    You're such a homer.

    Pujols is going to destroy in that division

    I'm a total homer. I realistically think CarGo has a chance at the MVP, but I give the Rox ~ 45% chance of winning the division.

    Kemp has a career split of .297/.354/.507
    I'm just saying that he is going to regress back towards that. Especially when he starts facing some better pitching.

    Just coming into his prime and he has a little more help from Ethier. I dont see .400, but I dont know if .330 to .350 is out of his realm.

    If I were a Dodger's fan, I'd be happy if he kept is Ops up around the .800 level. Again, we're 20 games into a 162 game season, pitchers are going to figure him out. We'll see how he does after he deals with that kind of adversity.

    You guys are acting like I'm saying he's only going to have a 1 WAR season. I expect that he will finish at 4-5, he's just not going to finish at .350/.600/1.000 this year.

    I dont think it's reasonable to expect the OPS to stay in the stratospere, but I still think he can put up a bigger AVG than in the past. No...I dont think the power numbers will continue at this pace, but the hitting could.

    Other than a few Giants and D-Backs...he isnt exactly in a pitching rich division.

    But San Diego, LA, and SF are all pitchers parks. And what if Ethier gets hurt again (I think he's a little fragile), who's going to protect him in the batting order?

    Which is why I'll buy into him hitting .330 before I buy into him hitting 45-50 homers.

    Not sure I buy into the "lineup protection" theory to begin with. Only reason I mentioned Ethier is because he is pulling some of the load as well and it's not ALL up to Kemp.

    I know it's your right to dislike all other NL West players...but somethimes reality bites.

    I'm trying to figure out where I'm disliking other NL West players. I'd love to have a line-up of Matt Kemp, Eithier, Tulo, Cargo, Helton, Sandoval, Posey, and <insert the least inept 2nd baseman in the NL West here> on the Rockies every day. And how is saying that Kemp is going to have a 4-5 WAR season hating?

    Oh sorry, I just saw that he posted a 10.0 WAR season last year. I still don't think that is sustainable, but he can prove me wrong
