Andrew Friedman Comments On Future of Dodgers GM Position

Dodgers President of Baseball Operations Andrew Friedman has handled the offseason changes with honesty and direction. Friedman said that coaching vacancies would be filled, and shortly thereafter they were. Now, Friedman has provided us with an update on the vacant general manager position.

In short, Friedman told Pedro Moura that there will not be a hire made to fill the position which opened with Farhan Zaidi went to San Francisco.

Initially, Friedman left the possibility open of a replacement. Moreover, several names were mentioned internally. Now, Friedman cites a ‘chaotic’ past few months as a reason this won’t occur. One of those events was securing Dave Roberts to a multi-year deal.

Friedman Speaks to Alanna Rizzo

If one wants to know of the ‘chaos’ that has happened upon the Dodgers organization since the end of the 2018 season – Friedman speaks openly about it in the video above.

Friedman calls Roberts’ extension a ‘no-brainer’ and cites the manager’s optimism as a quality that will serve the Dodgers well moving forward. Moreover, Friedman seems genuinely pleased with where organization is at presently and the window ahead to win championships.

Analysis

Still, I continue to be impressed by the transparency throughout the organization. Namely, Friedman and Dave Roberts. If you follow the quotes – reading between the lines carefully each week – you have a pulse and a sense of what is next to come. The take-home message is the Dodgers will march forward in the immediate future without a general manager. Evidently, the decision makers feel comfortable that they can win a title without this position filled. The Dodgers are an organization filled with smart people who have won with regularity. We must trust the process.
