Matt Kemp

'VERY HAPPY' for Magic

to Take Over the Dodgers

4/2/2012 5:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Los Angeles Dodgers superstar Matt Kemp is fired up about the change in Dodgers ownership ... telling TMZ he's "very happy" that Magic Johnson is taking over the team.

Kemp was leaving Philippe Chow (great noodles) in L.A. this weekend ... when he told us, "Magic's the man" ... and noted it's "World Series time."

Kemp isn't the only Dodger fired up about the post-McCourt regime ... Andre Ethier and pitcher Clayton Kershaw have both expressed excitement about the change as well.

When we asked Kemp if Magic was gonna bring a little of the old "Showtime" flair to the Blue Crew ... Matt told us, "I hope so man."

So do we.

This weekend your website was so offensive, vile it made me sick. Did you change your business plan to copy Kim K's plan? Do any thing disgusting, vile, offensive and it will bring in money. You should say your sorry for the poll this weekend asking if Octo mom should be sterilized, have her kids taken away. That is so disgusting even for you. Kris H. has a date with a 16 year old. Shame on you for making it nasty about a 16 year old girl with cancer.

Now Larry Bird should buy the Padres. Renew the old rivalry again.

Alec Baldwin does well being in love...he hasn't looked this good in a decade. I need to fall in love, too, and lose thirty pounds. Hope it turns out well for him...his battle with Kim was really tough on all involved.

Somebody needs to let Matty know that Magic was pretty much just the "face" of the deal and is a small minority owner at best. He wasn't one of the big money men. I heard his role is going to be pretty much what Tommy Lasorda has been doing over the years... being an ambassador of the team.

I'm not trying to go all 'SouthPark' but Mr. Magic Johnson has HIV. Magic is just plain awesome.
