"Roberts joins us on sports byline the dodger manager in his third season, and of course, the dodgers won the National League pennant but the Astros in the world series and he was an outfielder who played ten seasons with the Indians dodgers, red sox padres, and the giants, and of course, he won a World Series Championship with the Boston. Red Sox in two thousand and four ending an eighty six year championship drought for Boston and of course, best known for his stolen base off Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning of game four of. The two thousand four AL C. Red Sox Yankees series which was special on notable play is often simply referred to as the Steel Dave I wanNA take you back you grew up in a multicultural military family. Now, I grew up in a military family as well and running lot Ni- of talked about that. There is something about that dynamic that makes I think everybody that goes through it a little bit different because they had to move around they had to adapt they had to make new friends what was it like for you? I I think that I can echo that You know my childhood, my sis my. my father served our country thirty years numbering core that my mom and Japan and they got married over there. So yes, it was kind of every three years you sort of pick up and move. So you're meeting new friends and establishing you know relationships in school and literally James and Pop Warner that three years later, you can move and do the same thing all over. But I think that you know as I look back it definitely helped me and try to simulate with New People. Also, I would assume and correct me if I'm wrong about this dave now that you're a big league manager and you have to deal with twenty five different personalities and Egos in the clubhouse, it may give you a better way of handling it because you've had to do that almost your entire life. Yeah. I it it has, and I think that some of my personality or maybe a lot of my personality was formed because of that and having to kind of four different relationships you know cultivate them differently and As a player as a coach and as a manager. Absolutely there's twenty five different personalities and coaches as well. You can add to the list and and just kind of trying to manage everybody and still find a way to get the most out of each person and connect with them. What did you look for when you were playing the game and also when you became a coach say down in San Diego what did you look for as far as building the possibility of being a big league manager? Well I think that for me buddy black is a friend and mentor manager. Now up a Colorado rockies who really I watched him closely. and. How he related to players coaches media. Front office and. It was really something for me that helped and kind of trying to learn and find my way. But also there's other managers that I played chafe. Francona. Bruce Bocce in kind of understanding how they kind of manage their club. You know you mentioned bud black I knew him when he was with the giants and I've known him for a long time and he had the same similar trait that the late Bill Walsh had I was the play by play announcer at Stanford when bill was there the first time and so I got to know him very very well and the key. To both of those men was their ability to communicate in the right way to their athletes their players in everything. Am I right on that and is that a strong point and being successful as a manager absolutely absolutely and I think that that's you know me growing up appearance San Diego but always really admiring bill lauch and his forty nine football teams and how they went about things professionally. But yeah, you could always see that connection with him in the players and and I think that buddy definitely is very similar in that respect and also the way that buddy. And I try to be very consistent with my my Tude and how I react to certain things and I think as funny as I get a lot of. People ask me how I respond and how I hold it in what things don't go well for our team, our players but it's kind of you really got to try to kind of manage that. One of the things I always appreciate it about bill is his ability to push the buttons in the right way. I, use the word manipulation and there's nothing wrong with that because I think you have to know how to manipulate to get the best out of your athletes is that something that you've learned and especially in a vast locker room where you've got twenty five guys in there that it's a real challenge to you to be able to push the right buttons at the right time. I think so and you know and I'm continuing to learn that and I think it's just more relief knowing your personnel and no one's was more prepared than Bill Walsh and you've got to be prepared and the information, and so you kind of. Layer the knowing the players and what their capabilities are at the information and also taken opinions of coaches, and then your gut and try to make a decision at a certain time and went to poke pitcher when the pension for a guy went to call it run or when the but not to fun things like that or kind of take your hands off the wheel. So there's a lot of different times but I, Kinda use all those different things and they decisional. Dave. Let me take you back to Boston two thousand four when you do when you're World Series Championship that series was a very interesting one because of the Yankees. Jumping out in front and the and the red sox coming from behind. But when you think about that entire series, what is it that sticks out in your mind the most. I think the thing was after games three, we got pounded and. I just didn't see any panic in our guys the players, the coaching staff at. All around us, it was a lot of negativity a lot of delays but I think inside the clubhouse. There was a calm. And I think that's probably the thing that stands out most and then so our ability to still focus on winning one game at a time and we're able to do that throughout that series and turn that turn the tide in the AFC with the pressure back on the Yankees and went back to the York. Even down three two at that point in time. But the win the next two games in New York so you know the pressure was off of us and on them and then the wind force straight in the world series. So I think that's probably it that way we just didn't panicked..

Dave now that you're a big league manager and you have to deal with twenty five different personalities and Egos in the clubhouse it may give you a better way of handling it. Because you've had to do that almost your entire life I it has and I think that some of my personality or maybe a lot of my personality was formed because that and having to kind of Four different relationships. You know Cultivate them differently and yeah as a player as a coach and as a manager. Absolutely there's twenty five different personalities and coaches as well you can add that to the list and and just kind of trying to manage everybody and still find a way to get the most out of each person and connect with them. What did you look for when you were playing the game and also when you became a coach say down in San Diego? What did you look for as far as building the possibility of being a big league manager?

