Anyone else interested in Carlos Quentin?

The D'Backs apparently just signed Eric Byrnes to a 3 year, $30 million extension (and Torii Hunter's agent just popped open a bottle of champagne).  Word is they are shopping Quentin.  I want him.  Anyone else?

Carlos Quentin is a 24 year old right handed hitting corner outfielder.  He has raked everywhere, with the exception of the start of this year, when he slumped in Arizona, and has been optioned back to AAA.  He hit in the minors all the way through, with good power, and has a 1:1 K to BB ratio in about 250 AAA games.  He debuted in the majors last year, and while his average was down (.253), he posted a .342 OBP and a .530 SLG, which is a monster ISO.  He doesn't strikeout too much, and he walks a lot.  He's had some shoulder problems, but I think he's OK.  

PECOTA suggests a future where he goes .290/.380/.500 every year. Now, that assumes Arizona, which is a hitter's park, but even taking something away for park effects, that's an effective player, especially for someone who should have two more seasons pre-arbitration.  

No doubt Arizona wants pitching, and probably cheap pitching.  I'd give up Slowey, certainly; do you think that would do it?
