Matt Kemp throws at dunk tank on Ellen

Matt Kemp took some time out of his young offseason to appear on Ellen Thursday to support breast cancer awareness. He was given the chance to dunk one of his fans in a dunk tank. It took him four tries. But in fairness to him, he was throwing softballs. I'm thinking he just wanted the girl to sit on the perch a little longer.

Might A Radical Trade Involving Cole Hamels & Matt Kemp Be The Answer?

I am a big Cole Hamels fan. He’s probably been the most consistent Phillies pitcher over the last 3 years, he’s the youngest ace, and he’s got an incredibly bright future. But…the Phillies are in win-right-now mode, as the core of Chase Utley, Ryan Howard, Shane Victornio, etc., only have a couple more [...]
