I traded Berkman at $27 for Kent at $15 this offseason so I'm feeling the burn.

It seems like last year his stats were "padded" with a red-hot start, if you believe in that kinda thing. Hopefully his red-hot streak is still coming. Couldn't hurt to have Nomar back.

Kent didn't drop off much in the 2nd-half last year:

Pre-All Star: 309 ab, 51 r, 15 hr, 60 rbi, 4 sb, .304/.381/.515
Post-All Star: 244 ab, 44 r, 14 hr, 45 rbi, 2 sb, .270/.371/.508

His runs and RBI were lower, but he had 65 fewer at-bats.

He had a great April (1.100 OPS), a weak May (.571), a great June (1.059), then settled in and was fairly consistent from July through the end of the year.

I think the beaning to the noggin could be a factor. After Hafner got conked in the cabeza last season, he hit the DL and was slow to get going again after he came off the DL.

I'm not worried about Kent yet.
