Links On A Saturday Morning

Some guy I've never heard of asks who you would rather keep, Matt Kemp or Andre Ethier. I can't believe this guy was serious when he wrote this article. Of course he never gives an answer, sidestepping it at the end by calling it a tough decision that would make him pull his hair out. In what world is this a tough decision? It's Kemp every day of the week and three times on Sunday. [If You Had To Choose: Kemp or Ethier]

Ken Gurnick reports that Ronnie Belliard made weight (209 pounds) to guarantee his contract. When it takes that much motivation to lose some weight, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside that he'll be taking at-bats away, along with Jamey Carroll, from Blake DeWitt.

  1. If you had to choose between Kemp or Ethier?

    First off, I hate hypothetical questions like that. But, since he's asking, it's not even close. Matt Kemp is so much more valuable to the Dodgers in every aspect of the game. Don't get me wrong, I love Dre, but Kemp is one of the best players in all of baseball.

  2. Yeah, the hypothetical is flawed because the Dodgers really wouldn't ever be faced with this decision.

    And Kemp is far and away better, younger, plays a more important position, and has much more room to grow and progress as a player.
