New Dodgers utility man, Kristopher Negron joined ChangeUp on DAZN to discuss his impressive start with the Dodgers.
Q: In the World Series, with this Dodgers team, have you wrapped your mind around that yet? What it would be like for you?
A: I actually haven’t thought that part forward, to be honest with you. I’m just taking it one day at a time, but that would be pretty sweet, I’m not going to lie. But, if it comes down to that, you know it would be go Dodgers all the way.”
Q: Let us think about the parade, Hollywood sign in the background, how great would that be?
A: It would be unreal. It’s something that anybody would love to be apart of, and coming here, just seeing the tradition, and the history, and just kind of feeling that here at Dodger Stadium, has been pretty surreal.
Q: In all seriousness, this is the best you have played in the big league level, would you agree?
A: Yeah, absolutely. Oh yeah.
Q: What has been the process to get to this point in this stage of your career, really turn things around and make such a big impact at this level?
A: There has been a lot of years grinding, I’m not going to lie to you, but yeah I have just been trying to stick to my craft and keep my glove sharp, and trying to evolve as a hitter. The way this game is changing, you just got to adapt and adjust, and I have been able to that as I’ve gotten older, and you can see I have got quite a few gray hairs over the years, but it’s well earned.
