So as one who has been following Kemp since he left there is good and bad in play since he left. The good is that he and Roberts have a great relationship The good is that when healthy he still has pop The good is that he can still drive runs in. The good is that while healthy last year his on base percentage went up The good is that he started last year til the hamstring problems started. He looked vintage at first The bad is that he can still go through strike out streaks at times The bad is his D is not good The bad is that after losing weight in last off season he put it back on after he had his hamstring problems The bad is he had a bad years with hamstrings last year The good is that the Dodgers have a great medical and conditioning staff and perhaps most importantly: Friedman has crunched all the numbers and knows when and how to use Kemp to maximize his output and keep him healthy. Don't play him on cold wet days early in the season, don't play him against tough right handed pitchers, give him time off etc etc. Roberts knows how to position him in left field and he gives the Dodgers a possible mid season trade piece to the American League before the trade deadline. Some of the things I have read elsewhere make me more inclined to now believe he will really stay in LA. Oh yeah the Dodgers have a great hitting coach who may have already figured out what he wants Kemp to do in the box.
