Sure, his batting average won't sniff .260, and his slugging percentage will be around .350 (edit: that number, apparently, was exceptionally generous, since Kendall's currently slugging .283), and he'll never ask out of a game, even when he's beaten up and could probably use a rest, but, if Kendall wasn't on the team, you wouldn't get quotes like this.
Asked what he said to Pirates Cunt-Nugget Supreme Jeff Karstens after Karstens got drilled to lead off the eighth inning and started barking at Chris Smith, Kendall responded:
"I just told him to go to first base or go to the pitcher," Kendall said. "It's baseball. There's no need to sit there and talk and this and that."
As David Bowie would say: that's Old School Rules right there, baby. Take your base, or go throw hands with the pitcher. I don't much give a fuck either way, but don't just stand here talking about it.
