Mattingly happy he'll return to Dodgers in 2013
LOS ANGELES -- The majority of the Dodgers will be back next year and so will manager Don Mattingly, who said he is definitely excited the team isn't planning on cutting ties with him.

"I love what I'm doing and I like it here," Mattingly said. "I'm pretty vocal that I like it. At that point, if they don't want you here, then you don't want to be here anyway. I say the same thing with my players. If they don't want to be here then I don't want them to be here. That being said, I'm happy."

Mattingly, who replaced Joe Torre after the 2010 season, has led the Dodgers to a 157-149 record in two seasons, and he's under contract through 2013.

The even-keeled manager had the Dodgers one game back in the National League Wild Card chase entering Saturday's game.
