Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman joins the Petros and Money show to talk about the loss vs. the Nationals, in the #NLDS, Game 5 pitching woes, Kershaw's struggles in October and the plans for offseason.
On Clayton Kershaw:
I talked to him right after. I felt really badly for him the competitor, the human. I watch in awe on how he prepares every fifth day. I think it was more coincidence that two of the worst sliders he threw all year was on back to back pitches. If he had thrown normal Kershaw sliders, we are sitting in St. Louis today about to play Game 3.
On Dave Roberts going to Kershaw Game 5:
It is a tough spot for a manager. But i do think in that alternate universe, if we take him out and go to somebody else and they give up back to back HR's, I do think the narrative is a 180 degrees different than it is today.
On if changes are coming upcoming offseason:
I don't know. We are approaching it with a really open mind. We will take time to really explore and do things to win those 11 games in October.
