Don Mattingly To Return, Unless He Doesn’t

Dylan Hernandez:

Don Mattingly will manage the Dodgers next season.

“I always thought that,” team President Stan Kasten said. “Absolutely.”

Kasten’s comments were made Wednesday after Mattingly’s agent, Ray Schulte, said Mattingly intended to honor his contract.

Yet there’s no news about any possible extension, and Mattingly seemed pretty certain that he had no intention of returning as a “lame duck,” so I’m not sure if this is so much news as it is public posturing, or at least both sides trying to repair the republic relations damage that had been done this week. As I said earlier, the firing of Trey Hillman while the other coaches were retained didn’t exactly seem like the actions of a team setting up for a new manager, but it’s not like many of their other actions screamed “he’s staying.” So until we have a more solid answer, I consider this matter open… and frustrating.

You know there's no Dodger news when most of the comments are about something as repulsive as cats.  :P

Packing for my move from Seattle to Carson City, NV.  And getting more-and-more depressed as the end of the month approaches...

Beside pretty scenery, skiing (we ave those here) and In-N-Out Burgers, does anyone have any encouraging info about the Reno/Tahoe area for me?

@Lobo How can it not even mention that time when Peavy had dirty-hand against us in '07?

@Lobo If Lester gets bombed next start - that might be confirmation.

@NeDieterich Carson itself isn't too bad, has a small town vibe going for it. The area south of it is actually green, as opposed to desert brown every where else in this godforsaken state.

closer to SF, better opportunity to live on a house boat eventually.  Even better opportunity to live on a houseboat dry docked in the desserts of Nevada.

@NeDieterich Unfortunately, they didn't actually shoot Reno-911 there when it was on television. What a ripoff.

@NeDieterich @efb beautiful. It was so much fun watching the Cards eat shit that I decided I want the Sox to win with TFB going 0-21

@Batted Bob @NeDieterich 2005 preseason NFL - I was in Vegas and bet $50 on Seahawks at 35:1 to win Superbowl.  I was drunk.

They lost their only Superbowl ever that year because the refs cheated

@efb @NeDieterich I'm hoping for a sweep with each game the Cards getting pounded worse than the game before.

@DBrim Damn.  Thought the 'might ' would avoid the detractors.
