Mattingly botches game, is still the man

Managing the Phoenix Desert Dogs during an Arizona Fall League game in preparation for his first managerial stint with the Dodgers next season, Don Mattingly ran out of pitchers. I can’t say I’m surprised, but it is what it is. Let Aaron Gleeman, whose tone I didn’t care for, take it away because it’s too painful for me to explain.

This is the third gaffe Hitman has made while at the helm of a ball club. The Dodgers batted out of order one time this past spring training during a split squad game he was in charge of, and he also messed up a trip to the mound in mid-July which forced Jonathan Broxton out of the game (but that ruling was shady).

Regardless of how many times he duffs up a game he’s still my favorite athlete of all time and I’ll love him unconditionally (no homo).

On a lighter note, here is a picture of a goal post for the Pinstripe Bowl going up at Yankee Stadium.
