DON MATTINGLY RUMORS

VMart and Donnie Baseball

Victor Martinez is having a remarkable offensive season. And it isn’t just the 31 homers and 31 doubles and the .333 batting average. What is remarkable is that in the inglorious age of the strikeout, Martinez has only struck out 40 times all season. He is on pace to finish with 43 strikeouts.

Dodgers Manager Mattingly Finally Doing His Job

Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images As unpopular as it is to make an example of one of your star players, Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly, seems to have no fear lately in calling out his players for poor performance. What is interesting is that media and fans alike were asking him to do this last year, but he did not, holding steadfast to certain position players just because of who...

Dodger brass were close to firing Mattingly, creating a horrid narrative, imploding blogosphere

Yesterday, in a bit of candidness, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly admitted to the press that he was on the verge of being fired earlier in the season, and that he knew that because he was told so directly by president Stan Kasten. “[Team president Stan Kasten] was really honest, because I think he didn’t want to do anything, but he says, ‘Donny, at some point I’ve got to do...
