MMO Mailbag: Adding A Big Power Bat This Offseason

Stephen H. asks… Joe, why are you always so against the Mets adding a big power hitter in the outfield? This team needs to score a lot more runs and a Matt Kemp,  Jose Bautista or a Nelson Cruz could be the one piece this team needs to get us into the postseason. Imagine if we had one of them this season instead of Chris Young who was a complete waste of money? I usually agree...

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.

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...
