Unusual Suspects: 'Q' inspires write-in bonanza

Mysteries: Where did this guy come from? Why did the Diamondbacks give him away for 10 cents on the dollar? Does he get inundated by British secret agents who confuse him for Q from "James Bond," asking him to make them ridiculous things like explosive pine tar or an X-ray batting helmet? ... Conspiracy theory Of course, there are always ulterior explanations. While Quentin has been enjoying his TCQ moniker this season, his longtime nickname has always been simply "Q." Most people assume that it merely stands for the first letter in his last name. Clearly, I think otherwise. It's far too much of a coincidence for a guy named Q to unleash a breakout season without some creative assistance. Ever since I was a child, I admired Q's creativity. I mean, he's been providing ridiculous covert gizmos to James Bond and the research and development division of the British Secret Service since 1962. I'd have to think that if Q can somehow finagle a way to help 007 land on the Octopus Cult's island in "Octopussy," then swinging a baseball bat at the Major League level would be a walk in the park (see what I just did there?). And if Q can help The Actual James Bond in the final battle scene of "License to Kill", then maybe landing in the 2008 All-Star Game isn't such a reach after all.
