GLENDALE, Ariz. San Francisco Giants first baseman Brandon Belt's comments about the big-spending Dodgers hit Matt Kemp's radar. "All I can say is, you can't buy chemistry," Belt said at his team's FanFest earlier this month. Kemp was puzzled as to why Belt would say anything. "If I was a World Series champ, I wouldn't be saying anything about anybody's team, you know what I'm saying?" Kemp said Friday. "I don't have to say anything, Im a World Series champ. "I think we all saw those quotes. We're going to worry about the Dodgers. I'm sure the Giants should worry about the Giants. The thing about it is that they're trying to make this big rivalry, as far as, 'It's the Giants and the Dodgers.' You got other teams that are in this division that are really good too. Kemp said he has heard similar comments from others about the Dodgers' chemistry. "But were not worried about what people say," he said. "I can already tell with the people that we have here that the chemistry's going to be good. We built chemistry at the end of the year last year. Everything started working the way we wanted everything to work. We really don't care about what people say or how they feel. We have a great team. We have all the pieces that we need to be successful. "We have pitching, we have a bullpen, we have hitting. We have it all. There's going to be no excuses if we do lose. If everybody does their job, then we're going to be successful. I don't care what anybody says about us. We're going to be good. We just have to go out there and do our thing. So let them go out there and say what they want." -Dylan Hernandez
