The Bison, Resurgent.

File this one under "I told you so." Matt Kemp is healthier than he's been in years, he's tinkered with his batting stance, and he's still an exceptionally talented dude. It was just a matter of time until he hit; he hit the ball pretty damn well when he was marginally healthy in 2012 and 2013. Since June 1st, he's mashing to the tune of .308/.377/.504/...
