RT @Dodgers: Don Mattingly: Matt Kemp felt some tightness in his right hamstring and will slow down his rehab.

What kind of value does Matt Kemp hold on the market these days? What could we potentially get for him?

Kemp is done this year, they should have just shut him down a while ago.  

 

What a waste of $20 million a year, truly a pathetic start to that epic contract Kemper signed...

It's the risk you run when you give big contracts to players.  Let's not act like Kemp is the first player in the history of sports to be in a situation like this. 

 

Shut him down for the season, bring him back next year healthy (hopefully).  The team is playing great without him so might be a blessing in disguise so you don't have any awkward feelings once the playoffs start.  

 

Hey MAYBE if we can get to the World Series, we can have Kemp as a DH.  But for now, lets roll with what we got. 

 

Oh and Kemp isn't going anywhere.  I'm not going to sit here and act like Kemp has been injury riddled his entire career.  From 2008-2011, he played in 155 or more games each season. The last two years have been nightmares for Kemp but for someone that will be 29 years old in two weeks, he has some good baseball ahead of him. 

 

IF you want to trade Kemp, there's no issues in doing so as in Kemp not having a no-trade clause.  You can still get great value for Kemp.  But like I said, he's not going anywhere.

Any updates on Billingsley & Beckett? What are they up to these days other than stealing milions

 

To be fair,there's no reason a pro athlete should be paid millions to  play a freaking sport

I don't want to go rid of Kemp, he's still out best outfielder and a top 5 outfielder in the league. Not to mention that it takes at least a year and a half for shoulder surgery heal up. Look at Hanley and Gonzalez for examples when it comes to the procedure. I'm not ready to give up on Kemp, especially with him being a home grown talent.

What a terrible call, Hanley was clearly safe on that steal.

He went out due to injury. Mattingly wasn't gonna' sit him so the injury bug decided to do it for him.

 

West Coast was on the money about how Fife's been recently though as it showed again today.

 

Looks like Gonzo's sadly in a slump. Our usually most productive RBI man seemingly has gone cold.

 

Michael Young was only able to pinch hit, but he got yet another hit, continuing that hot streak maybe putting pressure on Uribe? Yes? No?

 

Paco struggled.

 

Withrow looked incredible.

 

Brian Wilson continues pitching perfect no run ball with that unmarked ERA. You gotta' think this run for him will end at some point.

 

Chapman seems almost impossible to hit.

 

Dodgers lose consecutive games. When's the last time that happened?

 

Coincidence that it happened when Volquez & Capuano pitched?


yo.

Gonzo is in a slump but he'll break out of it. Every player goes through it, as long as he's right for the playoffs is what I care about.

 

Michael Young will stay in his role off the bench. Uribe is the better defensive player so he'll stay on the field. 

 

Paco struggled.  Not worried about him though.  Withrow is a stud.

 

Wilson is pitching well.  He'll won't keep that 0.00 ERA (at least I don't think he will) but he'll continue to be solid for us going into the playoffs. 

 

Chapman is deadly.  You cannot fall behind the Reds with him waiting to close you out. 

 

Dodgers lost consecutive games at the end of August to the Red Sox. 

 

And no, I knew it would happen (although Capuano was pitching well before he got hurt so can't blame him too much). 

 

 

The way I see it, we lost two straight but still lead by 12 games with 22 games to go.  We need to get healthy and play good baseball at the end of September, in baseball it's always about the hottest team entering the post-season, records and seeds go out the window.

Oh yes, how could I forget? Probably because I chose to since that series had me so pissed. Even now I still can't entirely get over it. It's not often you face a storied team like that, much less in your own home and yet you don't know throw out your absolute best pitchers out there. I don't care for the excuses. The "risk" is overrated. I think you can get away with it for at least just one special series that doesn't come along too often. Instead, effin' Boston got the bragging rights on us.

Him being the best outfielder on the Dodgers is highly debatable...
