    Surprise. The Red Sox were able to trade Dubront to Theo for peanuts. This clears a space on the 25 man roster for Workman who will start tonight.

    That guy is a complete moron who said Kemp can’t be traded unless L.A. eats all of his salary. If the Dodgers ate half his salary (making him a $10mil per guy for the team acquiring him), more than half the league would be lining up to make offers. $10mil is nothing nowadays. You got 40 y/o guys like Beltran and Swisher signing for $15 mil and this clown thinks LA needs to eat “almost all” of Kemp’s salary.

    Doesn’t matter cuz it’s not happening anyway. L.A. would never trade him and agree to pay even half his salary. The “reward” of them saving $10mil (nothing to L.A.) doesn’t warrant the risk of him playing for someone else for a measley $10mil and being a 25hr, 85rbi guy for them while they laugh their butts off.

      I’d still trade him and eat half his salary for Lester, even if he’s considered a rental.
