This has been in the works since the end of the 2013 season, interrupted at times by awkwardness and stuff like his buddy Trey Hillman getting fired. But it’s a match that makes perfect sense. Even if everyone on the planet had Mattingly getting fired last June when the Dodgers were mired in a slow start.
