08:15 AM ET 05.07 | Though it's early, Matt Kemp has to be considered Triple Crown threat. [Kemp] leads the league in hitting (.392) and homers (12) and is second to teammate Andre Ethier in RBIs (27; Ethier has 28). ... [He's] not among the leaders in walks and, surprisingly, not getting the Barry Bonds treatment. He wasn't intentionally walked until Wednesday, when Rockies manager Jim Tracy walked him with two outs, a man on first and the Rockies up 5-3. Well, Kemp scored the tying run on Dee Gordon's double in a game that ended on Jason Giambi's pinch homer in the bottom of the ninth. "First sign of it right here," [his agent, Dave Stewart] said of the Bonds treatment.

Bonds treatment. Is that the cream or the clear?

I guess he's not despised enough to get the Barry Bonds treatment.

Doesn't it suck that every time for the foreseeable future a player shows talent like this that the first thought is "What kind of juice is he on"?
