Don Mattingly's seven-season tenure as Miami Marlins manager was one of the most turbulent stretches of his career.
It all started with the terrible passing of Jose Fernandez, a local hero.
The COVID-19 breakout in the early days of the pandemic and CEO Derek Jeter's hiring and firing could not prevent the Marlins from making their lone postseason appearance.
Former New York Yankees hitting champion Mattingly, 61, came the closest to having a winning season in his debut year.
After acquiring the team from Jeffrey Loria, a consortium headed by Bruce Sherman installed Jeter and swapped Stanton for him.
Despite securing an extended postseason position, they were defeated by the Atlanta Braves in the division series after sweeping the Chicago Cubs in the first round.
