Defensively, Kendrick is a downgrade. Offensively, he has great potential. Monetarilry, he is very affordable at this point. Overall, he is a worthy gamble.
Izturis is a free agent after next year, but why would he necessarily be priced out of Cincinnati? Would he command greater than Phillips-type money?
