  • New LIFE for Marlins 2016. a REAL COACH !!!!!

    Mattingly to be next manager of Marlins..

    Former Dodgers skipper agrees to 4-year deal (In five seasons in Los Angeles, Don Mattingly compiled a 446-363 record.)

    Don Mattingly has agreed to a four-year deal to be the next manager of the Miami Marlins, sources told MLB.com on Thursday. The club has not confirmed.

    Mattingly and the Dodgers mutually agreed to part ways on Oct. 22, one week after Los Angeles lost the National League Division Series in five games to the Mets. He led the Dodgers to three straight NL West titles over the past three seasons, notching a 446-363 record in five years with Los Angeles.

    The Marlins, meanwhile, haven't had a winning record since 2009, and Mattingly will be the team's eighth manager since the start of the '10 campaign. Mike Redmond began '15 as the Marlins' manager, but the team replaced him in May with general manager Dan Jennings, who returned to the front office after the season.

    Mattingly, a six-time All-Star during his playing career, won the American League batting title with a .343 average for the Yankees in 1984, and the following season, he won the AL MVP Award. Mattingly batted .307 with 2,153 hits and 222 home runs in 14 seasons with the Yankees.

    FROM ESPN Sources:

    Reports: Miami Marlins hire Don Mattingly as manager


    The Miami Marlins have hired Don Mattingly to be their next manager, according to multiple media reports.

    VICE Sports, citing sources, reported that the deal is for four years. The Associated Press reported that the official announcement likely will be made after the World Series.

    Mattingly stepped down as manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers on Oct. 22 with one year remaining on his contract. The Dodgers won 55 percent of their regular-season games in his five seasons (446-363).

    The Marlins began their search earlier this month, after it was determined that Dan Jennings would not return in the role next season. Jennings had made the unusual move from GM to manager when the Marlins fired Mike Redmond in May after a 16-22 start.

    The change failed to spark a turnaround, and the injury-riddled Marlins finished 71-91 in their sixth consecutive losing season.

    Mattingly led the Dodgers to three straight NL West titles, a first in franchise history.

            One wealthy businessman who approached the Marlins said Jeffrey Loria remains adamant that he’s not selling, but the person holds out hope he could change his mind after the team plays host to the 2017 All-Star Game.

            He said the Marlins indicated that if Loria sells, he would ask for $1 billion. Forbes estimates the team’s worth at $650 million.

                  It's the Yankees Way rubbing off on Mattingly. NYY let players have mustaches, but they could only be so long.
                  It does set you apart from other teams. when everyone on your team is clean-shaven except maybe for small mustaches while the opposing teams have long hair, beards and dreadlocks.
                  Does it help team "espirit de corps"......Perhaps.

                    1977 Cardinals under Vern Rapp. Real esprit de corps there...

                    Again...I'm waiting to see how long the harmony lasts. Funny how Mattingly had no problem with players wearing facial hair with the Dodgers...
