While Javy Guerra was at fault for the single and giving up the bomb to the track, Matt Kemp sans alligator arms certainly would have helped him. Could have been worse though. Could have been Will Venable

Kemp Ties Club Home Run Record for April in Dodgers Loss

First the good news: Matt Kemp continued his amazing April with his 10th home run in the first month of the season, typing Gary Sheffield’s club record from April 2000. Sure, Kemp has made a few questionable decisions this season (he had a couple of base running and fielding issues last night), but the guy has been lights out at the plate and generally in the field, driving in...

Kemp makes history with ninth homer

Matt Kemp probably won't win his fourth consecutive National League Player of the Week award, but it certainly wasn't for lack of performance. Kemp has left no doubt in the early going that he is the best player in the National League.

Javy Guerra is pretty tough

Did you go to sleep before you saw this crazy comebacker by BMac that smacked Dodgers' closer Javy Guerra right in the kisser? How he stayed in the game, I don't understand... and neither did anyone else, from the announcers to other players. Javy Guerra is so precious… — jane (@inthecalzone) April 26, 2012 #Braves McCann said Guerra is his...

GIFcap: Dee Gordon Lays Out & Matt Kemp Almost Wins The Game

Dee Gordon is turning in highlight reel plays on defense on the regular, which just makes me wish he could do the simple things like catch and throw. Matt Kemp hit this mammoth shot to give the Dodgers a win to put the Dodgers ahead, but Javy Guerra surrendered three runs in the ninth and

Kemp, Ethier get help from rest of lineup

The first inning Monday night against Atlanta pretty much encapsulated the Dodgers' season to date. Dee Gordon singled to lead off the game, stole second base, and advanced to third on a flyball from Mark Ellis. Matt Kemp, he of the .460 batting average and nine home runs, was pitched to carefully and walked. Andre Ethier followed with a single, giving the Dodgers a 1-0 lead...

GIFcap: Javy Guerra Hit Flush In The Face By Brian McCann Liner

This was actually worse than I thought it was when I was listening to it, because they made it sound like it was a deflection off his glove, but it certainly looks to me like it caught him flush on the jaw. Say what you want about his pitching performance, but it’s amazing to me

Baltimore’s Nick Johnson has yet to get a hit this season

While Matt Kemp (.450 AVG), David Wright (.439 AVG), and David Ortiz (.436) are seemingly hitting everything that is thrown to them, Orioles DH Nick Johnson is having a rough go at it.Johnson has had 23 at bats and he has been unable to muster one single hit.  So of course he’s batting a meager .000.Just thought you would like to know that.Via ESPN’s Gamelog
