Though Kemp is known for hitting the ball with power to all fields, through the first three weeks of the season, Kemp has done little against the pitches on the inner half of the plate, or that jammed him off the inside corner.

Andre Ethier on his favorite L.A. restaurant: “It would have to be Osteria Mozza. In fact, after I first found out about Mozza I begged my wife to live near that area so I could strategically place the stadium and our house on opposite ends of the restaurant and just stop in late at night. I like to believe I am the only one who gets takeout from the restaurant; the restaurant doesn't do takeout. It's a nice little text to [the chef or owner]: "Hey, I'm on the way, can I get some stuff?"—and they'll let me slip in the back alleyway and have some [food] for me.”
  • Mike Petriello at MSTI, writes that "The Luis Cruz Experiment Just Isn't Working Out."  I still think it's too early to tell.  The season is way too young.  On the other hand, I am known by friends to be an extremely patient person.
  • Greg Zakwin at Plaschke, Thy Sweater is Argyle snagged a couple of Drysdale auto's; of both husband and wife.
  • GCRL continues on with Part 2 of the evolution of Dodger 3rd Basemen with Baseball cards.

He loved to hunt.  I can attest from my Mom, Dorothy, her and Babe ate everything he shot! Babe loved to try all sports.  He loved to play basketball, bowling, swimming, handball, football at Notre Dame, with “Wild” Bill Kelly.  In his earlier days, he loved to box.  His friend Jack Dempsey told him that baseball paid better.  He tried Tennis, Cricket, Pool, swimming, and he loved to horseback ride and did it every chance he could.  Of course we can not forget his golfing!
