Don't quite understand all of the Kendrys bashing that has occurred this off season. On other sites, not this one, the virtual vitriol fumes and liquid are blinding, and enough has been lobbed in Kendrys' direction to melt him into an iBlob.
Kendrys switch-handedly became the most consistent and second best hitter on our team last year. He, Raul and Seager changed the grade on our offense from F- to C-. That is a huge accomplishment. Kendrys has no major weaknesses, is a real switch hitter, and can handle a whole season of DHing on a bad team without slumping. That's worth something. Kendrys is like a T-Bond, or a commodity like coffee or gold. He is as sure as bets can be, as in, if those things collapse, we will be close to living in Thunderdome society.
Every portfolio should have some securities like Kendrys. He is well rounded. Sometimes I worry that Zduriencik only wants to play penny stocks with usurious loans to third world countries, and flying car startups. Maybe its a good thing that he has trustee lawyer bosses to keep him from going all Lehman Brothers on us.
Bottom line: Sign Kendrys for 3X 30 while we're waiting around for something else to happen.
In order to improve on last year, we need to pencil in the production that made 2013 happen, and then add to it.
