The Los Angeles Dodgers got off to a strong start this year but after a handful of games, haven’t looked the same. After starting the season by winning their first two series, the Dodgers find themselves two games above .500 and behind the first-place San Francisco Giants by 8.5 games.
At the conclusion of the Dodgers’ 10-game homestand, Mattingly let his emotions get the best of him when he used an expletive to describe the slumping Dodgers. Prior to Friday’s game, Adrian Gonzalez and Matt Kemp were asked about their manager’s assessment and both players felt his comments were justified.
