OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: Kendall.... again
this is actually getting quite old.
yep ignore trolls. if you ignore them eventually they'll go away b/c they get a rise out of bugging people. if there's no one to bug, then there's no fun in trolling.
good to know.
What are you people talking about trolls? I see no Trolls (wink wink)
I do really like what he has done with the very young pitchers, but just wonder why Ken Macha continues to bat him so high up in the order.
he's been hot lately. the key is that we need a basestealer (lol) hitting in front of him. kendall's a decent guy to have at bat when you have a runner on 2nd b/c he can advance the runner. when you have a guy at 1st, then Kendall's a DP risk.
What are everyone's thoughts on Marco? I love what he's done for the A's the past couple of years, but the guy is batting .180 since the break. I would rather have Ginter out there.
double play ground out to help a struggling picture out of the first inning nice job.
Kendell is clutch I don't know why we complain about him. Base knock for a 2 out run and then throw'n people out.
wow 1st and 2nd none out, and no runs.
let's not forget ellis's dp's either.
Marco's D is much better than Ginter's. I'd take Scooter any day of the week over Ginter
Kendall GIDP again. Leads or is close to leading the league. The new Ben Grief
Actually, Kendall now LEADS the league in GIDP with 23, passing Miguel Tejada.
It's is absolutely crazy idiotic to have him batting 2nd with the way that Ellis is hitting. It's probably going to mess up Ellis' game because he is going to swing for doubles and homers just to stay out of the automatic double play. I am not a Macha hater but if Macha can't see to move Kendall out of the 2-hole he is indeed an idiot.
AN indicated that kendall has 22 dps and 23 extra base hits. this is poor baseball management (BB and Macha) to have this dude batting 2nd. sactofan's on point.
In his last year with the A's Ben Grief had 32 gidp's but also hit 27hr, 40 doubles and had 104 rbi.
Agreed. I love what kendall does behind the plate and I think he's been a great hitter throughout his career. BUT right now, he's not getting it done and since Ellis is getting on base alot recently, the dp's by kendall are killing us.
Check this out...Kendall's Slugging % is thirty points BELOW his on-base percentage. I thought that sounded weird, so I tried to find another player whose slg % is less than his obp and couldn't find one. Is there another player like that? Has there EVER been a player who's done that?
Enzo Hernandez was a semi-regular shortstop for the Padres for six years in the '70's and his slugging percentage was below his OBP every four out of the six years (the other two years were super close)......
Ray Oyler was a SS with the Tigers in the '60's and had a SLG% lower than his OBP for three consecutive seasons, including Detroit's World Series Champ team in 1968.
Other than taking the lead in GIDP, has anyone noticed that so far this month Kendall is batting .313 and OPS is .752
Nobody wants to win more than kendall, I can tell you that.
Al Davis wants to win more than Kendall, and has had relatively similar results in recent years.
by the end of the year i wouldn't be surprised if kendall was only a couple of points behind chavy, or even ahead in ba.... take it how you want, but I don't think it's a good thing for either player.
Jesus me! Another double play in the first inning. Unbelievable.
