It was an interesting week for the Dodgers and their fanbase. Despite moving on to the National League Division Series, fans couldn’t really get over the ESPN broadcast and how terrible they were. In fact, at one point they accused Los Angeles pitcher Walker Buehler of cheating. Let’s dive into some of the wild news from around the team this week.
The ESPN broadcast was so desperate for some sort of ratings boost that they stooped to accusing the Dodgers of cheating. Listen in as Eduardo Perez pulls out exact rules from the MLB rulebook to cite his concern for Walker Buehler using a substance on his blister.
Speaking of ESPN, Dave Roberts has had it with those terrible in-game interviews. Doc revealed that he will no longer allow his guys to be wearing mics and doing interviews while they are on the field this postseason.
In more outrageous news, Astros outfielder Josh Reddick found a way to anger Dodgers fans even more than he already has in his miserable career. The Houston outfielder made fun of the lack of fans that were waiting for the Astros to arrive at Dodger Stadium back in September.
Back to the team, Dave Roberts had some interesting comments about Kenley Jansen following his Wild Card appearance versus Milwaukee. Doc described Kenley’s stuff as having ‘no teeth’ and that he would have to look at film. He later backtracked on his statement, but Brusdar Graterol got the 9th inning in game 2.
In much sadder news, former pitcher Charlie Haeger was wanted this week in connection to the murder of his girlfriend. Unfortunately, Haeger was later found dead at the Grand Canyon from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. An incredibly sad story.
In much happier news, fans may get to go see the Dodgers in the World Seris this October. It looks like tickets are set to go on sale this week!
