Jason Kendall, Andrew McCutchen, And Exorcisms - Baseball Nation

677

Linking to this for three reasons: 1. read my other blog, dammit, 2. my well-documented Andrew McCutchen fetish, and 3. because it's a good way for the young-uns to recognize just how good Jason Kendall used to be. The latter is the relevant one for Giants fans, as Kendall has been brought up as a Posey comp since before the draft, and those comps got drunk and irritable and swingy after Posey also suffered a gruesome ankle injury. They aren't that similar -- Posey's natural power to center and right sets him apart from a lot of hitters -- but there are still some parallels. I think the important takeaways are that Jason Kendall was really good, and the baseball gods are sick ****s for making A.J. Pierzynski immortal instead of Kendall.
