File this under Hot Tips: The Los Angeles Dodgers's Matt Kemp will be named Major League Baseball's Player of the Month for April. No, it's not official. And there's still more than a week left to play in April.
But Matt Kemp has hit nine home runs in the last 11 games. The man is on fire. Can it be that finally being paid what he's worth is having an effect? Matt's a youngster, 25, and after earning less than half a million the last three years (only a palry sum by MLB standards), Mr. Kemp signed a new deal earning him $4 million in 2010.
Matt, you are the man. Look for your face on the cover of Sports Illustrated soon. And by the way, do you have an investment advisor?
