Iíve seen the Dodgers twice in person this season, and both times came away thinking that the team would be OK, that manager Don Mattingly would survive.
Now Iím convinced that Mattingly is going to get fired. And the sooner it happens, the better.
The players like Mattingly. Club executives insist his lame-duck status is not an issue. But Iíve seen it too many times with unproven managers who are in the final years of contracts.
A team struggles. A managerís personality turns. A cloud forms over a club.
Watch the games, listen to Mattingly and tell me this is not happening to the Dodgers.
thank the lord
