Don't be angry.
Has was a terrible manager.
I probably missed it, but does anyone know any details on his contract?
Like how long initially they are giving him?
Also, does anyone else wish more than ever that Dee was still here in light of Roberts hiring?
Considering DaRo's past, together with Dee = priceless... and excitement.
3 year contract with a 4th year option
"Sounds like enough time to get to the promised land", he said, half heartedly...
So what's the coaching staff gonna be?
Shawn Green, Alex Cora, Brian Jordan, and Paul Shuey?
I've had this weird lingering thought that Jim Tracy will be involved somehow, but idk. Tracy and Roberts have a close relationship, Tracy could serve as the experience on the staff. But idk, Tracy was offered the Padres bench coach gig and turned it down I believe, and who knows if he and the team are interested in a guy who was the Dodgers manager not TOO long ago to come back in a lesser role.
I'm not saying it's what I want, I'm just saying it's been in my mind that he makes sense on some levels to be a part of the staff in some capacity

Anybody know how he is as a game time strategist, especially when it comes to pitching use, shift plays, getting the right mix of players in the right situations?
Or is he a complete newbie on this as a skip?
jeff reboulet / hitting coach
omar daal / pitching coach
hiram bocachica / 1B coach
marquis grissom / 3b coach
odalis perez / bench coach
terry mulholland / bullpen coach
paul lodOucHEa / catching coach
wilkin ruan / conditioning coach
cesar izturis / strength coach
No job for Rafael Bournigal?
um, wrong decade
bournigal was gone 8 years before roberts became a dodger
I expect the game time strategy will be a collective effort with a lot of it coming down from the FO. Like all the shifts we did last year weren't Mattingly's idea, those were FO moves. It will be more important for Roberts to be an extension of the FO on game time strategy.
