Just saw this on Paul Francis Sullivan's Terrific Blog Sully Baseball
Here is what he had to say. (Well Done Sully)
What will this World Series have in common with every other World Series EVER?
Don Mattingly won't be involved in it.
I wrote a post last year about Mattingly's astonishingly bad luck in terms of getting into a World Series... and sadly the post remains relevant.
Chances are he'll be managing next season somewhere and David Lennon at Newsday has Donnie Baseball being a prime candidate for taking over the Indians job.
Wow, if there was a place that had WORSE post season karma than Don Mattingly IT'S CLEVELAND!!!
Maybe the bad karma will cancel each other out.
My Comment. I have a better idea, When Terry Francona retires I feel the Boston Red Sox should give Donny Baseball a 10 year Contract to manage the Boston Red Sox or at the very least put him in as a uniformed coach, As a Yankee Fan we can say with his record We as Yankee Fans will Love him forever and thank him for putting on a Red Sox Uniform. Thanks Sully for reminding me of the Mattingly Record (Curse) and for my inspiring me to come up with this idea.
