Update: Wisler not included in potential Padres deal for Kemp

Updating an earlier item, FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal says that Padres top prospect Matthew Wisler is no longer being considered a possibility to be included in a potential deal that would send Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp to San Diego.

Though the teams are said to be closing in on a possible deal, negotiations are continuing regarding the Dodgers’ potential return package.

In exchange for Kemp, the Dodgers are believed to be asking for a young pitcher in addition to Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal. With Wisler reportedly off the table, Rosenthal speculates that right-handed prospect Joe Ross could be the other piece to the puzzle, while Jon Heyman of CBS Sports suggests it may be fellow prospect Zach Eflin.

KEMP IS A TROUBLE MAKER. HE WOULDN’T PLAY ON MY TEAM, FOR FREE

YASIEL PUKE SHOULD START THE SEASON IN DOUBLE A BALL, OR PERHAPS SINGLE A. THIS CREATURE IS SIMPLY NO GOOD, AND HE NEVER WILL BE. MARK MY WORDS, THE DODGERS WASTED A LOT OF MONEY ON HIM, AND WILL LIVE TO REGRET IT. IN 2015, THE DODGERS WILL WIND UP THIRD IN THEIR DIVISION. THEIR ONLY DECENT PLAYER IS KERSHAW, AND HE CAN ONLY PITCH EVERY 4-5 DAYS. MATTINGLY WILL BE FIRED AFTER THE 2015 SEASON. HE IS JUST IN OVER HIS HEAD. ADIOS DONNIE BASEBALL

TURNING TO THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE, FSU IS HISTORY. OHIO STATE IS HISTORY. IT WILL COME DOWN TO OREGON AND ALABAMA, AND ALABAMA WILL WIN BY 10 POINTS OR MORE. STAY TUNED SO YOU CAN SAY, YOU WERE CORRECT, BILL and PAMELA GOLDMAN, OF BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA, WHO ARE HUGE GIANTS FANS. BOCHY IS THE BEST MANAGER IN MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL, AND IS A LOCK FOR THE HALL OF FAME. THANKS BRUCE, YOU MAKE US VERY PROUD OF YOU AND ALL OF THE GIANTS. I BET STRETCH MCKOVEY and WILLIE MAYS ARE LOVING THE GIANTS OF THE LAST FIVE SEASONS. IF THERE WAS EVER A DOMINANT TEAM, IT IS OUR SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS. GIANTS WIN IT ALL AGAIN IN 2015. YES. THANKS TO SABEAN FOR LETTING THE TEAM GATHER ALL OF THE TALENT THEY HAVE. WE HOPE WE HAVEN”T LEFT ANYONE OUT, THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THE GIANTS ORGANIZATION. YES YES YES

I DIDN’T MEAN NFL. I MEANT NCAA FOOTBALL IN MY LAST COMMENTS. IT WILL COME DOWN TO OREGON AND ALABAMA, AND ALABAMA WILL WIN IT ALL QUITE EASILY. BY AT LEAST 7-10 [POINTS IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. LET THE TIDE ROLL FOR THE LATE, GREAT, PAUL BEAR BRYANT. R.I.P. COACH BRYANT. YOU WERE THE BEST.

Get a life dude. You’re obviously not a Dodger fan and secondly, they have Puig to a team friendly contract so he is hardly overpaid.The Giants have their own needs that need addressed before you go off crowning them 2015 champs.
