Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that Don Mattinglys option for next season vested when the Dodgers won the NLDS, but the manager is dropping some pretty strong hints that he doesnt want to go on without an extension beyond 2014.
Mattingly told a group of reporters that the option vesting doesnt mean Ill be back and added that well talk about it and go from there and I love it here, but I dont want to be anywhere Im not wanted.
In other words, he wants to be under contract for more than one season.
