If you're going to take an enormous risk like the one the Los Angeles Dodgers are taking, giving Matt Kemp -- who has had just one great year in the majors -- an eight-year, $160 million contract, then he is exactly the kind of player on whom you want to take that risk. He's an outstanding athlete who hits, plays a position in the middle of the diamond and doesn't project to move to a corner any time soon.
