Mattingly confident Loney will turn it around
LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he's not worried about James Loney's slow start offensively.

"For me, the biggest concern is that he starts panicking and doing something different," Mattingly said of the first baseman, who came into Tuesday's game against the Pirates 0-for-12 with three strikeouts.

"He's the same as he was in Spring Training and the end of last year. At this point, I'm still feeling good with James. My concern is that the next thing you know, he's got a toe tap and his hands are lower and his feet are spread out. But I think he feels all right."
