The Dodgers are making progress on a Don Mattingly extension. The deal is expected to be done soon.
Mattingly understands he's the manager of a club with a massive payroll so he's expressed to the Dodgers his wish to avoid being a lame-duck manager in the last year of his contract. It looks like his wish will be granted. Anyone that can hold together this club of divergent personalities should be rewarded. ANALYST: Ray Flowers
At this point it is a forgone conclusion that Mattingly will be back with a good sized extension. The Dodgers will look to build upon what was a phenomenal ending to the 2013 season.ANALYST: Jeff Mans
Redskins are likely to pick up Robert Griffin III's option for 2016.
The true answer is "They better pick it up". The deal to pick up Griffin cost the Redskins a fortune so it shouldn't be that big of a surprise, even with the troubles he has had, that Washington is picking up the option for next year. He will have another year under Jay Gruden and his system before heading into 2016 so this might be a trade value season for RG3. Analysis: Rob Trayah
