Prior to the Los Angeles Dodgers beginning postseason play, a report surfaced that a brief run could lead to front office changes. The Dodgers were eliminated in four games by the St. Louis Cardinals, taking a step back from 2013 when they reached Game 6 of the NLCS.

Naturally, plenty of attention was placed on general manager Ned Colletti and manager Don Mattingly for their respective roles in the Dodgers’ failure to reach the World Series. Colletti’s inability to improve the bullpen at the trade deadline affected the team in the postseason and it’s been his biggest indictment.

Mattingly’s in-game decisions have also been blamed for Dodger losses and some believe he too should be fired. After meeting with president and CEO Stan Kasten, Mattingly indicated he believes he’ll return next season. Mattingly also added that he doesn’t expect changes in the front office.
