As Adam Kennedy reaches 30 there is a whirling dervish of a hitter named Howie Kendrick nipping at his heels. Some will tell you that the Angels will be looking to move Kennedy come midseason to make way for Kendrick, and clearly AL only players should worry about such a thing. Kendrick brings a very tough approach to the plate, and he has an impressive swing, but he’s probably not ready for the majors now, and the usually conservative Angels are likely to wait rather than push aside a regular in midseason.
This wouldn’t matter if Kennedy was going for full price, but if he’s discounted because of this talk, jump all over him. Howie Kendrick would. I think.
