A big two-day stretch for Matt Kemp who will remain a Dodger for the rest of this season.
Maybe the best trade the Dodgers can make at the deadline is not trading Matt Kemp.

Vin Scully: "There’s a lot of times I drive home saying, ‘Dummy, why didn’t you say what you’re thinking of right now?'"
Vin Scully: "It’s a long time to be working at one job with no advancement. I’ve stayed the same for 65 years."
Yes, Michael Beasley worked out for the Lakers today, but it does not sound like anything is imminent between the sides.
Durant made point to say yesterday Heat will be "really good." Cited Wade bounce-back and Bosh in new role and called Deng "a great player."

Source who saw Beasley's workout tells me: "Looked very good and he has been working out ... A tiny rust from layoff but did a good job"
The Lakers worked out free agent forward Michael Beasley in El Segundo on Wednesday, per multiple league sources
Dallas needed 49 wins just to get into the playoffs this past season and these West teams remained the same or got better. Except Houston.
The San Antonio Raiders, huh? If you believe that perhaps I can interest you in this Irwindale Raiders pin. http://t.co/z16NuNBtzt
The Dodgers have the best record in the National League and a 3-game lead on the Giants atop the NL West. This may be news to 70% of L.A.
No cycle for Puig but a standing ovation as he walks off the field.
Great to see fans supporting Byron Scott and Jamaal Wilkes said it best: “A tie to the past, but more importantly, a bridge to the future."
That's two 2-run home runs for Matt Kemp tonight. One to right and one to center. What's his trade value now?
Dodgers 7, Braves 4 in the bottom of the 7th inning after that Kemp home run.
Matt Kemp. Home Run.
The root of suffering is to be found in our constant wanting and craving
Of course, for the media, it's one of the best days. A front row seat to 30 minutes worth of Vin Scully stories.
Tomorrow will be Scully's least favorite day at the ballpark. He will address the media pregame. Would rather give a statement and move on.
Scully: "It is very difficult to say goodbye. God willing I will be back next year."
Vin Scully began his professional baseball broadcasting career in 1950 with the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Scully: "It is just too hard to say goodbye to all these friends."
Next season will be Vin Scully's unprecedented 66th season in the broadcast booth for the Dodgers.
Scully: "Naturally there will come a time, when I will have to say goodbye, but I’ve soul-searched and this is not the time."
Dodger fans came to the ballpark tonight thinking a Scully microphone would be the best present. Not. Even. Close.
Standing ovation for Vin Scully as his return for next season is announced. He waves at the fans and hugs his wife.
Maybe, just maybe the other 70% of L.A. will be able to hear Vin Scully call games next season.
Vin Scully will be returning for the 2015 season.
Byron Scott had two teams that ranked No. 1 in defense: '02 & '03 NJN. His '11 Cavs, however, were 29th. Is defense coaching? Or personnel?
In other words, KD didn't make some speech. He was answering our questions, I thought quite honestly.
Durant "It’s kind of tough to sell OKC over Chicago. OKC, LA. But if they come to OKC and see the love they get, guys will want to come"
Asked Durant how close he was to getting Pau Gasol to OKC. "Obviously not that close. But I did my work. That was my first time recruiting"
Durant: "But I just tell everybody that I’m here in Oklahoma City, I love it here. Who knows what will happen."
Durant on DC: "It’s been talked about. Everybody’s asked me about it every time I go on Instagram or Twitter. All my friends ask me"
Durant on his hometown, DC, in 2 years : "I’m not going to sit here and act like I’m naïve to the fact that people think about that stuff"
Durant on his own FA choice: "It’s hard to talk about that right now when I’ve got two years left in OKC. I’m just going to focus on that"
Durant: "He thought about the city where he comes from, about NE Ohio & how he can affect so many kids just being there playing basketball"
BBN, on my way to Wildcat Wearhouse in Fayette Mall as we speak. Hope to see all of you there from 7-8!
