Quinn likes his carrot

"For five grinding years, we've tried to have some good-looking youth come into our organization," Quinn said. "It's starting to come and we want to make sure the carrot is there."

Yeah, he was talking about how they're going to only carry 22 players on the roster for most of the year.

That way the players in St. John's are motivated because there is a spot open on the big team...hence his weird carrot analogy.

I guess he's refering to dangling a carrot in front of a horse... I dunno, that was before my time.

I personally don't think it's a bad idea to carry only 22 players. One less player sitting out. When injuries hit, it's not that hard to call up someone from St. John's

Last year he got stuck without enough players because of this belief. Why can't he just carry enough people so if there is a pre game back out we have enough players.?

I really don't think that will happen twice. Quinn will run a much tighter team this year because he's no longer the boss so he has to watch him self.
