Matt Kemp: Too Damn Classy

Matt Kemp on Frank McCourt selling the Dodgers, from "Kemp touches on contract, Prince, NL MVP" by Ken Gurnick at

"I was a little surprised. It's unfortunate for Mr. McCourt. I have nothing but respect for him. We always had a good relationship. Let everybody know I wish him the best."

Oh yeah:

This year, Kemp was voted by teammates as winner of the Roy Campanella Award, which goes to the Dodger who best exemplifies the spirit and leadership of the late Hall of Famer; he's received the Hank Aaron Award, as the most outstanding offensive player in the NL; the Baseball America Player of the Year; the NL Stan Musial Award, presented by the Baseball Bloggers Alliance; won the Gold Glove Award; won the Silver Slugger Award; was named a finalist for the Players Choice outstanding player in the NL; and was named to The Sporting News NL All-Star team.

And, since that was published, he went on to win said Outstanding Player in the NL Award.

What a glory hog.

And the Time Person of the Year award?

Kemp wins Employee of the Month for Carmax store 5526 in Buena Park, CA. Matt sold 15 cars in less than 25 days on the job, and he merely called the office to speak to potential buyers.

Congrats, Matt!

Kemp makes me happy I'm still a Dodger fan. Could anyone imagine being an Angel fan and pinning your hopes on Kendrys Morales' bad ankle?

I have a ManWood for Kemp man. Man crush sounds to gay. Not that there is anything wrong with it
