His range isnt as
great as some, but nobodys better at hanging in on the double play.
I think hes a hell
of a nice guy. But you know, even if he isnt a nice guy, can he play?
Thats what I want to know. I like this guy as a ballplayer more than
anything. Good guys are great if they can play.
His emphasis is hustling
and playing hard, and he might make errors because he goes all out on every
play. I dont know anyone who stays in there longer on double plays.
Hes like an RBI machine.
He was always a dangerous hitter. But now hes a smart hitter.
As far as Im concerned,
you can build a team around Jeff. Hes that good. Hes the best
offensive second baseman I have ever seen.
Hes a great
mistake hitter, and a lot of those mistakes end up on the scoreboard.
He tries to beat you every
which way he can. There are guys who play baseball, and then there are
ballplayers. Jeff Kents a ballplayer.
don't think I've ever met a more confident individual than Jeff Kent.
