From the April 11, 2011 issue (UConn cover), Matt Kemp was selected as the sole subject of the sidebar column, "The Numbers" (no link, so I am actually typing this up manually, just for you):
On Opening Day, Matt Kemp did something he'd never done in 626 career games: He walked three times. For a player whose plate discipline has been a sore spot--176 career walks against 581 strikeouts coming into '11--it was a momentous achievement. Kemp also stole a base and scored the decisive run in the Dodgers' 2-1 win, then had an RBI double the next night--and, more impressively, hustled from first to third on a groundout by Marcus Thames, a sign that he's taking the teachings of new first base coach and baserunning guru Davey Lopes to heart. As a Phillies coach, Lopes was instrumental in helping Jayson Werth, among others, translate physical tools into on-field performance. After a difficult 2010 Kemp, 26, has a combination of skills, experience and now coaching that could elevate him to stardom.
Nice to see Kemp getting the pub he deserves. And not even a mention of that singer he used to date! What was her name again? You know, the one with the big forehead? I've forgotten.
