If/when Kendall goes to Oakland...

I agree also although I am worried that he won't get those 10 or so SBs in Oakland.

Even without the SB's I still think he's could still be one of the better catchers.

Hatteberg?

Postby Fire-Rescue-Diver » Mon Nov 29, 2004 3:08 pm

Curious as to why Hatteberg isn't put back behind the dish. He was a catcher for the Red Sox before going to Oakland. Was there a reason they took him from behind the plate?

He had an arm injury that limited him as a catcher.

Let's assume that he hits 1 or 2 in that lineup. Could we check how hitters in those spots have performed SB wise over the last 6 or 7 years? I think that those who had the ability to steal bases Jere,y Giambi excluded, stole their fair share. Could we run a check?

What I am worried about is that his SB% went down the toilet last year. So does Oakland let him run? As for checking we could do that if we knew who batted 1-2 for Oakland the last 6 years. I'm not sure where to find old lineups but maybe someone could help out there.

11/19 is not much different from 8/15 and 15/23 the previous two years. I definitely think he gets his 10-15 if he gets 550 AB's.

Though I like the expression down the toilet, it doesnt really apply here. To paraphrase a wise Mets man, "your argument went down the toilet." :-b :-b

Stealing below 60% I don't think he'll get many chances to steal, especially if he's at the top of their lineup. He'll have his usual good BA and score a bunch of runs though.

If the likes of Eric Chavez and Miguel Tejada can get double digits or close to it in Oakland, I don't think double digits for Kendall is out of the question.

I'll admit I didn't realize his SB% has been this bad since 2000 but let me rephrase this: With an SB% that bad do you think Oakland will let him steal?

I agree with Jackal and that was mainly what I was getting at.
