Amid front office turmoil, Mattingly has steered the Dodgers to a 31--36 record, 6½ games out of first place in the NL West.
Dan Patrick: How much fun are you having?
Don Mattingly: I love it. It's a challenge. Our guys are playing hard. We're in a division where it seems like no one is going to go off and hide. We have pretty good pitching, so we feel like we have a good chance to win.
DP: Has what's happening in the front office been a distraction?
DM: It hasn't been much of an issue for us at all. There was more of a soap opera last year.
DP: Did being in New York City and dealing with George Steinbrenner help you handle this?
DM: It helps. In New York there was always something going on. You really have to keep focused on what you can control.
DP: Best team you've seen so far?
