Carlos quickly became a fan favorite in 2008 when he had an MVP type season for most of the year. If not for a late season injury I think that he would have had the award in the bag. The injury was self inflicted though so you can’t feel too bad for him. He has fought through injuries since, but has been a productive outfielder when he has been healthy.
This picture was taken on Opening Day this season when Carlos was sliding in second with a double. He later scored on a Paul Konerko home run.
