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.

I wouldn't say he was top 10. As far as im concerned he doesnt have any upside. he wont hit you hrs, and while his average could be fairly good, why not take the risk of one of the younger guys and hope for the next victor martinez?

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.
