He isnt plantooning as of right now because Andruw Jones is on the DL, but even before that he was starting most games besides at the beginning of the season.
and Why would he go the Mets? lol, who could they possibly trade for him?
I know Jones is out now and I can dream.
Yes you can.
Kemp is only 23. He had a great season last year but this year he has struggled with making adjustments (like every young player). I just hope he will eventually be able to make these adjustments.
I mean look at Ryan Braun he has 12 walks and 55 strike outs while Kemp has 16 walks and 66 strike outs. Braun just has a little but more power but considering he hits infront of Prince he gets a lot of good pitches to hit.
I feel Kemp needs to be batting in the 3rd spot despite his strike out rate but the Dodgers need to give him a little more protection then Jeff Kent.
What they could do is Make a deal for Bay but try to keep Kemp on the team. This may mean getting rid of Loney and Ethier.
I really hope Kemp pans out considering many top prospects dont pan out and I think he will.
