Lester-Kemp not likely

Though Jon Lester could well be traded by Thursday’s non-waiver trade deadline, two sources told MLB.com that the Red Sox are not interested in acquiring Matt Kemp from the Dodgers in exchange for the lefty, contrary to a rumor that surfaced Sunday. In fact, there has yet to be a lot of dialogue between the […]

Trading Jon Lester for Matt Kemp doesn't make sense

Trading Matt Kemp makes sense. Trading Jon Lester makes sense. But for each other? The Red Sox could use Matt Kemp in their outfield. Not necessarily in 2014, where Boston isn't competing for a playoff spot any longer, but in the future where Kemp is still under contract. The Dodgers could use Jon Lester, and they could use him right now as they're in first place in the NL West, percentage points away from the Senior Circuit's best record: who better to add to a playoff rotation than a pitcher with Lester's history of postseason dominance? Just because these individual ideas make sense does...

On Keeping Kemp

Lots of rumors swirling about Matt Kemp being traded, potentially to the Red Sox. However, Mark Saxon tries to quell the noise: The only impetus for trading Matt Kemp at the moment is to free up whatever money the Dodgers could and to alleviate whatever rift exists between him and the coaching staff. The outfield situation is as good as it has been all season. Kemp has looked comfortable playing right field, his original position, and he has been productive at the plate. In his past 16 games, he is batting .370. He's now batting .277 on the season with an above-average .775 OPS. I for one...

Daily Red Sox Links: Jon Lester, Jake Peavy, Matt Kemp

Today's links focus on the implications of the trade deadline. Teams would be willing to pay Boston more if Jon Lester would sign an extension after the trade, but he says that is unlikely. (Alex Speier; WEEI.com) Felix Doubront hasn't been talked about too much since moving to the bullpen, but he's doing everything he can to get traded this week.

Red Sox trade rumors: Matt Kemp a target for Boston? (Just say no)

The Red Sox are considering trading for Matt Kemp because apparently negative-value players are all the rage these days. The Red Sox have been mulling over a trade for Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp according to Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston. A few years ago, when Kemp was a superstar, this would have been exciting news. Now, however, it's more concerning than anything else. Kemp, who's a couple months shy of 30, has undergone multiple surgeries over the last two years, leaving him absent for much of 2013, and far less productive than in his peak years of 2011-2012. When Kemp was at his best,...

Source: Sox consider trade for Matt Kemp

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- He has had debilitating ankle and shoulder injuries that have limited his play the last two seasons, is still owed roughly $118 million on a contract that runs through 2019, and has a mixed reputation as a clubhouse presence, but the Red Sox are considering making a move for Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, according to a club source. With the Sox in need of more offensive production in the outfield, the right-handed hitting Kemp could be the major piece in a trade for Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester, especially with the Dodgers reluctant to part with top outfield...

Mariners rumors: M's view Matt Kemp as a backup plan, deal could be a disaster

Jeff Passan reports that the Mariners are still into Matt Kemp. It's a horrible idea at just about any realistic cost. Only five days remain until the trade deadline, and with the Rays going for the 10th straight win today, the Mariners seem more likely to battle them for a wild card spot than to purchase their best players before the trade deadline. This has apparently led to the Mariners shopping around for backup plans, which now inexplicably includes Matt Kemp. Right now, Matt Kemp is a backup plan for the Mariners. But their interest is very real. Idea would be to transition him to...

Will Fenway Be Matt Kemp's Next Destination?

(ESPN Photo)The LA rumor mill is extra stoked today and the object of everyone's speculation is outfielder Matt Kemp. According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, the Dodgers are "making calls, and rival executives have the feeling the Dodgers are ready to move on." Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe (AKA John Henry's Journalistic Plaything) suggested last Sunday that the Red Sox were one of the teams "intrigued" by Kemp. So, as Thursday's deadline nears, keep an eye out for the possibility of another big deal with denizens of Chavez Ravine.
