Dodgers Wheeling And Dealing

Matt Kemp, Carlos Quentin

    Matt Kemp to the Padres? Reminds us of the gem above when the Dodgers and Padres squared off a bench-clearing brawl in 2013 resulting in a broken collarbone for Zack Greinke and Kemp wanting to bust a cap in San Diego’s Carlos Quentin outside the locker rooms for plenty see.
    Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman went to the winter meeting in San Diego with both guns blazing. But is he seriously thinking of dealing Kemp? We’ll probably know soon.
    Obviously, at some point he’s going to have to deal with the outfield situation. Kemp, though, isn’t the right guy to trade.
    OC Register
    As you know, the Dodgers sent Kemp to the Padres in what looks like a salary dump, but what some are saying and writing was a case of removing a problem in the locker room. I never saw that problem with Kemp. With me, he was always available to chat. Probably didn’t hurt either that he knew I was the only writer in the locker room who had sucked down 1 or 2 at Elmer’s (or maybe it was because I’m from Boley:).
    Couldn’t tell you if he was a problem with Manager Don Mattingly and the coaches. That’s what’s being written though. Still, Kemp wasn’t given the benefit of the doubt the past 2 years after he was seriously hurt with a shoulder and ankle injuries. And it’s not like the Dodgers haven’t dangled him before. They wanted him out of L.A. for whatever the reason. That might cost the Dodgers more than that $32 million they’re giving the Padres to take him.

Bryan Burwell: 1955-2014


    My heart’s a little heavy today.
    One of the country’s few black sports columnists and an outstanding writer with a colorful personality to boot, Burwell passed Thursday morning from cancer. He was only 59.
