Plaschke, Thy Sweater Is Argyle:
I completed my sixth trade with Cam of Cardboard Heaven fame. You can check out the first here, second here, third here, fourth here, and fifth here. Cam was in possession of a Matt Kemp card I wanted to get my hands on, and as time went along we expanded the deal into another epic trade.Let's start with something my collection was lacking: a Zack Greinke autograph. It hails from 2007 Fleer Ultra "Ultra Graphs" and is numbered 120/199. Whenever he gets himself a Dodgers' signature or two, I'll be looking to add one, but for now one of him as a Royal will work just fine.The original card that started our trade talks. It's the phenomenal "Out Of Bounds" SP of The Bison from 2013 Topps and I'm really happy I didn't buy one from eBay to placate my desire to acquire it. What a shot of Matty.A Greinke Gold RC to go with my new John Hancock. I already have the regular base chrome version of this 2002 Bowman rookie (acquired from Dennis) so I was ...

Matt Kemp's generosity has touched many in the baseball world.
Kemp, who recently gave a sick fan not only an autographed baseball but his game jersey, hat and cleats, was beyond moved when he came into contact with Joshua Jones, a 19-year-old from Tracy, Calif., suffering from inoperable tumors in his spine and has been given 90 days to live.
I said hi to him, he just looked...
The Los Angeles Dodgers visited AT&T Park for a series against the San Francisco Giants over the weekend, and Matt Kemp made the most of his cross-state trip. The All-Star outfielder went 4-for-14 at the plate with two RBI and two runs scored, but what we’re talking about has nothing to do with baseball.
As you can see from the video that Vin Scully is My Homeboy passed along ...

Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp is a superstar and it has nothing to do with his play on the field. It has nothing to do with his ridiculous 2011 when he tallied 39 jacks, 126 RBIs, 40 stolen bases and hit .324.
On Sunday night at AT&T Park in San Francisco, Joshua Jones, and...
Matt Kemp became an Internet sensation after an impromptu gesture he made toward a cancer-stricken Dodgers fan attending a game at San Francisco's AT&T Park.

Matt Kemp made a young man’s night yesterday, and if this video doesn’t make you smile I’m not sure what will. Check out Matt giving this young man who “is fighting a tough battle” a signed ball along with his jersey and even shoes. Just awesome.
The YouTube description reads:
Matt Kemp is such a great person. He came over after the game and made one of my best friends...
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp did a wonderful thing for a dying boy in San Francisco on Monday.
On Monday, Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach informed Kemp that there was a young man in attendance at AT&T Park that is a huge Dodgers fan.
He also happens to list Kemp as his favorite player.
The horrible thing is that he is dying and that he cannot speak.
An autograph wasn't enough.

From a fantasy perspective I--like many guys out there--have always been a fan of Matt Kemp (sorry man, I'm an Astros and Rangers fan). However, after watching this clip of what he did during last weekend's Dodgers/Giants series Matt Kemp will forever be one of my favorite players.
In case you didn't feel like watching the video, it appears as if someone has told...

Network cameras weren’t around, just someone on a smart phone recording from a few seats over. While no one was paying attention Dodgers’ star Matt Kemp went out of his way to make a fan’s day.
In an age of super egos inflating with each $100 million contract thrown their way, it’s rare to see big name baseball players interact with fans.
Joshua Jones and his father...
One lucky Dodgers fan had a night he will never forget on Monday.
Tweet Stories like this are what make sports blogging rewarding.
