Prospect: Jason Kendall

Sounds odd, and it is.  A short "retro prospect" write up on Jason Kendall by John Sickels at: http://www.minorleagueball.com/story/2005/7/10/18210/2210

Two things I thought were funny: Kendall had a bad rep for not being great at throwing out runners and the comparables including Sanguillen (a TOTALLY different approach at the plate) and Cochrane (pretty heady company). I think it'd be hard to find anyone who would disagree now that Kendall has been a great addition to the club (starting from his terrific handling of the young staff to his current run of great OBP). Not a homer in sight, though, and the slugging percentage is truly on the low side. And oh yes, he's a bit pricey, but does taking on his contract along with the resigning of Kotsay signal of a new era in A's baseball where they can pay some more competitive prices for worthy talent?
