Kemp, Colletti meet, clear the air

LOS ANGELES -- Manager Joe Torre said he sat silent in a meeting between Matt Kemp and Ned Colletti on Wednesday, and Kemp said Thursday any bad feeling between him and the Dodgers general manager was "squashed."

Colletti criticized Kemp's play during a radio interview with KABC on Tuesday.

"That's just old news to me. I'm going to go out here, get ready for my day, ready to play a baseball game," said Kemp. "Everybody has their own opinions."

Kemp said he's been getting himself out at the plate, but stressed it was not time for him or the team, in last place in the NL West, to panic.

Kemp hit two home runs on the Dodgers' nine-game road trip, but hit just .242. On the season, Kemp is batting .292 with team highs in home runs (seven) and RBIs (20).

"How many games we got left, about 140, huh?" Kemp asked, rhetorically. "How many games are we behind? So we got 140 games to make up five games. Wow, that's very possible. Very very possible."
