Will Dave Roberts be fired next week?

Last year, he lost in game six to the NLCS to the Cubs. this year, he lost in game 7 of the World Series. even though he stuck with his rotation, Darvish gave up five runs in the first two innings, and didn't even last that long. he then moved to Kershaw, and the bullpen, who all put up zeros.

it's obviously water under the bridge now, but, if he went to Kershaw to start it, and skipped over Darvish, do you think the Dodgers would've won? you can't predict what if's in this game, but the way Kershaw and the rest of the bullpen pitched, you have to wonder.

    I hope not. Because Brian Cashman is stupid enough to turn around and hire him and sign Darvish to a long term deal.

    If they are going to fire Dave Roberts, they should also fire the other 28 managers who failed to win the World Series this year.

      Not when a Game 7 is completely mismanaged and the best manager in the game, Joe Girardi is available they're not.

    No. But with the exception of Taylor, Forsythe and Pederson, the rest should be fired, including Darvish.

    No nor should he. Roberts is the best man suited to manage this team. Yes the dodgers will take crititcism for not winning the WS since 1988 and like the the Braves teams of the 1990's they took criticism for only winning one WS. Roberts got the most of his players and had to overcome several injuiries and to get to 104 wins with this team was amazing. Their rotation out side of Kershaw wasn't the best. Astros had the best with keuchel and Verlander 1 and 2 and considering Rich Hill and Alex Wood were signed as reclamation projects what he got out of them this season was great. They never should have traded for Darvish. He ddin not have a good year in Texas ethier. I think Robers just didnt manage his pen well enough and A.J. used starters in multiple innings in releif knowing that was not what they were use, to but he recognized he could not rely on his close Giles. But no I dont think Doc should or will be fired.
