“All I can say is, you can’t buy chemistry.”
Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea reports that attendees at the Giants’ Fan Fest earlier this month responded to Belt’s statement with “a thunderous ovation.”
Nothing like a few fightin’ words to stoke a good rivalry, right?
Kemp responded today. When told that it was Belt who made the “chemistry” quip, he seemed unimpressed.
“Yeah. OK. Yeah, exactly,” Kemp said. “I feel like if I was the World Series champ, I wouldn’t be saying anything about anybody’s team. You know what I’m saying? I don’t have to say anything. I’m a World Series champ. We’re not worried about what people say. I can already tell with the people that we have here that the chemistry’s going to be good. We built chemistry at the end of the year last year. Everything started working the way we wanted it to work. We really don’t care about what people say or how they feel. We have a great team. We have all the pieces that we need to be successful. We have pitching, we have a bullpen, we have hitters. We have it all. So there’s going to be no excuses on if we do lose. If everybody does their job, everybody has a role, everybody does their job, then we’re going to be very successful. I don’t care what anybody says about us, we’ll be good. We’ve just got to go out there and do our thing. So let them say what they want.”
