Manager Don Mattingly isn’t exactly enamored with the...

What Does Your Optimal Bullpen Look Like?

This is more about asking a question than about doing any deep, Brim-like analysis, but the bullpen has been a source of concern lately, and while there’s definitely some room to question Don Mattingly‘s choices, the bottom line is the players just aren’t getting the job done. (Shades of the 2014 playoffs, that.) The numbers aren’t really helping. Over the last 30 days, the...

Don Mattingly had choice words for yesterday’s umpire + banana things

Was Dodgers manager Don Mattingly happy with this umpire’s strike zone in last night’s game against the Giants? No, it does not seem like he was pleased with the “minor league ***************.

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.
