Good call back then. That I respect. Cespedes for Lester was the trade. As I recall, Kemp for Lester was the talk. That's why I don't think such talk was outlandish at that time.

My ranch value was appraised at $1,000,000 in 2005 so if you need a paying job when your welfare runs out I could probably hire you to help prune the trees. We'll show you how to do it and everything. I'm a nice guy like that.

Aw, you're still mad because I said if Joc hadn't struck out in the clutch then Kemp would have. Plus I don't have a violet blob as my avatar. Now I get it.

This from a guy who bases his entire knowledge of baseball on advanced metrics? Way to enjoy the sport. You should love Billy Beane then. All numbers, no championships. That's how we roll!

Well, since I'm not in the clubhouse every day then I don't really know what he actually said and neither do you. Most agents speak for their clients and I never heard of Kemp disavowing anything HE said so what is one to think?

That's funny! You don't know me because I am the LAST guy to listen to media driven narratives, honestly. Also, I'm the last guy to pay heed to Sabermetrics and other analytics more than observation. That comes from being an A's fan.

NoWin, for some reason you are a presumtuous and insulting bitch. I have never really responded in a personal way until now to your personal attacks but your horseshit is really over the line. Yeah, I'm, stupid. I'm so stupid that I taught school for 25 years, retired early and now live with my beautiful wife on my 40 acre almond ranch. My only decision today was whether to endorse my check for this year's crop in blue or black ink. So the next time you take a taxi to the beach why don't you think of ways to not be such an obnoxious asshole? I know sports as well as anyone here and my opinion is just as valuable as the next guy. If you disagree then whoop-de-frickin'-do! I'll dry my tears on the way to the bank.

Now that Kemp is hitting it seems mandatory that every post requires an "and people actually wanted to trade this guy?????" statement,in so many words. The hindsight there is 20/20 as always but in July, he still wasn't anywhere near where he is now offensively, he was grumbling about wanting to play center, despite being terrible at it in 2014 AND almost every trade scenario offered included someone like Jon Lester. So, AT THE TIME, I don't think a desire to see Kemp traded was outlandish at all. Neither did Dave Stewart. I am glad he wasn't and admit that I was wrong. I hope he can keep it up through October and beyond.

When I taught school fo 30 years it was Add then ADDHD then ADHD. Take your pick.

It's a prescription drug traditionally used to treat ADDHD in CHILDREN. Ballplayers have discovered this wonderful loophole in the MLB drug testing program: get a prescription from your friendly neighborhood quack, er, doctor allowing for a free pass froM MLB to use this drug which acts like an amphetamine in adults. Hey! No more buying greenies at the truck stop!
