Well, there really isn't a high with Quentin; he's like Carlos Lee or Joe Carter in his time, they like a certain kind of pitcher and perform well consistently against them, to the detriment of the soft-tossers that seem to baffle their timing. You need to play them right against their match-ups and that takes work, so most managers aren't chasing after a Quentin the way they're going after a Nelson Cruz right now, but by year's end, the two will have had similar seasons.
I'd go after a frustrated Chris Carpenter owner, whose overall feeling about him clouds what he's done in his past two or three starts. He's fine and healthy and on the verge of a hot streak.
Anibal Sanchez owners are weighing whether to sell high on him right now, since this is his first really consistent year. It's worth a shot, and it looks like he's for real.
Bud Norris won't give you the win totals of the other two by year's end, but his strikeout numbers are great and his ERA won't hurt you, either. He lost a no-no in the 7th the other day.
Maybe there's a Roy Oswalt owner that's mistaking his low-win totals as a decline in his veteran years, but he's been fantastic with Philly. Great ERA and WHIP, doesn't get burnt a lot, and the W's will be there by the end of the season.
Jonathan Sanchez would be another I'd try for.
Those would be the first 5 I go after and after that I'd think about Tim Hudson, Ian Kennedy, Jonathan Sanchez, Youlys Chacin and Ricky Romero if people aren't feeling like spending as much.
