Matt Kemp's agent fires back at Ned Colletti

Matt Kemp headshot.pngNed Colletti called out Matt Kemp the other day.  Yesterday Dave Stewart, who (a) is Matt Kemp’s agent; and (b) is one of the more intimidating dudes to have played the game in recent
history, fired back:

“This kind of thing in all the years I’ve been in baseball has never
happened with any general manager on any team I’ve ever played on where
you single out a player and you hold him accountable for the outcome of
what 24 other players are doing as well. There are 25
players on a team.”

Stewart also made a point to mention that Kemp is up for arbitration in the near future and within a couple of years of free agency. Which, given the context, strikes me as a warning to Colletti that if things keep up the way they are and his client keeps getting called out, Stewart and Kemp may not be in a dealing mood.

Which is a problem. Not as big a problem as the lousy signal it sends to every other player currently on or ever considering joining the Dodgers while Ned Colletti is on the job (i.e. we’ll throw you under the bus is we have to) but a problem all the same.

    Is Dave Stewart “one of the more intimidating dudes to have ever played the game” because he got arrested with a Transvestite Prostitute?
    Or is he intimidating because he failed to tip said Prostitute?
    Clarify, s.v.p.

    Are you a big celebrity gossip fan or a sports fan? Or does that sort of thing just interest you?

    Los Angeles transvestites are better looking than New England women. If all you’re looking for is a BJ in a car, there’s really no reason to assume that your gorgeous, orally talented provider is actually a guy. It could happen to anyone. Errr, right guys? Who’s with me? Aside from Ronaldo and Eddie Murphy and every other poor schmoe who’s been dealt the “tranny surprise.”
    I also love that there are dweebs like this loser here trying to insult Dave Stewart electronically. I really wish there was some way to take this particular sack of crap and set him up with a steel cage match against Dave Stewart.

    Ned should probably keep his mouth shut when he’s drinking.
