Matt Kemp's Hot Start

Matt Kemp is having his best start of the season. Sure he's not hitting the long ball but he's doing almost everything else.

Two weeks into the season, he leads the league in AVG (.472); OPB (.578); and SBs (7).

He's got more discipline at the plate and isn't chasing bad pitches. He's only made one defensive error so far but catches almost everything hit his way.

I'm hoping this great start ends the same way it did in 2009, when Kemp won a Gold Glove and Silver Slugger.

I like to think Rihanna was the reason Kemp had an off season in 2010. I'm not the only one:

Well I hope he keeps it up and gives the fans something to cheer about all season long.

  1. The signed 'A'is sweet. I have the 'M'. I am still thinking about getting all the letters to spell out his name.
