Off With Dave Roberts’ Head – I’m Done!

Every manager will frustrate the fan base at times, but Dave Roberts turns that up to 11 every postseason.

The man cannot handle the pitching part of the game, so he’s got to go.

I was born in the shadow of Dodger Stadium and immediately drenched in Dodger Blue. Chavez Ravine is my baseball cathedral, Vin Scully was the golden voice of summer all my life, and Tommy Lasorda remains the greatest Dodgers manager ever. My favorite things are coffee, beer, and the Dodgers beating the Giants. I also blog about my baseball card hobby at All Trade Bait, All the Time.

  1. I never ever ever thought I would entertain the criticism of Dave Roberts. I have argued the count point that he doesn’t hit, catch or throw the ball. The players have to execute – and they DO have to.

    We all want someone to blame for the 2019 early exit and there is PLENTY of blame to go around. Bellinger, Seager and Pollock did diddly squat offensively. A few extra points to Belli for his defense, as always. Kersh was (UGH, hate to say it) typically poor in the post season. Kenley didn’t fail but all of us get nervous now when he comes in. Baez was Baez.

    Dave is obviously plenty competent during the regular season and the players are plenty talented to achieve record wins. BUT there is enough evidence now that Dave Roberts is just too poor at making critical decisions in the post season. I wish him nothing but future success but I hope he isn’t extended….even though I think it’s likely because I highly doubt he decides the post season strategy alone. Nor makes the post season decisions alone. Andrew Friedman needs someone to carry out his direction and Dave has been willing. He’s too loyal to vent to the media if he’s unhappy with those decisions.

  2. Dan, not only is Roberts unable to manage a pitching staff in the PS but the other teams that made the playoffs showed the world that they are better than the Dodgers offensively and in pitching. that’s the reason for the early exit. as Russo on High Heat on MLBN says, Dodgers simply have good interchangeable players but NO great players, hence we are in the off season with this team.
