As far as Kemp goes, I wouldn't be too concerned about his playing time. That is as long as Big Joe can put up with Kemps inability to run the bases properly. !+)

I`m sure Torre is not thrilled with his plate discipline either.

Wow...I too am a Kemp fan, but recently drafted in a 12 man mixed league where 5 OF's are started and Kemp was not even drafted. Am I missing something here? I was under the impression that Kemp would be more of a platoon player with the addition of Andruw...

If you are in a keeper league I`m very surprised. But even if you are not, Kemp can still help you. Even if he does only get a little more than 400 ABs he could go 15-20 HRs and 15-20 SBs He should bat around .300. This is more than can be said for a lot of OFs. The low ABs can hurt you more in Runs and RBI.
I`d snatch him up immediately for the bench if he were available in my league regardless.

This just in from CBSSports.com: Dodgers OF Matt Kemp drove in three runs in Saturday's spring training game in Beijing, China against a Padres split squad. He drove in one run on a sacrifice fly in the first and two more in the third with a two-out, two-run single.

Matt Kemp has been starting a lot of spring training games and has a avg over .300 With numbers like the ones he has been putting up, there should be no reason that Joe Torre doesnt start him.

Mark my words, this year will be the last in which anyone sleeps on Kemp.

Haha, those are some epic words. I agree, he's going to have a breakout season this year.
