Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp(notes) may not bleed the Dodger blue that the fans hope for, but his agent goes out of his way to actually be sure everybody knows that he doesn't care for the team or city one little bit, according to the Los Angeles Times.
"Do you think for one moment I care about the town of L.A. or the fans there?" agent and former Dodger Dave Stewart wrote in an e-mail to the Times.
Kemp was not outraged by the comment when the Times filled him in. Instead, "he shrugged and said he had no problem with anything Stewart had to say," the paper reports.
Stewart's email also said, "He's going to be a great major league player. It doesn't have to be [in L.A.]. ...The big picture is he doesn't have to play [in L.A.]. There are 29 teams out there."
