Matt Kemp your NL Batting Average Leader

Even if you don’t subscribe to batting average being part of the cool club, it is still something to marvel at when Matt Kemp leads the National League in batting average after two months of the season are in the books.

Notice I did not say he leads the NL in hitting as that is a completely different thing but hey his wRC+ is also quite lofty. For now let us put this stat to paper so it will remain forever logged.

As I was writing this Matt Kemp just slugged a home run and is now completely in front of Scooter Gennett.
