Matt Kemp drawing significant trade interest, could make way for Joc Pederson

The Los Angeles Dodgers are drawing significant trade interest in outfielder Matt Kemp, according to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman. Originally, the report was that the Dodgers would much rather keep Kemp over Carl Crawford and Andre Ethier. However, the 30-year-old may be the most likely to be dealt away. Kemp has five-years, $107-million remaining on his contract, which extends through...

Dodgers Rumors: Matt Kemp likely to be traded?

The Los Angeles Dodgers have a logjam in their outfield. They have been making it known that trading any one of Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, or Carl Crawford is very much in play. It was initially believed that the Dodgers preferred to trade Ethier or Crawford, or possibly both, but that may be changing as they field more calls on Kemp. #456813730 / Jon Heyman of...

Kemp to CLE? Big Ten Trophies, Thad’s Schedule and Dangerous Journalism: While We’re Waiting…

It’s Wednesday, and your boy is back. I spent last week in Orlando for a work conference. Let me just say there is nothing worse than landing at home after a week on the road on a Friday night at 9:45. I watched Thursday night’s Cleveland Browns from the road at a random bar and was surrounded by people cheering for the Browns. Everywhere you go, our fans are there in some way...

Could Sox Nab Kemp Even With Crowded OF?

(USAToday Photo)The Dodgers have let it be known that they are "aggressively" trying to thin out their crowded outfield—similar to the Red Sox. Of course, one of their expendable outfielders is Matt Kemp, a player Boston has lusted after before. If the Sox can clear out Yoenis Cespedes and one or two other outfielders in a trade, could they move some prospects to get...

The Return Of Matt Kemp’s Power, Briefly

The return of Matt Kemp‘s power has been one of the most fun stories of the second half of the season. After hitting just six home runs in 2013 and eight before this year’s all-star break, Kemp has added 16 more. His 24 home runs in 2014 are the most he’s hit since his 2011 should-have-been-MVP campaign. His offense still wasn’t bad before the recent hot streak, and we...

Los Angeles Dodgers are in the driver’s seat

Here’s a quote from my preview of the Los Angeles Dodgers series against the Cubs. Dodgers win three of four, Matt Kemp hits three home runs and Don Mattingly overmanages the bullpen in one of the games, leading to the loss. I’m going to go ahead and give myself two out of three. The Dodgers took care of business against the Cubs, winning three of four. Their loss came Saturday...

Los Angeles Dodgers clinch playoff birth

Thanks to Russell Martin and Jonathon Broxton, the Los Angeles Dodgers are heading back to the postseason. In an awesome coincidence, when former Dodger now Pittsburgh Pirate Russell Martin hit a game-winning three run home run against former Dodger now Milwaukee Brewer Jonathon Broxton, the Dodgers clinched at worst the second NL Wild Card spot. Dodger players don’t seem too...

Matt Kemp’s Offense Is Not The Problem

There is no player more polarizing on the Dodgers than Matt Kemp. Recently, as Kemp trade rumors have (predictably) started to get louder, there have been a large variety of reactions. There’s one thing that comes up frequently in our comment section, on twitter, and around the internet which I want to address, though. You can say all you want about Kemp’s defense, but Matt Kemp’s offense...

Report: Multiple teams talking with Dodgers about Matt Kemp

The Los Angeles Dodgers are in the midst of a pennant chase and that is obviously the franchise’s top priority. But ranking just below the team’s quest for a World Series title is somehow solving its logjam in the outfield.
