Don Mattingly had some harsh things to say about the club he manages on Wednesday afternoon, leaving many to guess that he might be officially canned at some point during Thursday’s scheduled team off day.
But that apparently will not happen. Via the Los Angeles Times:
Don Mattingly will be managing the Dodgers on Friday when they open a three-game series at home against the St. Louis Cardinals, according to two people familiar with the team’s plans.
“Do I feel worried?” Mattingly said. “No, not really. Should I be?”
The Dodgers beat the Brewers on Wednesday by a score of 9-2 but are still 19-26 on the season and will play a three-game series this weekend against the team with the best record and best run differential in baseball.
