Isn't it amazing that he was at a JC in '99 and hitting 37 HR for the Cards in '01? --Just me 23:49, 30 July 2006 (EDT)
I totally agree. Not only is that unusual, but it's also interesting that the Cardinals were perceptive enough to see that he was ready. The history of baseball is full of guys who were kept back longer than they needed to be. There's probably a story about who insisted that he be given the chance. - Randy 00:28 a.m. 31 July, 2006 (EDT)
The reason he played early in his career is because of the ability he showed in High School, College, and the minors.
Lotta people showed ability but weren't brought up. Wade Boggs was held back, for example. The history of baseball is full of people who didn't get brought up and had great careers in the minors. - Randy 15:25 6 September 2006 (EDT
Am I the only one to surprised to see Nomar had held the record for quickest to 2000 TB? I would have guessed Ted Williams. --Just me 00:30, 21 November 2006 (EST)
Ted Williams missed 3 years in his 20's. Kinda killed the ability to compare him to anyone.
I'm not sure the Angels are convinced Kendrys can come back and play full time. If he can, he can take playing time away from Abreu or Wells. Although they'll also want to work Mike Trout in there. --Philippe 11:54, 8 December 2011 (EST)
