More bad news for anyone intent on despising the Dodgers' Matt Kemp. You will now not only be hating a guy who took off and gave his jersey, hat, and shoes to a sick kid before a game, but now you're also hating this guy: I'm giving $1000 for tonight's HR and every HR until the All-Star break for...
