On the most recent episode of Ross Stripling and Cooper Surles’ ‘Big Swing Podcast’, they sat down with ESPN insider Jeff Passan to discuss the off-season.
As part of the episode, Passan eventually interrogated Stripling as any good journalist would do. He asked about his view of the way the Dodgers have handled the off-season and Stripling is still maintaining hope. Here is the link to the full episode of the Big Swing Podcast:

Stripling gave direct mention of Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman and credited him for raising an excellent young core of ballplayers. Many of the Dodgers’ biggest stars are homegrown players or were once diamonds in the rough.
“It is just the nature of the beast. We have won seven straight NL Wests but no World Series. You have a fan base that wants us to get over the hill, but you have a president in Andrew Friedman who can really develop guys and knows that we probably don’t need to make any moves and still win 100 games.”
