Miami Marlins agree to contract extension with manager Don Mattingly

The Miami Herald has confirmed that the Miami Marlins have agreed to a contract extension with manager Don Mattingly.

The terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.

The news, which was first reported by Extrabase’s Daniel Alvarez, is expected to be made official at a pregame news conference Friday before the first game Marlins’ final home series of the season against the Washington Nationals.

Mattingly, the longest tenured manager in Marlins history, is 272-364 with 10 games remaining in his fourth year with the franchise.

What, they aren’t going to trade him for some prospects that will never have any value so that Jeter can buy another boat?

Who has the worst team in Miami? It’s a close call

MIAMI (AP) — The Dolphins look like the worst team in the NFL, perhaps ever, and might even be the worst team in Miami.

On the other hand, a comparison with the Marlins is one matchup the Dolphins could win.

A consideration of various aspects of ineptness.

Is Diamondbacks pitcher Zac Gallen the latest star sent packing by Derek Jeter’s Marlins?

NEW YORK — Zac Gallen had just moved into his Miami apartment.

Two weeks later, he needed to move out.

A day after making his seventh career start with the Marlins and lowering his ERA to 2.72 with seven innings of two-run, eight-strikeout ball, the rookie right-hander was summoned to manager Don Mattingly’s office.

Gallen, who was just beginning to get acclimated to his new surroundings, initially assumed the coaching staff wanted to go over his last outing. But the Marlins had other plans on July 31 — and they weren’t sending Gallen back down to the minors.

Question- what do we do when Betteridge’s Law points to one answer to a question and what we’ve seen of the Marlins in action points to another?

Jeter noncommittal on Mattingly’s future as manager

MIAMI (AP) — His club seemingly headed to a second consecutive last-place finish in the NL East, Miami Marlins CEO Derek Jeter isn’t ready to disclose whether manager Don Mattingly will return next season.

“There hasn’t been a decision yet,” Jeter said before Miami hosted the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night. “To be honest with you, we’ve been so focused on the trade deadline and see what we could do with it.”

“At the end of every year, we sit down and evaluate all members of the organization, whether it’s the manager, coaches, player development, scouting, front office,” he said.

Mattingly is in the final year of a four-year contract. The former Dodgers manager was hired by ex-owner Jeffrey Loria prior to the 2016 season.

On the one hand, Jeter clearly isn’t the loyal sort- but, on the other hand, he seems to be running out of people willing to serve as henchmen….
