I think it's crazy dropping Gomes for Kemp but I hope I'm wrong....just seems odd to make that move.

But I like your style...roll the dice! ;-D

Damn....I'm a Kemp fan, but dropping Gomes for him seems like a bit much. Kemp isn't even assured playing time.

l dropped Lo Duca for Kemp (McCann coming back) and Byrnes for Thames...

Dropping a proven player, that starts every day is dumb... Kemp will most likely get sent down once Repko comes back.

Thames may get a bit more playing time, but when Dmitri comes back, it will get cut down even further.

No way does Kemp lose his job because of the return of Repko...Repko wasn't a starter before his injury, and he certainly wont starter afterwards.

If Kemp gets sent down, it will be because of the return of a mass of players, not just one. Although, at this point, I dont think the Dodgers can justify sending down their best hitter at the moment over the likes of Either, Aybar, Repko, Guzman. And they certainly cannot justify starting Cruz over anyone at this point.

Who has better upside?

Drop Botts for Kemp? Rotoworld says Kemp can't hit a slider or curve.

I would not drop Gomes, Crisp, or Pierre for him, but he is worth taking a flier on if you can drop a lesser semi-proven talent.

I just dropped Byrnes for him. I think Brynes hot streak is cooling off.
