One "issue" is Mattingly's insistence on bringing in Ron Bellisario at critical moments. The guy has proven his unreliability over and over again.
Maybe there's more to their relationship. I felt the same way about Brandon League.

Mattingly is well-liked by his players. That may be his only advantage.

Finally, I think Kenley Jansen doesn't get the attention he deserves. He may well be the next Mariano Rivera.

I agree; every time I've tuned in when Bellisario is inserted, he blows a lead and/or a save. Maybe Mattingly likes Bellisario's designer glasses or something, because his pitching performance basically sux.
