Matt Kemp: The Dodgers outfielder spoke with TJ Simers of the LA Times, who asked whether Kemp’s wretched season (batting average down 40 points, OPS down from .842 to .760, on pace to finish with more strikeouts and less RBI than last year) has anything to do with the fact he is dating singing sensation Rihanna. “My girl has nothing to do with what I do on the baseball field. If anything she helps. She makes me happy, and as stressed as I am coming home sometimes, it’s nice to have someone there who just wants to support you.” Kemp is a lucky man. [Times]
