Estrada had 112 less abats. Now they have about the same average and Kendal has 30 more runs and 11 more steals and Estrada has 20 more RBI's. Now in 112 at bats I think Estrada could improve his stats enough to get equal if not better than Kendall since all he has to do is close a gap of 30 runs and 11 steals - 20 RBI's and 6 homers in 100+ at bats.

You forgot to include the boost in Kendall's numbers that should come with going to a more potent A's lineup this season.

Well with the Bucs Bay was the only other hitter than was worth anything. He will be surrounded by a much better cast. Whether you think that A's lineup is good or not is irrelevant. He will have much more chances to score and drive in runs.

Estrada is a decent hitting catcher. However, he is not even close being the hitter that Kendall is. Estrada has slightly more power but that is not saying much at all.
