Kemp is as good, if not better prospect than Bruce, and is farther along, and they have more and better prospects than the Reds to offer. I can't imagine the Reds outbidding the Dodgers.
If I were WK I would trade Bruce for Bedard, but not much more.
Matt Kemp is very good but is not a better prospect than Bruce. Bruce put up better numbers while in the minors and he is a better defender. I will agree with you though, if the price is Bruce + Votto I do not make the trade. Bruce isn't just a good prospect, he's the best prospect in baseball.
