I thought that Kendall "Called a Great Game"

Since those in the know love talking about how so much of Jason Kendall's value is in 'calling a great game', I would like dispute that and connect it to Manny Parra's struggles.

 

Manny's struggles are well documented, but can they be attributed to Jason Kendall?

 

Manny has 16 starts.  14 of them have been caught by Jason Kendall.  2 by Mike Rivera.  Those two were his first two back from the minors after the all-star break.

 

In the 14 starts caught by Kendall,  Manny pitched 69.2 innings gave up 93 hits, 22 doubles and 10 home runs.  He walked 44 and struck out 58 for a SO/BB ratio of 1.32:1.  Opponents had a split of .320/.408/.512/.920

 

In the 2 starts caught by Mike Rivera, Manny pitched 13 innings gave up 8 hits, 2 doubles and no home runs.  He walked 4 and struck out  for a SO/BB ratio of 3.25:1.  Opponents had a split of .170/.235/.213/.448

 

Manny's first two starts back from AAA were caught by Mike Rivera, with his last start against Atlanta caught by Jason "calls a great game" Kendall.  His first two games back was the Manny Parra, we were all projecting him to pitch like.  On Friday, he regressed back to Manny 2009.

 

So since we have a large sample size of two starts, I think that I have definitively proven that Jason Kendall does not call a great game and that Manny's struggles are not Manny's fault, but they clearly rest on Jason Kendall's shoulders.
