Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly joined the show to talk about pitching Clayton Kershaw in Game 4, the possibility of a contract extension, Yasiel Puig’s play, Matt Kemp’s health, Derek Jeter’s dating history and what’s next in the postseason.
Mattingly wouldn’t say much about his expectations for a new contract. “You do your job,” Mattingly said. “People realize it is good or bad. I’m proud of our team. … That tells the story. I don’t need to talk. … When we were struggling. I was up in the air because my team wasn’t playing well.”
Mattingly explained why Kershaw is so hard to hit. “He’s a tough matchup,” Mattingly said. “He can get to your weakness.”
