MATT KEMP RUMORS & GOSSIP

Dodgers-Cardinals rivalry makes for good postseason series

A rivalry is being renewed this week as the Dodgers and Cardinals square off in the playoffs again, this time in the NLDS. This series has swagger. A healthy Matt Kemp makes for a heartier Dodgers lineup than one year ago. Dee Gordon is leading off for the Dodgers this season, and posing a real threat on the bases with 64 stolen bases, and Clayton Kershaw is coming off a monster...

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...

Dodgers 8, Cubs 5: Matt Kemp saves the bullpen game

No starting pitcher, no problem … ish. The Dodgers much-maligned bullpen came through — kinda — in Sunday’s 8-5 victory in Chicago. The Dodgers took three of the four games in the series after a terrible collapse yesterday. But the real story of this game was Matt Kemp, who went 4-for-5 with a 2-run home run and four RBIs. Kemp continued his really strong second half, which...

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...

It’s Good To Have You Back, Matt Kemp

Here’s two notable players having basically the exact same season: G PA HR RBI SB BB% K% AVG OBP SLG wRC+ 136 564 19 66 10 9.20% 18.40% 0.275 0.353 0.452 127 132 525 19 68 8 9.30% 25.00% 0.282 0.347 0.484 134 One strikes out a bit more, but he hits for more power to make up for it.

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...
