revitalized career, he surely is enjoying taking a bite out of the competition.

I had another image of Carlos all set up, until a candid moment was caught on film from the August 18th game against Seattle. After a strike, Carlos took his bat to his mouth and appeared to attempt a bite.

Since this is the exact thing that I miss from being on cards, this image was immediately put through the Photoshop filters and immortalized on digital cardboard. I had a rare image of Carlos smiling, but this certainly beats that.

You are coming up with some very cool cards. Lucy's wild about this one. Anything funny gets points, and this reveals some good humor on the part of Carlos Q.

It's rare to get a moment like this from Carlos. He's usually very focused before, during and after game time.

Feel free to print out the image for your collection, if you like.
