Torre: Dodgers frustrated, but team hasn't quit

LOS ANGELES -- Have the Dodgers quit?

Outgoing manager Joe Torre, whose club has lost 11 of 14 and gone 23-38 since the All-Star break, said no.

"I don't think anybody quit," said Torre, who announced he would step down as manager after the season.

"I'm sure the regulars are frustrated and disappointed, but nobody is showing up late or straggling in like it's an imposition for them. You know what [Matt] Kemp has been through this year. What [Andre] Ethier has been through, nursing a knee situation."

Ethier has played hurt since hyper-extending his knee in Spring Training, then turning his ankle in the first series of the season, then breaking his finger in May. None of the injuries is expected to require offseason surgery.

Second baseman Ryan Theriot endured an 0-for-26 slump until getting a single Saturday.

"He could probably use a rest," said Torre. "He'll get it when we go to Arizona [next weekend]."
