Note to Dave Roberts


1 win and it’s over....do NOT remove ANY pitcher that is “on”

So Dave Roberts is up 3-2 in the series...has lost last two World Series and is pitching Gonsolin who is 0-2 with a 9.3 era this postseason.


You don’t want game 7 with an underdog.

As long as Roberts is the manager for LA, I don't think I'd call TB the underdog if it goes 7.

It’s funny that you think Cash makes better decisions.

Pulling Snell. Jesus fuc...

The most obvious dumb move I think I’ve ever seen. Snell was rolling and dominating the top 3 next up batters...to think those batters didn’t want him out of the game.


No feel whatsoever...just fucking cuteness

MVP?

Had Kershaw after last game. But think Seager gets it, though Mookie is close. He could steal (see what I did there??)  it with his signature moments despite not being quite as good at the plate as Seager.

The Justin Turner - Covid thing is strange.

So Turner tested positive...then second positive came back and Dodgers were instructed to remove him in the 2nd inning.....thy didn’t and were forced to remove him later in the game and he was instructed to not return. He of course returned with mask for celebration with mask....but then removed mask for team pic.


We’ll see I guess but again, I simply don’t care. Twitter going silly.

Yeah, that was utterly stupid and he deserved to lose off that decision.

The season is over, so I'm not quite sure what the fuss is all about.  Potentially, some older coaches and team officials who would have been put at risk.  That's on him and them - the MLB protocol, IMO, ended the moment the season did.

I don't even think he should be fined.  If someone gets seriously sick as a result of his actions, that will be more than punishment enough.

Just the timing of it all is bizarre to me. He played up until the 6th inning or so right? Why do a test that won’t be resulted til damn near the end of the game. “Hey we’re gonna do this test and hope it’s negative because you’ll spend all day around your team before we know the result of it”

Not exactly. The test was inconclusive. Then, the one from the current day was positive. From my understanding, he wasn’t supposed to be in the game and mlb asked him to be removed in the 2nd inning which didn’t happen. When the test came back positive, he was removed.

Regardless, it was a cluster and awful preparations for it all. No shock Manfred/MLB had a poor plan.
