In the late-90's this may have been true, when he was pushing a near if not surpassing a .400 OBP with regularity and stealing 20+ bases. Coming off a year with a .301 OBP and 3 SB to 4 CS, I can't see anybody thinking that the past three seasons have been anything other than a declining trend that should continue.

I agree. People's perceptions seem to be skewed on Kendall. He was BP's poster boy for biggest decline in 2006.

Still, Kendall was much better with the Cubs than with the As. The cubs acquired him on July 16, and his numbers were dramatically better in the NL. The Brewers might be able to squeeze 260/350/350 out of him. Plus I doubt he tries to punch Ned Yost.

I don't think he's great just "not bad" he's a veteran and I'd rather have him I think then Estrada

Uhh..... this wouldn't be the SAME Jason Kendall about whom the Brewers fans were mocking the Cubs fans right here in this very forum when the Cubbies signed him in 2007, would it?

I'm sure it's that OTHER Jason Kendall, not the one they were mocking so, SO much back then.

Right? :-D

I wasn't a fan then, I'm not a fan now. But there is a difference between the two situations -- A) Chicago had to give to get (AKA it was a trade, not a FA move), and much more importantly B) I felt Chicago had a superior option already in house with Soto. Turns out I was right, and now all the Cub fans I know can't stop gushing about Soto.

The Brewers have no such option in waiting, their best catching prospects are Angel Salome (finished the year amidst a 50 game suspension), and Jonathan Lucroy, who was drafted just last year. Their most advanced prospect in the system is Lou Palmisano, and he profiles most likely as a backup catcher, at best. The bulk of my criticism for the Cubs was based upon the fact they already had better in their system and were too afraid to turn it over to him. Don't get me wrong, I'm no fan of Kendall, but I'm no fan of Estrada either. It's more or less a parallel move that has me saying "eh, whatever, at least he could score from 2nd on a single (unlike Estrada)."

I'm just busting chops, guys. He'll be fine for you. He isn't a great bat, but like I said when the Cubs picked him up - he's a good presence in the clubhouse and he's a benefit to your pitching staff.

You could do lots worse. ;-)
