Kemp is younger, and can steal 30+
Rios had a career year, and Ethier can't hit lefties, and power has dropped.
Myers seems like a easy keep.
Kemp is having surgery on his shoulder next month. He is primarily an upper body swinger. I could see him struggle through the first half of the season. That's assuming that he'll be ready right out of the gate.
Votto is a much safer choice to post 1st round production. Kemp is more of a boom or bust pick.
