Moments into his introductory news conference Monday with the Miami Marlins, Don Mattingly peeled off his sport coat to try on a team jersey for the cameras.
"I'm hoping I'm not sweating underneath," he said with a smile.
Mattingly hasn't lost a game yet, and he's already feeling the heat. That's the nature of working for impatient, impetuous Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria, who's now on his seventh manager since June 2010.
But Mattingly, hired after five seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers, is optimistic he'll end the Miami managerial merry-go-round.
"I signed a four-year deal, he said. "I plan on being here at least 10."
