The Dodgers hired a new manager yesterday, and predictably most of today’s chatter around the team revolves around that. Oh, and there are free agency rumors too. Can’t miss those.
- As you already know, the team hired Dave Roberts as its next manager.
- Roberts called the job the “opportunity of a lifetime.“
- Gabe Kapler, who was one of the managerial finalists, praised Roberts.
- The hire has been given a big thumbs up by fans.
- Our Brian Robitaille wonders how Joc Pederson can bounce back from a rather disappointing finish to his 2015 season.
