Quentin traded?

Thanks to em3 for the heads-up on this, which deserves its own story, I think. is reporting that Carlos Quentin has been traded to the White Sox for first-baseman Chris Carter.

First thought: no, it's not that Chris Carter.

It's this one, though since it appears this one can rake but not field his position...the similarities may be more than the differences. This one is only 21, and was apparently recently ranked Chicago's best position prospect by Baseball Prospectus' Kevin Goldstein. Awaiting full confirmation of this deal, and am researching more details on Chris Carter v2.0.

[Update: here's the full confirmation]
