It’s also important to maintain some consistency in the organization during the upheaval that can take place in transitions between managers. Sometimes, change for the sake of change can be more damaging than simply staying the course.

First and foremost, I love everything Los Angeles. I was born and raised as such. There is video of me, hardly a year old, saying my version of "goooo Dodgers" as my parents cheered alongside me. I could not possibly be more proud to hold this position as we at DodgersNation look forward to enhancing the Dodgers fan experience in any way we possibly can.
