Management has spent plenty to win now, but the second-place Dodgers have now lost back-to-back games to last-place teams.

"We can spend and we can hear about all the great players, but until we do it on the field it doesn't mean anything," ace Clayton Kershaw said before the Dodgers were clobbered by the Rockies, 10-0, on Monday night at Coors Field.

"I have to make sure we don't think we can just show up and we're going to win because we got new guys," manager Don Mattingly said. "We've got to play and we know it. I don't feel there are any guarantees and the players know that, too."
