It's looking more likely that this will be the last week we will see Matt Kemp in a Dodgers uniform.
Kemp's agent Stewart on trade talks: 'Sometimes change is good' - CBSSports.com

I was a huge Dave Stewart fan growing up but its obvious he has issues with the Dodgers organization since he left them for Oakland and everything he says about the Dodgers have a tinged of his distaste for the Dodgers and I really thing it has influenced Kemp in the way he acts and comments to the media. As far as I know Stewart only has 2 clients Kemp and Billingsley, yet I never hear him complain about how the Dodgers are treating Billz wrong because he is getting paid to do squat.

I still believe Kemp can be somewhat of a player he used to be, but with Stewart yapping away he has become just as a big of a distraction as the Dodgers having 5 OF's. I do hope when Kemp gets moved he gets shipped to the AL because he will turn it around he just needs to heal but of course Stewart will blame the Dodgers for his client not fulfilling his potential.
My ideal OF at this point is Van Slyke, Pederson and Puig, inject some youth and the Dodgers should play better, they eventually need to jettison Either, Crawford (tall order because of their contracts) Ramirez, and most of the bullpen and the back end of the rotation, IMO this groups window is closing now and the Dodgers need to inject this team with some more youth.

Peavy to the Giants
The Giants are making moves to try to improve, what are the Dodgers going to do?

As a padres fan, peavy is not an improvement. He was lights out in San Diego, and there was a reason they dumped him... He's a gap filler til Cain gets better then he will sit or be sent down and probably claimed.

This move helps the Dodgers. Peavy is trash. It's not 2007.

I'm not laughing off the Peavy trade like everyone else is. While he is not as good as use to be, he still has a knack to give the Dodgers trouble. I remember going to a Dodgers vs. Red Sox game last season where Peavy was still giving Dodgers hitters the fits.
It will take more than a couple of good starts from Peavy against the Dodgers to turn the Giants around though.

Here's the latest on the Matt Kemp trade front. Possible Kemp and large sums of cash to Boston for a rental of Jon Lester.

Other teams also interested in Kemp include Mariners, Rangers, and Indians.
Ned is also looking for relievers to pitch in the 7'th and 8'th. Looks like the Dodgers have given up on Wilson and Perez.

if Ned trades Kemp for a rental and sends cash the other way, he not only needs to be fired but drawn and quartered, I hope Stan steps in before Ned makes a blunder.
