He looks pretty good but I don't think he keeps up this pace. Although Grady's comments were nice
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Matt Kemp - Outfielder


Matt Kemp went 2-for-4 and hit his fourth homer Tuesday in a win over the Mets.
bIt doesn't take much more than an average curve or slider to make Kemp look silly, but when he gets something straight, he's feasting at the plate. We're guessing Tom Glavine, Wednesday's scheduled starter, was taking notes. Jun. 7 - 2:01 am et


Sure these youngsters will look foolish on many of swings. For example, i've been looking at Milledge very closely during his AB's with the Tivo slow motion, LM swings at some breaking balls that break away about a foot from the bat, other times he's able to hold off these pitches. If there good, they'll adjust.

Exactly. Plus, that rotoworld blurb was written after the Mets and Dodgers first game. Yes, Kemp looked silly swinging at curveballs his first two at bats .... but those curve balls were coming from Pedro Martinez. PEDRO FREAKING MARTINEZ! Are they comparing Pedro's curveball to an "average major league curveball?"

Also, Kemp made a tremendous adjustment because Pedro threw him 1 curveball too many as during his 3rd at bat ... he parked a Pedro curveball 400 feet to right center field.

Rotoworld is such a joke sometimes.

HTH.

alright, you have one spot on your roster, who is it , milledge or kemp, considering most playing time (milledge only has to go up against an injured floyd or x. nady. also consider the tools, i think milledge would get my vote...what do y'all think?

Just basing it off of pre-season prospect rankings it would be Milledge. Add in playing time considerations and that makes it even more in Milledge's favor. Finally Milledge has looked OUTSTANDING in the field. The way he's been playing out there he could have a spot on a lot of teams even if he wasn't hitting. If he keeps hitting decently well and continues his excellent play in the field he'll be very hard to dislodge from the starting lineup.

The playing time question is killing me .... once Repko comes back the LA OF is Drew Lofton Cruz Ethier Repko and Kemp. Ugh. That's the obvious con.

The pro is that Cruz sucks and belongs on the bench and given time will play himself onto the pine. That Grady Little endorses Kemp so wholeheartedly. And that Drew and Lofton are injury prone.

Ah crap. While I'm scratching my head between Kemp and Milledge someone else probably just pulled the trigger... !+)
