    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.

    The Braves had to move either Kemp or Nick Markakis
    theyve a top five minor league player ready to start in the outfield. It was a given one of them had to go.

    Rosenthal notes in another tweet that the trade is “effectively cash-neutral overall,” but adds that the swap will put the Dodgers below the $197MM luxury tax threshold for the 2018 season. That will allow the Dodgers to reset the escalating luxury tax penalties, which seems to have been a significant objective for the club this offseason.

    Rosenthal says sources are saying Kemp likely to be traded or released.

    AGon waived his clause for 600K more in his pocket. He gets to stop playing BB without "Quitting" and travel the world with no regret.

    Thanks for (non recent) memories Adrian.

    Peace out!

    Cleaning the mess they made themselves, yeah. Argue AGon was part of it if you want but he was more than serviceable for the bulk of the time he was with us, unlike Kazmir and McCarthy.

    The scariest thing in the world for 28 other teams around baseball is the Yankees and Dodgers
    being run by intelligent people with good decision-making skills. They are. The second-scariest
    thing is the Yankees and Dodgers dipping under the luxury-tax threshold. They’re about to.
