Hey don`t get me wrong I'm not defending Kennedy`s HORRIBLE year last year, that's what happens when players play hurt...
Also Miles played WAY too much last year it was ridiculous....
Just wonderin. I didn't realize he was horrid in the field. Is that the general consensus?
He is a very average fielder at 2nd but he is horrid at SS and at 3rd he can barely get the ball to first.....
If Albert didn't pick balls in the dirt better then anyone I have seen then Miles would have had a lot more errors....
Mozeliak signed Miles a few days ago to be a utility player.......
If he is a bench player who plays 2nd that's fine but please please don`t let him play another position!!!!
Also signing Miles means Brendan Ryan goes to AAA for the year unless he has an awesome spring.
Ryan can do the job much better then Miles and a million dollars cheaper.
Ryan can play a decent 3rd, a good SS and a good 2nd also its a small sample size but from what we have seen he hits much better then Miles.
He hits for average, at least twice in his career. .290 last year to Kennedy's .219
They both have around the same career averages Miles is .283AVG and Kennedy has a .275AVG but take into account Kennedy has over twice as many at bats then Miles.
If Kennedy is healthy he is better in every way over Miles.
Kennedy is plain and simple a better run producer then Miles(if healthy) and a better fielder(even if hurt).
I just checked their stats, and Kennedy's doubles output isn't a whole lot better than Miles'.
If you look at their year-to-year stats Kennedy`s double total is much more impressive. Miles only had 20 doubles once in his career Kennedy did that 6 times in his career.
Adam had 26 doubles in '06 but last year his knee injury kept him from hitting and hopefully he has recovered after his surgery.....
granted, I'm not a season ticket holder so I didn't get to see Miles day in day out or anything. I only can judge by what I did see on TV and a FEW games last year.
I literally don`t have a life lol I watch almost every Cardinal game.....lol I know much MUCH more about the Cardinals then I do the Blues.
