Congrats to Matt Kemp on 30/30!

TrueBlueLA has a pretty darn good post (here) on how fast Matt Kemp got there and the prospects of him getting to 40/40, which are surprisingly not too bad.

I don’t know about you, but it’s been a lot of fun going to the ballpark to watch Kemp play this year.

Kemp is currently leading the National League in WAR at 7.7 and is only .2 behind Jose Bautista (JOEY BATS!!) for the lead in all of baseball.  That difference can be  within the margin of error, though, so take it with a grain of salt.

Ryan Braun is second in the NL with a 6.5 WAR, a full win behind Kemp.  Knowing the voters, though, and how Braun’s team is currently in the playoff hunt, I wouldn’t be surprised if Braun won it.
