The Los Angeles Dodgers and manager Don Mattingly are working on a contract extension

The Los Angeles Dodgers and manager Don Mattingly are reportedly making progress on a new contract extension. 

Dylan Hernandez of The Los Angeles Times wrote on Jan. 6 that Mattingly was uncomfortable with this current contract situation, which keeps him in L.A. until after the 2014 MLB season. 

However, Mattingly is said to be satisfied with how his conversations with team ownership went, per Hernandez. 

"Don Mattingly and the Dodgers are moving toward a contract extension, according to a person familiar with the situation who spoke under the condition of anonymity because the deal hasn't been finalized.

"Mattingly, 52, is under contract for only next season. His deal became guaranteed for 2014 when the Dodgers advanced to the National Championship League Series. 

"Mattingly was uncomfortable with his lame-duck status last year, something he voiced in an awkward October news conference in which he said he might not return next season.

"At baseball's winter meetings last month, Mattingly said he stood by what he said in October. However, Mattingly described himself as 'comfortable' and said he was satisfied with the nature of his conversations with the team's owners."

Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com had a conversation with the Dodgers manager on Oct.21, 2013 to explain his lame-duck status. 

"This has been a frustrating tough year, honestly. I think when you come in with a club like this, basically as a lame duck, with payroll and the guys that you have, it puts you in a tough spot in the clubhouse. 

"We dealt with that all year long, and it puts me in a spot where everything I do is questioned. I'm basically trying out or auditioning. 

"To me we've reached that point, three years in you either know or you don't."

For his part, Alden Gonzalez of the Dodgers' official website spoke with Mattingly during the winter meetings to get his sentiments on the contract extension issue. 

"I love where I'm at. I'm proud to be representing the Dodgers and managing their club. We're in talks right now. Things are going good. No real hurry or rush for me at this point -- I don't think for the Dodgers, either."  

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal also confirmed the progress between Mattingly and the Dodgers when he tweeted on Jan. 6,"Dodgers making progress on Mattingly extension. Deal expected to be done soon." 

Mattingly took over as Dodgers manager in 2001, replacing Joe Torre. He has guided the club to three winning seasons ever since, amassing an overall record of 260-225 (.536). He was also instrumental in helping the team lock up the National League West title in 2013, per Mike Axisa of CBS Sports.

Los Angeles Dodgers: A laborious weekend

Sep 1 2014 12:58pm CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

Labor Day weekend should have been kind to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers entered the weekend with a 76-58 record, which was best in the National League. Coming off a two game sweep at Arizona, the Dodgers also had the best road record in baseball at 42-26. They were heading down to San Diego to face off against a team that was 13 games behind them in the West. However, the San Diego Padres are a very weird team. ...

Los Angeles Dodgers: The Legend of Joc Pederson

Aug 25 2014 9:16pm CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

On Saturday, Los Angeles Dodgers top prospect Joc Pederson accomplished something that hadn’t been done in 80 years in the Pacific Coast League. Pederson stole his 30th base of the season for the Albuquerque Isotopes, making him the first PCL player since 1934 to steal 30 bases and hit 30 home runs. Most Dodger fans are quite aware of the potential of Pederson. If the Dodgers didn’t have an abundance of highly paid outfielders, Pederson would undoubtably have a spot somewhere in the Dodger ...
