Jon Weisman Puts Jeff Kent in Perspective

And it's a better perspective than you would think. From Dodger Thoughts:

Jeff Kent, whose Dodger career began at age 37, is the greatest-hitting second baseman in Los Angeles Dodger history. [...]

If you go back to include Brooklyn days, only Jackie Robinson surpasses Kent offensively. [...]

Often he could seem as much a problem as a solution. But before he goes, understand that when it comes to second basemen, Los Angeles fans have not seen a hitter like Jeff Kent.
