Mattingly content, but wouldn't oppose further moves

LOS ANGELES -- With less than one week remaining before the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline, the Dodgers have already dealt for starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco and reliever Carlos Marmol, and manager Don Mattingly said he would be content if the club kept the current roster in order.

"I wouldn't be afraid to go forward with it," Mattingly said.

But if general manager Ned Colletti could make a deal to improve the club, Mattingly would be all for it.

"I think you always want to try to get a little better," Mattingly said. "If you can get a little better, you try to get better. That being said, I think that's constantly always happening, you're never just standing pat and saying, 'OK, we're good enough.' I think you're always trying to get a little better."

Mattingly said he and Colletti have discussed different areas where the Dodgers could improve and which players are on the market. But the manager did not offer specifics.

"I hate talking about any one specific area, because you're basically saying another guy is not doing their job," Mattingly said. "I like our guys."
