Dodgers: Dave Roberts Expects to Get Through the Season (Dodgers Nation)



It’s a much better time to be a baseball fan today than it was a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, the happiness that we all felt with the news of an MLB season also came with doubts. Many have wondered whether or not the COVID surges will result in a canceled season, but Dodgers’ manager Dave Roberts remains hopeful. 

Roberts spoke with the media on Saturday morning and was asked if he thought MLB could finish up their season. The Dodgers’ skipper didn’t hesitate with his answer

I feel that we’re gonna get through it. I don’t think that our guys should think otherwise. But with that, we have to take precautions that we can and take responsibility for ourselves, our teammates.

With COVID cases rapidly spiking across the country, experts have started to worry that MLB will not be prepared. But based on the results of intake testing that were announced yesterday, baseball was more than ready. Less than two percent of the players and coaches tested came back with a positive result, which was much lower than expected. Despite that, the Dodgers and their manager know that keeping each other accountable is the first priority.
