WEEI’s Rob Bradford reports that there is “nothing going on” between the Red Sox and Matt Kemp. They’re just in the basement watching videos and stuff. So quit turning the lights on from the top of the stairs, mom.
The idea makes sense: the Dodgers have too many outfielders and would like to part with one of their more expensive ones. The Red Sox have a need for some help in the outfield. The two teams have been big-time trading partners in the past. But it’s not that easy, of course. The Dodgers are getting decent production from Kemp lately and the Sox probably aren’t super eager to take on Kemp’s $107 million in outstanding salary obligations due to a possibly temporary outfield need right now.
Worth watching as the summer heats up, but seems a bit far-fetched right now.
