Released by the cardinals, is he worth a look over the trio of young guys? He might be able to lead off if we really needed...

NO. Younger not older

Yes, on an invite to compete for a job.

Agreed. No way it should be on a guaranteed contract, but the more competition the better as far as I'm concerned.

But unless he performs head and shoulders above anyone in spring training, I'd say we're better off giving the kids a shot.

No! Adam Kennedy will still be available in June if Getz, Lillibridge, Nix et. al fail miserably. Give the kids a chance.

I doubt that. He'll likely sign a minor league deal somewhere and make their squad.

He's awful. As my wife is huge Cardinals fan, I've watched a majority of the ABs and innings Kennedy played over the last 2 years in St. Louis. He's barely worth an invite to ST.

I'll take your word on it. What happened, age? He used to be a gamer.

No. It's obvious his best days are behind him. With all the young guys we have competing for the second base job, I don't see where we can put him. Besides, it would contradict the team's mentality of getting younger.

There's getting younger, and then there's getting younger for the sake of getting younger. You don't not invite veterans to compete with young guys in spring unless you're certain the young guys are studs.

To be honest, I'm not sure he was ever that good to begin with. A lot of people in STL raised eyebrows at the years/$$$ the Cards gave him 2 years ago.

As I Live in the the Stl. metro area, I concur.

I'd rather have Ray Durham back if we had to go that route, which we do not.

Tampa Bay just signed Kennedy to a minor league deal.
