• Mattingly to return as Dodgers' manager in '14

    Summary of 18 articles · Updated Oct 18, 2013
    The Dodgers finished third and second in Mattingly's first two seasons in charge. "We don't feel like he's getting any worse," Mattingly said. This is the first year the Dodgers have reached the postseason under Mattingly, whose only previous managing experience was during one stint in the Arizona Fall League. There were intense rumors of Mattingly's imminent firing in May when the Dodgers and their $230 million payroll were in last place. Manager Don Mattingly said he expects Hanley Ramirez and Andre Ethier to be in the Dodgers starting lineup Friday for Game 6 of the National League Championship Series , although he sounded more confident about the outfielder with the broken leg than the infielder with the broken rib. So, even if Mattingly's proverbial tongue is just planted in a cheek somewhere, he certainly is right about one thing: The NLCS has been fun, and extending it to the nth degree is what everyone should want. Ellis also hit solo homers for the Dodgers, who got into the fence-swinging spirit after being held homer-less in the first three games of this series.
