    His dominance as a closer over a few years was remarkable.

  • Fangraphs makes a case for Matt Kemp as MVP.

His performance was worth 8.7 wins, a half-win ahead of Roy Halladay (8.2) and nearly a full win ahead of Ryan Braun (7.8).
  • Night Owl Cards shows off a great 2011 Matt Kemp night card.
  • Via SCD, 'Guilty Pleas in Jersey Fraud Cases.'
