KEMP WORRIES ABOUT BRAUN
Fri, 24 Feb 2012 08:45 PM EST

L.A Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp recounted that he doesn’t think he ought to be given the National League Most Valuable Player Award if the winner of the award, Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun, displaces his appeal of a 50-game suspension for a positive performance-enhancing drug test.

Kemp came 2nd to Braun in balloting for the award by the BBWAA, which already has recounted the award, will stay with Braun irrespective of how his appeal is resolved.

“I feel a bit like that will be by default,” related Kemp, who previously is in spring training a couple of days before the Dodgers ‘ position players are needed to report. “I wish that I would’ve won it just by them voting me and me being the Most Valuable Player Award. That’d be valued. But hopefully, I’ll have the same kind of year or even much better and win it straight up this year, with us making the playoffs.”

Kemp expressed concern for what Braun is going thru. Football lines

“It’s an unfortunate situation,” he announced. “I still don’t know what’s going to occur. I know Braun. We have invariably been great, and we’ve been friends. He is one of my fave players in the giant leagues. I hope it is not true, but I do not believe it’s for me or any of [the press] to decide. Only he knows for sure, and I do not know what the outcome is going to be.”

Kemp further said he tried hard to hire his great friend, free-agent 1st baseman Prince Fielder, to the Dodgers last winter before Fielder ultimately adopted a nine-year, $214 million agreement from the Detroit Tigers. The Dodgers reportedly offered Fielder a seven-year, $160 million offer that Fielder might have voided after the 5th year.

“We talked on various occasions,” said Kemp, who added that he wasn’t asked by the Dodgers’ front office to help in luring Fielder to L. A. “I got my inducting on hard. A 50-plus home run, 100-RBI guy might have really helped our team. We tried to get him over here. The front office tried to get him over here, however it just didn’t occur.

“I understand we were acceptably close.”

Kemp’s teammate, Dodgers outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr., also admitted to helping in the ill-fated pursuit of Fielder, his previous colleague with the Brewers.

Kemp stated that he has not been paying total awareness to the Dodgers’ continuing sale method and he hasn’t selected a favorite from amongst the groups jostling to buy the franchise.

“I think it will be a nice thing to get all this past us,” Kemp claimed. “It was an unlucky situation last year. I suspect the fans will start concentrating on baseball again. … [But] seriously, to tell you the complete truth, I’m not sure who is in the running. That’s another thing that’s out of my hands.”

Kemp fell just short of turning into the 5th member of baseball’s rare 40-40 club final season, hitting 39 homers and stealing 40 bases to go with his .324 average, 33 doubles and .399 on-base %, then related when he signed his new 8-year, $160 million deal in Nov that he hoped to go 50-50 this year.

Requested regarding that statement, Kemp didn’t back away from it.

“Anything is possible, he answered.” Let’s see. We all have goals.”
