Mattingly -- Pumped About the Dodgers, Except for ...

9/20/2010 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Soon-to-be Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly claims he's "pumped up" for next season -- but admits there's one personnel issue he's "sad" about ... involving the player he went to dinner with last night.

Mattingly rolled through BOA in West Hollywood with Dodgers backup catcher Brad Ausmus ... and harped about how heartbroken he is that Ausmus is leaving the team next year.

The big question is -- think the Dodgers have a realistic shot at the pennant with Donnie Baseball at the helm?!

I think the only shot they got is if the current owners sell the team. Especially to an owner who doesnt finance home purchases from loans where the parking lot was used as collateral.

It's more than just who's at the helm. The team members and the whole organization, including the feuding owner/owners must be accountable.
