Dodgers Analyst Discusses Freddie Freeman’s Unmatched Consistency

As the year has gone on, the Dodgers have seemed to get better. They had some uncharacteristic struggles early on in the season with their pitching staff, but they have pushed through the adversity and now sit as one of the best teams.

It has been impressive to see this team take that next step in maturity this season, after an offseason that saw them lose a lot of talent. LA was supposed to be taking a “step-back” year, but they decided that they didn’t like that narrative. 

It speaks to the leadership of the guys in the clubhouse, and they are led by their All-Stars. Both Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman have led by example this season, and it has helped this team get through the tough times. 

Freeman especially has been incredible to watch this season, showing his consistency at every turn. It has been a calling card of the veteran for years, and the Dodgers have been the benefactors of it since he arrived. 

Dodgers analyst for Spectrum SportsNet LA, Jose Mota, recently spoke with our very own Doug McKain and gave his thoughts on Freeman this season. You can watch the entire video here!

“Freddie doesn’t take a play off. Freddie is a factor on the bases, running the bases, the stolen base, defensively positioning and scooping some balls off the ground for his infielders. On top of that, Freddie likes taking the extra base … What Freddie brings every single day, man, is just unmatched. Especially because he doesn’t like to rest.”

When the Dodgers signed Freeman, they knew that they were getting a true professional. He is the kind of player that emulates what being a Dodger is all about.

On the year, he is hitting .336 with 25 home runs and 91 runs batted in. Freeman has put himself into contention for the NL MVP award this year with his play, and the team is going to be relying on him heavily down the stretch. He leads all of baseball with 80 extra base hits including a Dodgers franchise record 53 doubles.

If he can keep up this level of production, the Dodgers will be a very scary team in the postseason. Freeman wants to do whatever it takes to help his team win, and he is focused on winning a World Series in Los Angeles.
