An Area of Improvement for Don Mattingly

I, like most of the writers here, am not a huge Don Mattingly fan. I’m not in the “fire Don Mattingly now” camp, but if the Dodgers do get rid of him at this afternoon’s press conference I won’t be shedding any tears. Still, in the comments section and on twitter I have been very critical of his in-game decision making. Thus, it’s only fair that I point out something...

Dodgers land Andrew Friedman — and it puts Don Mattingly on the hot seat

One down, one more to go? One in, another one on the way? And if connecting the dots is your thing, how can you not pull out a black marker and draw a direct line from Andrew Friedman to Joe Maddon right about now? In other words, if you’re Dodgers manager Don Mattingly, that seat you sit on just got a whole lot warmer. It’s not even winter yet, but the Dodgers just pulled...

Dodgers Rumors: Don Mattingly's job looks safe

The Los Angeles Dodgers head into the offseason following a 3-2 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 4 of the NLDS on Tuesday. Ranked sixth in the Major Leagues in both runs scored and team ERA, the Dodgers appear to have few holes to fill before next spring.

Los Angeles Dodgers: The Mattingly Curse is Real

The Curse of the Bambino lasted 86 years, the Curse of the Billy Goat may never end, and the newest curse in Major League Baseball is the Mattingly Curse. There’s no other reasonable explanation for why Don Mattingly has never been able to advance past the daunted League Championship Series to the World Series. Let’s start with his playing career which lasted from 1982-1995,...

Just How Bad Was the Strike Zone in Game 3?

Don Mattingly, the manager of the near-elimination Los Angeles Dodgers, called umpire Dale Scott’s strike zone from Game 3 “generous.” He told the media many Dodgers were complaining about the strike zone, and “that puts you in a bind.” Matt Kemp, the Dodgers’ right fielder, was slightly less discreet in his feelings about Scott’s calls on Monday evening. Of the strike...

Don Mattingly: Dodgers 'just not that good' right now

The Los Angeles Dodgers have a payroll of $239 million but that does not mean they are winning games. Though 61 games the team is just one game above .500 and are currently 8 games back in the NL West. Manager Don Mattingly told the Los Angeles Times that  “We’re just not that good. Home, away, whatever. I don’t know what that has to do with it.” The Dodgers have lost six...

Don Mattingly’s future with the Dodgers is up in the air, but if not him, then who?

Don Mattingly gave quite the exit press conference yesterday, basically saying that he has a guaranteed contract for next year, but if he doesn’t get a multi-year deal, then he might not be back with the Dodgers. “My option vested once we beat Atlanta, but that doesn’t mean I’ll be back,” Mattingly told reporters on Monday, with general manager Ned Colletti sitting beside...
