I apologize but i could not find a thread on Kendrick 2007 predictions. If you have a link that would be great. If not what is everyone's thoughts on Kendrick for the season? an average hitter, power, speed?

I think he will hit for .300 or .320 range with about 10 SB and about 80 runs and 80 Rbi, not bad from a 2B. Oh I also think he will hit 15 HR as well.

He's def. a guy you will be able to count on hitting .300 every year. This year there is a possibility he won't, but he will hit right around there. He also has the potential to hit 20 hrs and drive in 90 IMO.

I liked him as a .300/15/15 guy heading into the season, but after a nice start, he's really struggled since that HBP that put him on the DL. He's 10 for his last 29, so let's hope that's the start of a nice hot streak for him.

Its tough to say with Kendrick. He was well on his to taking over that coveted #1 spot in the batting order before he got injured. But now he has to earn that all over again. With Chone batting something like .600 over the last 3 weeks, and Willets pretty well entrenched its going to take a monster hot streak, and a couple of major slumps to get him back in that 1-2 spot.

I still think a .300BA is by no means a stretch; the remaining stats are going to swing wildly based on whether he winds up batting infront of Vlad and Mattews or infront of Molina and Hillenbrand
If you found my advice helpful, please help me

i doubt kendrick will ever lead off... he doesn't have a very high obp. willits seems more suited for the position, especially since he also steals more.
