Last night, an ugly incident unfolded in Boston as Orioles outfielder Adam Jones -- an African-American -- was subjected to racist taunts from Red Sox fans.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts joined "Lunchtime" with Roggin and Rodney on Monday, and provided unique perspective as a minority manager that has spent time at Fenway park as both an opposing player and local hero.
"I played in Boston, and I loved my time there. I didn't have any incidents, even as a visiting player when I came in there before, let alone as a home player," Roberts said. "I don't know what triggered it. I know Adam is a great, great young man, so I don't think that was him initiating that. For me, I chalk it up as very unfortunate and I'd like to think it's just an isolated incident and not race-driven. I don't know. It's just very disappointing because he's such a great advocate for our game, and Boston is such a great city."
Listen below to the full interview below, where Roberts also discusses Cody Bellinger's impressive start, Hyun-Jin Ryu's trip to the DL and more.
