A’s - Acquired Kennedy

Oakland A’s - Acquired 2B Adam Kennedy from the Tampa Bay Rays for future considerations.

Mr. Kennedy’s stock has fallen a great deal in the last couple of years.  Even a modest bounceback season in 2008 wasn’t enough to get Kennedy more than a starting job at AAA.  Kennedy hits left-handed and can play a little defense, enough to make him a usable role player, but it’s unlikely he’ll ever get much of a chance to start regularly again, save for injuries.

He better be an awesome fielder.

He's a better hitter than Petit, and I doubt Petit's any better in the field.

How long is Ellis supposed to be out?

The Rays got the injured Joe Dillon in return today.

Never underestimate the ability of the Washington Nationals to make a mockery of all your projections/predictions.

BTW, has a 2010 ZiPS projection for him been posted anywhere???

274/329/382 for Kennedy.
