I keep reading about Don Mattinglys option still not picked up for next year and hear his future is still uncertain with the Dodgers. If they let him go, would the Cubs hold off until they hear something about this? Or are the Cubs more focused right now instead of a "what if" scenario. I've always loved him as a player and he's done pretty well as a manager. I feel he could connect with the younger players and help mold their potential. Would love to see him in cubbie blue

No. Mattingly is an idiot. Maybe he's good in the clubhouse, I don't know, but I'd kill myself if I had to deal with his in-game strategy.

Mattingly has a better chance of being re-hired by the Dodgers than the Cubs.  He is an incredibly old school manager.
