Sox Pulling The Plug On Any Trade For Kemp

According to multiple sources, the Red Sox have given up any pursuit of Dodger outfielder Matt Kemp—making it clear to Magic Jonhson and company that he is not a "fit" on The Carmine Hose at this time. Kemp has six years and $128 million left on his Dodger deal, and any transaction would necessitate LA eating a big chunk of that remaining obligation. There had been talk of Will Middlebrooks (and others) going to Chavez Ravine in exchange for the talented (but oft-injured) Kemp.
