07:14 AM ET 05.20 | Soon it may all be over in L.A. for embattled manager Don Mattingly. Now I'm convinced that Mattingly is going to get fired. ... The Dodgers were swept over their weekend in Atlanta, getting outscored, 16-8. Their bullpen allowed 12 of the runs. And Mattingly's postgame quotes were the equivalent of bad body language. ... [I thought], "Mattingly might be gone tomorrow." And then I got a text from a rival scout, one who has no particular insight into the Dodgers, but is attuned -- like so many in the sport -- to the game's day-to-day rhythms. "Making the call -- Donnie Ballgame will get the axe tomorrow," the scout said. When I asked the scout why he thought that, he replied, "Gut feeling. The way they've been losing."
