MATT KEMP RUMORS & GOSSIP

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...

Dodger players don’t seem too...

Matt Kemp & Yasiel Puig Have Dugout Beef

Just a few weeks before the playoffs start two of the Dodgers stars seem to be having a rift. On Monday night, when teammates Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig should’ve just been celebrating an eight-run inning, Kemp and Puig had dugout beef. Kemp followed Puig across the Dodgers dugout in the decisive sixth inning of the Dodgers’ 11-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies, with Puig occasionally...

Dodgers Teammates Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig Exchange Words In Dugout (Video)

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielders Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig exchanged words in the dugout Monday night, and it’s unlikely those were friendly words. Kemp sought out Puig in the Los Angeles dugout during the Dodgers’ eventual 11-3 win over the Colorado Rockies. From there, it was the veteran outfielder who was doing most of the talking even as most of their teammates were celebrating...

Matt Kemp’s Great and Terrible Year

Matt Kemp has had a terrible season. He’s been worth only 0.9 WAR — close enough within the margin of error to refer to him as a “replacement-level player” — and he’s being paid $21 million to do it. He was so awful in center field that the Dodgers removed him from the spot in late […]
