Colletti Claims to Covet Kemp

Buried at the bottom of the LA Times' article on the signing of Randy Wolf as our new #5 starter was the news that Ned Colletti wouldn't include Dodger prospect Matt Kemp with two other players in a deal for Manny Ramirez:

The Dodgers also are pursuing a power hitter, most likely through a trade. They have had discussions with the Boston Red Sox regarding left fielder Manny Ramirez, but the asking price has been too high. According to a source, the Red Sox want three players, including budding slugger Matt Kemp, the top outfield prospect in the organization.

I like Kemp, but if the other two players are Julio Lugo and Toby Hall, I say do the deal. Alas, Colletti has a penchant for players with four-letter last names (welcome, Randy). Maybe Colletti is a Boggle fan?

(For the record, FLOWAGE is the longest word I get. And it's ironic that FLUKE is in this particular grid as well, given the players. But then, so is WALLOP.)
