Dayn Perry on the A's

Check the link for the full text. I just put the 1st paragraph to fill the diary. Interesting take on Kendall. He even thinks he may never be the same player.

 This wasn't how things were supposed to be for the Oakland A's in 2005.

After the trades of Tim Hudson and Mark Mulder -- two-thirds of the "Big Three" that held sway in Oakland for almost half a decade -- many mainstream analysts predicted the demise of the A's. But the club under GM Billy Beane has made a habit of defying conventional expectations. So why should this season be any different?
Well, thus far it's been very different. Presently, the A's find themselves five games below .500 and four-and-a-half games behind the Angels in the AL West. To be sure, we're not even a quarter of the way through the season, and if recent history has taught us anything it's that the Green and Gold, more often than not, are strong finishers. Nevertheless, given the depth of their early struggles, A's fans may be wondering how likely things are to get better.
