I was watching the Cubs-Diamondbacks game on the MLB package today, when analyst Mark Grace mentioned an historic moment occurred in baseball history that received very little fanfare. Last weekend, Arizona rookie Carlos Quentin hit a home run off Chad Qualls of the Astros last Saturday in Houston. It turns out it was the first time in MLB history that a hitter with the last name starting with Q hit a home run off a pitcher with the last name beginning with Q.
The Omnipotent Q was thoroughly impressed and proud, and I'm shocked that this great moment in baseball history was just about ignored by the media at-large.
Shame on all of them.
