"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.
