  • Matt Kemp going for 50-50 season in 2012

    I guess Kemp likes to set high goals for himself!

    For the record he first said this more than a month ago: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mlb-bi...181543367.html

    If he keeps his OBP high and stays healthy I suppose it's possible--improbable, but possible. Davey Lopes has really improved Kemp's steal pct..

        the most important thing is that he becomes a little more patient. he is not the guy who walks a ton. he improved in that regard but 24 of his 74 BBs have been IBBs. If you take his normal IBB levels he would still have been in the 50s.

        After his monster season pitchers will throw him a lot slightly of the plate. he cannot get frustrated by this and start fishing an inch or two off the plate but instead needs to take the walk and force the pitcher to throw strikes. this is not an easy thing to do.

        If I was him I would keep my bat on the shoulder the first games a lot (even take 1 or 2 looking Ks) to really demonstrate the pitchers "not with me-if you don't want to challenge me I don't care".
        I now have my own non commercial blog about training for batspeed and power using my training experience in baseball and track and field.

            You just violated one of the cardinal rules of the internet: never admit a mistake.

              I'm old enough to not care anymore.
