Matt interview after yesterday's game in which Matt homered, breaking out of the slump a bit

Matt Kemp was booed for his defense Thursday night at Dodger Stadium, on the same field he received his first Gold Glove earlier this month.

He misplayed a two-out line drive into center that went for a two-run triple in the Dodgers' 2-0 loss to the Pirates.

"The fans, they're not happy with the fact that we're losing," he said. "I thought they were a lot more supportive than they needed to be last night."

But when he came up to hit they cheered him.

"These fans are very fair, but they want to come out and see us win and we haven't been doing that," Kemp said. "To me it's a matter of winning a game or two and all of a sudden it's a different frame of mind or a different feel within the body."

When Matt Kemp joined the Los Angeles Dodgers four years ago, not long removed from his hometown of Midwest City, Oklahoma, it was your classic fish-out-of water narrative: Wide-eyed country slugger arrives in glamorous showbiz Gomorrah, spies Lamborghinis and poodle-clutching starlets, feels homesick and overwhelmed. “I was a little shocked,” Kemp recalls. “It took me a while to get used to the lifestyle.”

Flash forward four years. The fish has found the water. Kemp is one of the best players in baseball— last season, the 25-year-old center fielder batted .297 with twenty-six home runs and 101 RBIs and added a Gold Glove for his defense. And he’s embraced L.A. like Nicholson: He can tell you a prime lunch spot (West Hollywood’s Toast) and the pitfalls of shopping Rodeo Drive (“Some of those clothes are too small”).

Three Observations

1. Matt Kemp might be the best athlete in the majors

It didn't take long for Dodgers first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz to become a believer. A non-roster invitee last spring, Mientkiewicz admits that he'd first arrived in the clubhouse "on the fence" about Kemp, who was then all of 24. To Mientkiewicz, the precocious center fielder could seem "a little arrogant" from afar. But after about 15 minutes with him, Mientkiewicz says, "I became a big-time Matt Kemp fan." And while clutch-hitting right fielder Andre Ethier may have been the team's MVP last year, teammates see Kemp -- who won a Gold Glove and Silver Slugger and notched 26 homers, 34 steals and 101 RBI -- as the squad's "igniter." Explains Mientkiewicz: "Matty can beat you with a stolen base. Matty can beat you with his glove. He can beat you with a homer. He can beat you with an infield single."
