    Marlins sure as hell played better without ol' Donnie managing this year...
    Less major injuries to their better players and good signings. Would have the same results possibly better if he had stayed

    I think Donnie just gave the BJ’s manager some bad advice.

    I don't know. Now that I think about it, the Marlins likely would've won 110 games had they kept Donnie and would've gotten a bye.

    162-0, and cancelled playoffs...just give Donnie his long overdue trophy to get him into the HoF

    SI reporting several teams looking at Donnie. They didn’t give any specifics. I’m not buying it.

    Is it SI or is it their new bullshit fan fed team specific type sites?
    I see so many bogus reports from "SI" now.

    I saw that about Melvin a couple of weeks ago. But they might trade Soto. And I think they might look to get rid of the contracts of Machado. Just have a feeling they might look to rebuild soon. Unless they sign a Kershaw and another bat. Also how will Melvin be any better with less talent in SF?

    SF doesn’t really have the talent to be good but I think Melvin might be able to get through to them in a way he was unable to do with the prima donna Padres.

    I have heard talk of Ohtani going there because of the talent they have.

    Matos, Luciano, Ramos and the young pitchers?  Hell Wilmer Flores gave u 20+ HR's.  Thats more than he ever gave the Mets.

    Don't count your Giants so low.

    sorry to muck up your mattingly thread, igot…

    I’m not sure I even want my giants to give ohtani what could turn out to be an albatross contract. is there any chance at all he re-signs with the halos? i’m afraid he’s gonna go to the d**gers. the rich get richer. even if the contract is an albatross, they have so much fucking money it won’t hurt them.

    as far as our young guys….they’re decent but we need them to be better than decent. with the exception of the clueless rockies, the NL West will continue to be tough, especially with the emergence of the d-bags.

    OK….back to donnie….I don’t see him getting a managerial job…not this year; maybe never again.

    Not sure why not ever? Worse managers have had more jobs. But I would say as more teams get more analytical they'll want to hire first time managers they can manipulate.

    It would suck with this many openings and not get an offer. I don't know if he's even looking. I haven't heard anything.

    I think he has learned to embrace it. He knows it's going to be a part of the game. I don't believe he's a full on analytics guy. There are still owners that are still allow old school

    I heard that they do that in the playoffs now and very little analytics.

    after googling the four remaining openings, the best hope I can give you is the milwaukee journal sentinel had donnie listed with seven other “bench coaches with managerial experience.”

    Not looking good. Hate the Astros but the best shot for any manager to make the playoffs. Brewers are in an easier division so that would be my 2nd. I like the Angels so wouldn't mind him going there. And then the Padres. 

    But since the Cubs just shocked everyone an fired Ross out of the blue. Here's hoping the Yankees do the same

    Best shot he has I guess is if the Blue Jays get off to a bad start. Then he can maybe take over. Unless they promote grounds crew guy over him

    When it is all said and done, I think we call agree that Preston Mattingly will go down in history as having a much bigger impact on the sport of baseball than any other Mattingly that has ever lived.

    If I knew the Cubs were looking. I would have liked for Donnie to go there. Imagine Eddie and Don on the phone discussing the lineups
