Kemp, Bills in the Fold

Dodgers Ink Kemp, Billingsley, Avoid Arbitration (True Blue LA)

Kemp for two years (for how much hasn't been released yet) and Billingsley for one year, $3.85 million.

UPDATE: Kemp's deal is for two years at $10.95 million. Did he just become richer than his girlfriend?

UPDATE 10:57p (Sax): Kemp passed his physical, so his two-year contract is official! Glad that everything went wella, wella, wella, eh, eh, eh.

$475K to $3.85 million is a pretty hefty raise. I can kinda sorta see why the Dodgers didn't start out spend-happy this offseason. Once they get the arb-eligible guys locked up, hopefully they can make a decent move or two.

That's not to say that Frank and Jamie are off the hook for their ridiculous divorce shenanigans.

Glad to see some movement getting these fellas locked up...puzzle coming together now.

2 years, $11 mil for the Bison.

Bills got $10K per pound?

Orel, I don't see Kemp in that wallet.

Between Kemp and the GF, I'm sure they could find a way to make ends meet.

@Sax "Orel, I don't see Kemp in that wallet."

It's a bisonskin wallet.

Dusty Baker said...

Is that the wallet that says "Bad Mother F*****" on it?

Bison. Bison more. Bison Deli?

My bet is J. Mart doesn't get more than 2 years and $8M. Ethier should get close to Bison money.

I'm out of beer.

RB-

I'm extremely low on beer. All I have is some upscale belgian winter ale and some downscale Trader Jose's Dos Equis knockoff.
