Don Mattingly, Dodgers reach extension agreement to take him through 2016

Jan 7, 2014, 3:26 PM EDT

A deal is done:

Ken Rosenthal reports that the deal will cover three seasons — 2014-16 — which means tearing up the one year left on his current deal. Money is not reported yet, but we don’t always hear about manager money for some reason.

The Dodgers have gone 260-225 under Mattingly. And, so far anyway, he has kept Yasiel Puig from murdering anyone. So yes, an extension appears to be in order.

    Rosenthal the turd had reported that Mattingly was getting fired last season now he tries to make up for it by providing contract terms. If I was Mattingly I’d throw a couple of water buckets on him like Deion Sanders did to Tim McCarver!

      that was funny, Tim McCarver was mad his hair poof got flat.
      that was the best celebration ever!

        McCarver is STILL mad about that. I still get a chuckle about it.

    Dodgers did the right thing after discussing firing this guy.

    Now if only someone can stop this moron sports pundit Craig Calcaterra from murdering the truth. As always these morons make much ado about nothing, sorry a speeding ticket is a far cry from murder moron boy craig.

    Good that Mattingly got renewed, he’s done well for the Dodgers now that we got rid of that rich and greedy slime ball owner McCourt. Now there’s someone who damned near murdered the Dodgers.

    Yasiel Puig certainly has a lot to learn about being a responsible adult and professional athlete. I hope he has a great year helping the Dodgers win another title and shutting this clown craig up.
