  • Jeff Kent is a Survivor

    Jeff Kent is on the new Survivor Series as a contestant for $1,000,000. The trouble so far for him is a woman recognized him, and older players don't tend to last very long. Once the woman spreads the word about who he is many will vote him out based on his huge salaries.

    One plus for him is he is a rancher and familiar with the outdoors. Another plus is knowing how to play with teammates of varying abilities. I hope he gets to play for awhile.

      She said she left home at age 12 to be a mouseketeer. Describing herself as introverted and shy, most of us remember her as warm and bubbly on the TV show she was on.

      I'm waiting for Jeff's big moment during a throwing challenge.

        So far Jeff Kent seems to be playing fairly well. Apparently he has been a big fan of the show for many years. He appears to have a good sense of the proper strategies necessary to do well at Survivor. I hope he wins.

        Having a multi-millionaire win the million dollars would be a slap in the face to the people who want to vote off people just because they already have money.
        Holding a pitcher accountable for how many runs his team scores is like holding the designated hitter accountable for how many runs his team allows.

        An individual statistic is meaningful only if it is based strictly on what the player does and not on what the other players on his team do.

        Contrary to what most baseball fans claim, a pitched ball which is hit into play is not a strike.

          Jeff Kent is on there too? I guess I must have been distracted by former Miss Teen Utah.

            It brings a new meaning to the term putout.

              Jeff introduced the "four-finger handshake" to his Survivor teammates this week. Apparently using one less finger means your gentlemanly handshake is non-binding, and you are free to backstab someone if you like. I must have missed this rule in the Little League Handbook.

              We'll see how he does now that his teammate has the idol.

                Jeff Kent is no longer a Survivor. I thought he did well in the challenges particularly one involving catching. Only one other player knew who he was.

                Maybe he plans on making a comeback in MLB?

                  I can't wait to hear what the folks on KNBR have to say about his exit tomorrow.

                    Thanks for sharing it Biz. It's a long interview. Interesting he never mentioned the other Survivors by name. I sense he thought he had a good chance to make the final three. I wonder who the spoiled brats he played with in the ML's were?

                      I think we know who at least one of them was.

                        Jeff Kent was so obsessed with voting out Penner. Karma.
                        Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

                        If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.

                          I was hoping that Kent would eventually battle Barry Bonds (in a guest appearance) in an immunity challenge. Of course, I was also pining for a guest appearance from Tootie.

                            He sounded like a jerk on his farewell speech. He had to make sure he threw in that he's already made 60 million dollars but he wanted to win another million.

And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)

                              You're missing the point of the million dollar prize. Because Jeff Kent has made so much playing baseball, it is obvious he's not playing Survivor for the money, but for the experience. If you listen to his interviews about Survivor, you can tell he's a big fan of the game. For a very good interview with Jeff Kent, go to http://www.cbs.com/shows/survivor/vi...how-ft-parvati
                              skip forward to the 15:00 minute mark.
