Report: Matt Kemp & Dodgers talking 8 YR / $160M Extension Contract

Make it happen! I don't want to see a player like Matt Kemp leave or get traded like Mike Piazza.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports tweets that the Dodgers and Kemp are in serious discussions on a eight-year extension contract worth $160 million. {linked here}

Kemp has said that he would want to stay in Los Angeles and his agent Dave Stewart would want to get something done before Opening Day. It seems the Dodgers and Kemp are close to get a deal done soon. This would be great news since Kemp can hit the free-agency market next year and have teams like the Yankees and Red Sox over-bid for his services.

Get it done!
