Is Jason Kendall still one of the top ten catchers

I think he is a very good defensive catcher, but ever since he left Pittsburgh he has been on a donw fall in hiiting. He had no home runs last year and batted under .300. Do u think he is going to make a comback?

I think he is close to the top 10. He's not a .270 hitter like he showed last year, but I still wouldn't expect any power.

btw - It is kinda hard for Kendall to be a good defensive catcher when his CS% was .179% last year.

He is on my "Do not draft" list.
I would probably take my chances with one of the rookie catchers, rathar then draft Kendall.

Excellent idea. I just did the same. There's something wrong in the universe when a starting AL catcher is outhomered by Kip Wells, Jason Schmidt, A.J. Burnett, Brad Hennessy, and Josh Beckett. That 0 in Kendall's HR column is as hideous as it is conspicuous. :-P

Don't forget Ray Sadler, Brandon Watson, and the amazingly still living pinch-hit wonder Lenny Harris ;-D

I don't have him top 10, but I would take him over a rook. And hopefully, nobody's drafting him for his power (been a while since he's had that).

If we excluded his horrid August, he batted .313 from June on (of course, that's excluding a horrid August). That's not too bad. What I'm more concerned about is whether he can squeeze out a few more Runs this season. He needs to be in the mid-80's (to compliment a .300+ average) to be valuable IMO. :-?

;-D If you are getting almost zero production out of your C position, why not take a chance on a young kid.

I am staying away from him. The zero HRs is one of the main reasons. Did I mentioned he hit zero Hr's last year.
