Wednesday, Matt Kemp — who finished second to Ryan Braun in the National League Most Valuable Player voting — addressed Braun’s failed drug test. Via MLB.com:
Everybody voted, I got second place. I’m in the gym, working hard so I can win next year. You know, it’s just an unfortunate situation. Everything will probably pan out, and we’ll see what happens in the end. It’s just speculation, nobody knows anything, you know, everybody’s guessing. The truth will come out.
You gotta love Kemp just a little more. Instead of pissing and moaning, he just says he wants to play even better next season. Granted, he probably won’t play better next season. But it does seem like he’s got his head in a good place. It’s too bad more baseball writers don’t seem to share Kemp’s perspective on this subject.
