I'd take Kendrick still over the three, I think he has a better track record in the minors, and can get that average up there past .310. He may steal a couple more than 12 also. Barfield wouldn't be in the same discussion of the two as far as upside IMO.
THe only thing Kendrick has over Kinsler is batting average.
Not so sure of that. The past two season's (including minors numbers) thier homerun rate has been very similar. Kinsler had 39 in 992 AB's and Kendrick 36 in 1026. Kendricks AVG, OBP, and SLG %'s have been alot better.
They both look like they could be 20/20 guys in 07 or 08...i'd then take the guy that could possibly hit .320 and have the higer OBP and SLG, and that is Kendrick.
