Chris Carter vs Chris Carter

The Sox Carter seems to get all of the press, but the Diamondbacks Carter is quietly having a great year repeating AAA at Tucson.

Deric McKamey at Baseball HQ really likes Carter's (Arizona) bat, and figures that some AL team should trade for him and give him a shot.  He thinks he could be a Travis Hafner lite.

He has the following line playing 1B (badly) for Tucson

0.339/0.399/0.531 with 12 homers and 34 doubles.

Looks like Connor Jackson is being shopped, so maybe Carter will get a shot later this year.

The Sox Carter is younger and obviously is the better prospect at this point, but I think the other Chris Carter shouldn't be totally overlooked.
