We all remember when Matt Kemp was the franchise player of the Dodgers, getting on base often and using his athleticism to cover a lot of ground in the outfield.
Los Angeles is known for its fitness and emphasis on nutrition, so that must have been ingrained in Kemp’s lifestyle when he was there.
Well, now that he’s been in Atlanta, which is known more for its food and beer, it’s clear that that’s had an impact on him, and he’s gained a ton of weight.

“I have a gut now, and my team sucks!”
Who is this guy? It’s too bad Kemp plays in the National League, as there’s no option for him to DH.
