MILWAUKEE, WI - MAY 22: Manager Don Mattingly #8 of the Los Angeles Dodgers watches the start of the first inning from the Dodgers dugout against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park on May 22, 2013 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
I don't know how many managers I had in New York ... I was the guy who didn't get fired. If your team doesn't play well, somebody's going to go -- and it's not going to be [the players]. It's all about the way we play. It's the only thing I stress over: how our club is playing and how we go about our business. I'm the guy who sets the environment. I haven't wavered in anything I believe in.
Guys in that room who play the game right don't have a problem with anything I'm saying ... I can't even come close to backing off anything I said the other day. I feel exactly that way. I've been talking like this with these guys the whole time.More quotes »
