Read this in the paper, and pray that Lamar isnt that stupid. This kid is what, like 25 or 26 and in his third season. Now given, he has been inconsistent, but the Rays threw him in as the number one starter in his second season. Let the kid mature a little. Worst off they want to trade him for some prospects. If this truly happens, I will never watch, read, or listen to anything having to do with the Rays again. How long does ownership expect us to wait for a competetive team? I mean whats next, trading Baldelli for prospects. AAARRRGGGHHH!!!!!!

I agree, and I believe he would be much more consistant with a better starting rotation pitching around him, preferably a veteran or two in the rotation.  They need to build around someone, this kid seems like a great start.

That's what has been bugging me about the D-rays.  They talk about building their team from there minor league teams then trade away the ones that actually have a shot at having a career.  It doesn't make any sense.  they shot the wad on over the hill vets and now keep putting up and coming rooks on the trading block.  I don't think Lou will allow this to happen to often if they want him to stay as coach.

How good do yall REALLY think Kennedy is gonna be?

Do you trade him now, when other teams think he has potential?

Do you trade him later, when he's nothing more than a proven #3-4 starter?

Do you keep him, and mold him to be your 3-4th starter?

drays should keep all young guys and build for future

so you lose for 3 straight years as long as you have a plan to go with youth you will be ok.

Actually I was wrong, Kennedy is 24. Even if he turns out to be a #3 or #4 starter, its better than a prospect who could turn out to be another Abernathy or Josh Hamilton. And if given time, Kennedy could turn out to be an ace. You have to start somewhere. Kennedy, Huff, Crawford and Baldelli make a nice core for the DRays to start. Im just hoping they dont throw that away.
