Good story in the L.A. Times from Hall of Fame writer Ross Newhan on Don Mattingly and his impact on the Dodgers.
It’s funny how things work sometimes. Mattingly didn’t get the Yankees job a year ago and was disappointed. But that proved to be a good thing for him because of family problems that came to a boiling point shortly after.
After missing the first part of the season, he returned to Joe Torre’s staff and as this story details, he has played a significant role with the team.
It will be interesting to see when – and where – Mattingly does become a manager.
