    If Matt can keep this pace up for about 8 more seasons, then we'll talk.
    you can take the Dodgers out of Brooklyn, but you can't take the Brooklyn out of the DODGERS

    It might not take that long. If healthy, he'll probably shatter the all-time Dodger home run record while still in his prime.

    We'll see, as they say.

    Duh- how do you respond to a question like this? To try to be serious, though, Kemp IS really good, and he seems to be getting better. But, let's wait a few years- or even until later this season! He's going to have to continue to do what he's been doing the last couple of years for quite a while to match Robinson and Snider.

    He may be a potential candidate, but I won't even go near this question for at least another five years.

    Put it in the books.

    who is the best dodger of all time to date?
    I now have my own non commercial blog about training for batspeed and power using my training experience in baseball and track and field.

    I'm thinking the answer to that question is relatively subjective. I'll say Branch Rickey. Does it have to be a player?

    Matt has the advantage of hitting against watered down expansion pitching. Duke and Jackie Didn't face pitchers who should be at AAA.
    Baseball. The official sport of god.

    Watered down? Duke & Jackie faced pitchers from a nation of 175M. Today our country has over 300M folks.
    That being said, Matt Kemp has a ways to go......................

    Jackie also didn't face all of the world-wide talent pool that MLB is now made up of.

    He never had to bat against guys like Juan Marichal, Pedro Martinez and Luis Tiant.

    And I agree, Matt has a long way to go...

    Two separate franchises....will Steven Strassberg be the greatest Montreal Expo/Washington National pitcher ever? When you desert a location, you forfeit the history of that city at least in my opinion.

    Although I'll tell you. Vin Scully is the greatest Brooklyn Dodgers broadcaster of all time and is also the great Los Angeles Dodger broadcaster of all time.

    The Brooklyn Dodgers, by their own volition, ceased to exist at the end of the 1957 season. All the Brooklyn records are frozen as of that time.
