Remember the story about Ken Macha not wanting Yovani Gallardo to pitch on Opening Day because he wanted to reduce the pressure on Gallardo?
Jason Kendall apparently didn't get the memo.
Check out his quote in this feature on Gallardo:
"Nobody is going to replace [Sabathia and Sheets]. That's important for everybody to remember," said Kendall. "But this kid is going to be really, really good. ... He could be a 15-20 game winner for a long time in this league.
"In fact, I don't see how he can't win a Cy [Young Award]. He's that good. There's a ton of potential there."
Funny. Now I don't catch Gallardo, but I can see lots of scenarios in which Gallardo doesn't win a Cy Young award.
This isn't quite on par with the Yost/Bill Hall MVP prediction, but it's close.
