The Dodgers did pretty well in Kemp's absence, but he'll be a sight for sore eyes anyway. At the time he went on the DL, Kemp was hitting .359 with 12 home runs. He was batting over .400 as late as May 8.
If Kemp picks up right where he left off, the good people of Southern California are going to get to see something that they haven't gotten to see yet: Matt Kemp and Albert Pujols both playing well at the same time.
I won't go so far as to say that the two of them are joined at the hip, but they're without a doubt the two biggest baseball stars in Southern California. Kemp is arguably the best all-around player in baseball, and Pujols is one of baseball's all-time great hitters.
