Although the Dodgers were known to be fond of Mattingly, the club's new front office inherited him as manager. Now, the organization will have an opportunity to hire a new manager after falling to the Mets in the National League Division Series.
Since taking over for Joe Torre, Mattingly has gone 446-363 under Mattingly's leadership. The front office did not address a lack of rotation depth and bullpen help. As a result, Mattingly was left to work with what he had.
While Owner Mark Walter might be fond of Mattingly, the Dodgers are now set to head in a different direction.
