The Los Angeles Dodgers are making historical past with their poor begin, however supervisor Dave Roberts’ job seems to be protected.
General supervisor Farhan Zaidi stated Thursday that the staff’s entrance workplace has “confidence” in Roberts’ efficiency this season. The Dodgers entered Thursday 16-26 and in final place within the National League West. It’s the earliest the membership has been 10 video games below .500 since 1929.
“We, again, have all the confidence in him in the world,” Zaidi stated on Mornings With Keyshawn, Jorge and LZ on ESPN Los Angeles. “We said that during spring training when people asked about it. [We] haven’t seen anything in this first quarter of the season that has done anything to our confidence level with him.”
On Monday, staff president Andrew Friedman stated he’s accountable for the Dodgers’ early-season struggles — not Roberts.
“There is no doubt in my mind that he is the right guy to lead this team going forward,” Friedman told the Los Angeles Times. “The means our minds work is to not assign blame to anybody at this level. It’s to hunker down, all collectively, and attempt to remedy issues.
“I am very comfy in saying that, if we needed to assign blame at this level, it must be me who’s taking that, and never Doc.”
