Comments I made on DodgerBobble and on Prince of NY's Baseball Blog are where this thought started.
Even if a court makes the McCourts sell the team, that is still a ways away. Don Mattingly will be the manager of an imploding infrastructure and look all the worse for it. Donnie Baseball is going to wind up as collateral damage out there and I wish he wouldn't take the manager's job because of it. He'll be a scapegoat for everything that WILL go wrong out there. Besides that, he's just not ready. Tim Wallach would have been a much better choice for L.A. They hired Tim as a coach for next year. One, Mattingly is already being shown he won't be bringing in his own staff. And two, this ensures Mattingly will officially have to look over his shoulder while trying to do his job. Donnie, please, ~ get out of there while you still have your reputation because the McCourts will ruin that too, as they've done everything else Dodger Blue; former power player of Baseball.
