Post-Game 125 Thread: Cheaters Do Prosper, After All

Post-Game 125 Thread: Cheaters Do Prosper, After All

BREWERS 3, DODGERS 2 Liar and suspended steroid user Ryan Braun hit a two-run HR in the fourth inning to give the Brewers a 2-0 lead, a lead which they would not relinquish despite the Dodgers' clawbacks in the bottom of the fourth (Justin Turner RBI single) and a huge HR from Matt Kemp in the bottom of the ninth. Kemp's AB was a good battle and his decisive shot into left field was a rocket, and gave the Dodgers hope of a comeback. Unfortunately, Kemp couldn't do it alone, and with Dee Gordon continuing to regress with his ridiculous unsuccessful bunt single attempts (Gordon went...

Kemp has two hits, RBI in win over Brewers - Matt Kemp (OF) Los Angeles Dodgers

Matt Kemp went 2-for-5 with an RBI in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

Stock watch: Matt Kemp stepping up

RISING Matt Kemp, RF: Where did all this power come from? Kemp hit eight home runs in his first 98 games and he has hit six in his last nine games. Since the All-Star break, Kemp is batting .344 with a 1.097 OPS. It’s a good thing the Dodgers didn’t trade him. With Adrian Gonzalez slumping and Hanley Ramirez only sporadically productive, his hot hitting has given the Dodgers what little middle-of-the-order production they’ve been getting, which isn’t much.

Dodgers' Kemp takes stance against power outage

LOS ANGELES – Including his sixth-inning home run Sunday, Matt Kemp has five homers in his past 24 plate appearances after hitting five in his previous 350 trips to the plate. So Kemp is a slugger again, at least temporarily, and he’s clearly...

Power shortage over for Dodgers' Kemp

LOS ANGELES – Matt Kemp spent most of the last two years frustrated, he can admit now. The Dodgers right fielder had his once-prodigious power sapped by a variety of injuries. Now it’s starting to reappear, in the form of three homers in two...

Why is there no talk of Matt Kemp?

The Dodgers do expect to trade OF Matt Kemp before Thursday’s 4 pm non-waiver trade deadline, their GM said (LA Times, July 31). “No one’s ever heard me say we’re shopping Matt Kemp,” he said. “That’s all in another world.”   Matthew Cerrone: The Dodgers want to win now. They’ve invested A LOT of money in […]

Colletti Takes Two Slots of Top 10 "Worst MLB Contracts"

To be fair, the Rangers (Prince Fielder #1, and Shin-Soo Choo #5) and the Yankees (Alex Rodriguez #8, and CC Sabathia #9) also have two slots on the list. But the Dodgers are called out on two of Ned Colletti's deals: Matt Kemp (#7) and Carl Crawford (#10) (link insider only): 7. Matt Kemp, Los Angeles Dodgers (minus-$63 million) We talked a lot about Kemp last week, so there's no need to rehash the tale of Kemp's decline from superstar center fielder to Josh Willingham. Kemp can still contribute to a major league team, but if the Dodgers are expecting anything in return, they will have to...

Andre Ethier, Team Player

It's a minor point. But when I looked at the MLB.com wrap of the game tonight, it was pretty cool to see Andre Ethier--who had one plate appearance in three games in San Francisco, and didn't play a lick last night--front and center congratulating Matt Kemp on his game-winning hit. Ethier PH tonight and was 0-for-1 with 3 LOB. This is a two-time All-Star relegated to the bench in a crowded outfield not of his own making. He's a largely quiet and private guy (save the whole foodie blog thing) who has kept a relatively low profile, despite having a penchant for walk-off hits himself. He...

Post-Game 108 Thread: Bison Burgers

Post-Game 108 Thread: Bison Burgers

DODGERS 3, BRAVES 2 (10) My god, we should be talking about trading Matt Kemp every frickin' day. With Kemp's name swirling around (hopefully unfounded) rumors, the Bison went out and singlehandedly lifted the Dodgers to a second victory over the Braves, 3-2. Kemp singled home the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning, when Justin Turner led off the inning with a single to center, and then advanced on a wild pitch by David Hale. Kemp, who had already hit a solo HR in the bottom of the second to tie the game at 1, and then scored a second run in the eighth off a Juan Uribe single,...
