Yesterday, it was reported that Don Mattingly would be the Dodger manager regardless of how this season turns out.
"I think he's done a really good job of keeping it together and there's never an excuse. He doesn't give any and he doesn't take any," Colletti said. "I don't have any doubt that our efforts every day are there, and I think that's one of the main jobs of a manager, to make sure guys are into it.
Today, Jon Heyman is reporting that the Dodgers have reached an agreement with Ned Colletti, whose contract with the team had mutual options for 2013, for an extension for an unspecified amount of time.
Stan Kasten, Dodger President, has said repeatedly this year that he would never let on the contract status of his General Manager, reportedly he texted Jon Heyman earlier this year saying "I never discuss anything about my GM. He's here. Period.'' Kasten had also told the L.A. Times, "People should regard our management as stable and permanent.''
Mattingly is only signed for 2013, it is expected that Colletti will get at least two more guaranteed years (through 2014), so don't be surprised if sometime before Spring Training, the Dodgers extend Mattingly for another year.
