Any clue why Jeter and Ng like Mattingly so much ? they don't afraid he would makes a good roster looking bad ?

I think Donnie did prove why he was a good hire. He did a lot right here. Them liking Don isn't the problem.

The problem is them being too stubborn to move on when it's clear Donnie's time is up here. Most managers have a shelf life and sometimes the team just needs a change. That time is already here for the Marlins. This doesn't make Donnie's prior time here a waste either. He did a lot for this team but he's already peaked and passed his best days with the Marlins.

He's relatively young as a manager so I don't think he's too old to be a good manager but just inability to succeed. 

 

It's not that, it's not his age and he can still be a successful manager elsewhere, this isn't a total knock on Donnie himself, or at least it shouldn't be.

Donnie's strengths are clubhouse management, sticking up for his players. teaching young players how to work hard and play the right way, he's a great mentor to young players... stuff like that.

He's already done all of that for the Marlins and he can definitely still do that for another team if the opportunity arises.

But now the next step is turning the Marlins into a consistent on-field winner and Donnie has a whole bunch of decision making issues that are now preventing the Marlins from doing that.

So Donnie was great here for a long time... but it's time to make a change... this doesn't mean Donnie can't still be a successful manager and it doesn't mean that Donnie hasn't done great things for the Marlins. It doesn't even mean Donnie is a "bad" manager.

It just means Don Mattingly likely isn't the right man to lead the Miami Marlins anymore.

I think you mean he's a “rebuilding mode ” manager and not a “competing mode” manager, if that's the case then Ng needs to create a “Dodgers caliber ” roster to offset his “bad decisions ” if he's the manager of the next season.
