Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweeted earlier tonight that the Dodgers are still in touch with the Tigers, Red Sox, and Mariners about Matt Kemp, with the primary issue being that the Dodgers would want top quality back. That’s totally fine, completely understandable, and not at all new information. We know the Dodgers have been speaking to other clubs, and we know there isn’t likely to be a deal.
But then Rosenthal’s colleague Jon Morosi chimed in to add that Kemp and new Detroit manager Brad Ausmus were once teammates in Los Angeles… and all of a sudden, that started a scavenger hunt. If that’s all it takes, well… Kemp could be going anywhere. Anywhere!

Matt Kemp plays on Dodgers who employ Vin Scully who was in “For Love of the Game” with Kevin Costner who was in “JFK” with Kevin Bacon.
