Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp: Double Trouble

The September issue of the Dodgers Magazine has Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp on the cover with the words: “Double Trouble.”    These two have been the offense of the team.   Here is the picture I took of the magazine:

Ethier and Kemp from mag.jpg

Great job with the picture on the cover and the ones inside the magazine.  It is an outstanding article with interviews from other baseball players and fans about these two!  

I know Ethierholics and Happy Kempers will be very happy with this issue!  

Andre Ethier  is leading the team in Homeruns with 27 and RBIs with 88.  He also has 36 doubles.

Matt Kemp is right behind Andre in RBIs with 87, he has 23 Homers, 22 doubles and 29 stolen bases.  

Both of them are great defensive players covering Bison County and Ethierland.  These are names we fans have tagged to center field and right field.

This is what Manny says in the article about them:  “Both of them have tremendous talent.  Ethier has a lot of power and he is a great fielder.  Matt Kemp is a tremendous player and his power is still developing.”  

 Local boy Jon Garland makes his debut as a Dodger against his old team the Diamondbacks.  Originally Garland was scheduled to pitch for his old team.  The D’backs will counter with Billy Buckner.  Jon Garland’s grandpa used to have season tickets to the Dodgers!

Those two guys are two of the most underrated players around. they both play to a high level of success and they are part of the reason the Dodgers have been so successfull. Great post.

Hey Dillon,
You bet! Andre and Matt are a huge reason for the Dodgers Sucess. If only some of the other guys would start hitting.

Eithier has shown to be one of the best guys in the game with the second highest multiple home run games

behind your truly, Albert Pujols.

He is just a machine: there is no stoppin him.

Eithier really has caught my eye,

he is young and he can hit.

It all gets better from here Emma,

believe it or not, the Dodgers will get better too.

Good luck,

and keep a-winnin.

The Dodgers’ double trouble combo is very exciting, and they’ll only get better. Good luck with Garland tonight. I hope he’s impressive and pitches well against his former team.

Ted,
Very poetic there! BTW, Pujols is one that said good things about these double trouble duo.

Jane,
Garland had trouble at the beginning It must have been nerves. Vin Scully was saying that Jon Garland’s grandfather had season tickets to the Dodgers so he attended a lot of those games. But he did good!

crzbluez,
Guess what? My wife bought some dodger tickets late in the day yesterday, so i was out at the ball park to see my boys in blue. I pick up the magazine my self. But thanks for been so thoughtfull,; as to trying to buy it for me and mailing it to me.
I acutally live in Santa Ana, OC
It’s not a bad drive to LA.
Do you have season tickets to the dodgers?
And if so where do you sit at?

I saw a picture of you in your blog, sitting right behind Tommy Lasorda. That must be really cool to sit up that close.

Emma,

Garland was beautiful. Another W in the books for the Blue Boys. Kemp and Ethier are as Blue as they get… Tommy would be proud to check out the blood running through their veins : )

Carcyn,
I was there early for BP. Were you there early? I do have season tickets in the Top Deck aisle 3 last row. Next time you and your wife are come say hi. Sometimes I sit in the field level with the company seats or I buy tickets for special events like tomorrow I will be in the “This is my town” section. Tomorrow is the spanish version of the shirt for Mexico with the all you can eat but probably after eating I will return to my regular seats. i don’t like seating all the way in the corners.

Buz,
Yes, Garland after over the butterflies, he did beautiful but this team is so inconsistent. It is so frustrating that they can’t beat the last place Padres. I hope Wolf restores order tomorrow but the hitters got to start hitting!

Jaime,
Fabuloso que la expocision de este ano sea “Fernandomania.” Que era esa! Yo escribi acerca del ano 1981 ya que fue la primera vez que tuve boletos de temporada. Sabes? You tambien sufro ultimamente cuando Broxton sube a la lomita. Desde que se lastimo el dedo gordo no ha sido lo mismo o fue desde que fue a el juego de las estrellas? Otro que no se que le ha pasado este ano es Russell. Claro que te escribire para que tengas mi correo electronico. Ahi te saludo a Josh Rawitch y a Jaime y tambien a Fernando. conosiste a Pepe tambien?

Julia,
I bet he was! He probably had a lot of family there. Jon went to high school close to where I’ve been working for the last 14 years.

Emma: OMG Andre is so cute on that!!! Matty Kemp…he is pretty cute, too! These Dodgers are an adorable team!!! -Virginia