Don't go well for our team our players. But it's kind of you really got to try to kind of manage that one of the things. I always appreciate it about. Bill is his ability to push the buttons in the right way. Now I use the word manipulation and there's nothing wrong with that because I think you have to know how to manipulate to get the best out of your athletes. Is that something that you've learned and especially in vast locker room where you've got twenty five guys in there that it's a real challenge to you to be able to push the right buttons? At the right time I think so And you know and continue to learn that and I think it's just more overly knowing your personnel And no one's was more prepared than bill. Walsh and you've got to be prepared and the information and so you kind of layer. The knowing the players and what their capabilities are at the information and also take opinions of coaches and then your gut and try to make a decision at a certain time and Wendo poor pitcher when to pinch hit for guy win the call run or not like that or kind of take your hands off the wheel so there's a lot of different times but I kinda use all those different things decisional Dave. Let me take you back to Boston. Two thousand four when you do when you're World Series Championship That series was a very interesting one because of the Yankees jumping out in front and the and the red sox coming from behind. But when you think about that entire series what is it that sticks out in your mind. The most I think the thing was after game three. We got pounded and I just didn't see any panic in our guys The players the coaching staff. And I think that all around us. It was a lot of negativity a lot of delays. But I think inside the clubhouse there was a calm and I think that's probably the thing that stands out most and then so our ability to still focus on winning one game at a time and we were able to do that Throughout that series and turn that Turn the tide in the Al. She has put the pressure back on the Yankees and went back to The York. Even down three two that point in time but the win the next two games in New York south You know the pressure was off of us and on them and Then a win four straight in the world series so I think that's probably that we way we just didn't panicked. I WanNa ask you about the steal from this perspective. I've often said Michael Jordan said to me one time that when the game is on the line. I WANNA be the one to determine the outcome if I fail. I'll take the blame. If I succeed I want the glory and I think you know not all people are even all athletes are comfortable about being in that position and too often heard that that you it almost been given the green light to go when you thought it was the right thing to do and I always felt that steele was a reflection of who you were. You were not afraid to fail. Am I correct in that observation? That's true thank you very much. I appreciate that and I think it just goes with You know it was preparation. Me Talk it's one of those things and I really prepared for that moment and I was ready for it. We were all on a great team with a great group of guys and I had an opportunity to do something productive to help us potentially win a baseball game. And Yeah you can't be afraid to fail. And so obviously if I didn't feel the confidence with the preparation and work zone out when we'd probably lose clues game four and get swept and I could be to go to that situation But Yeah to have success. You have to put yourself out there. Is it a simpler time Say Ten fifteen years ago to play professional sports than it is today because of all the social media and all the things that are being imported into the game and into people's lives it's really different vastly different I I think the information I think that The coaching staff the players getting now at their disposal is completely different as heightened As well as like you said yeah the social media and I think that everyone now has a platform and so it's tough on the players. I think it's tougher head coach or a manager in this day and age where I think that there's so many real time opinions and You know so if it doesn't go well then it Kinda continues to build momentum but I it's still again though. It's it's the best time because there's so much awareness and with that real time social media awareness. I think that more people have interest in in our games. How hard is it Dave to blend Twenty-five guys into a workable unit of twenty five and starting nine it takes a buy in it. It takes consistency with communication And there's gotTa be a trust. And obviously where each athlete is trying to provide for him him and his family And trying to reach personal goals but that the tricky part is try to melt that with Ultimately the team goal and I think for me is I just challenged players on. The team has got to be the number one goal and make these guys. 'cause you know as an as an athlete that's what you want to hear. That's what athletes say and for me. Just hold each guy to that standard and you can get guys to buy into one another and the team that you got a chance so Fortunately with the dodgers we have a great front office and we get guys that that really understand what the dodgers are all about and general manager manager relationship. How crucial is that today to the game and having success on the field it is and that's another thing that's really changed where we look ten fifteen years ago There was a lot more autonomy with manager. Head coach is but I think for me I it's really challenged me to really Justify things that I've done it prepares you more and we debate a lot of things you know whether it'd be roster in game strategy some things like that and there's always conversations and Our office wants to win just as much as we do on the field. So it's great for me and our front office. Those are some of the best friends that I haven't again Dave. Thanks a lot for joining us. Based on Dave Roberts dodger manager. Of course they won the dodgers the National League pennant in two thousand seventeen but then lost in the world series to the Astros. He was an outfielder for ten seasons with the Indians. Dodgers Red Sox padres and giants. We've.

"Didn't when they didn't. Well, you know, it's it's a great feeling having been there and lost one. Which is a terrible feeling and having been there on one one. Which is a great feeling. I know the difference. Okay. Now, it takes the same thing to get there and loses that does to get there and win, you know, the teams in fact, my eagle team did works five years to get there. And then we didn't win it. Whether Rams took three years to get there and win it. So exhilaration. It's a humbling feeling as well. It really is. Because all of a sudden, you start encompassing. All the feelings of all the people involved starting with your own family coaching staff, your players, but on to your city your ownership. It's a it's a come together moment. Believe me who speaking with great dig for meal about the Super Bowl past and present. And this remarkable patriots run since the beginning of the century. And so much has been said about it so much has been written about it. The genius Bill. Bella check the genius of Tom Brady. Did you ever think in this day and age with the way that the league has been built upon a foundation a perpetuating parody that we would see such consistent excellence ever from a franchise. The way we have seen for the last seventeen eighteen years. I wouldn't have bet on it. Tough to do. You know? I just. Yeah. That's why you have to respect so much. What they have done starting with the ownership. And then right? There's a leadership. Belching drive the bus, you know. Whereas do it, you know, he doesn't call offense. He plays. He doesn't call the defensive signals. He makes all the decisions on a year round basis. Put him in a situation he sets the tone. You know, his mantra, you know, do the redo your job and he holds people responsible for doing their job. And they all know if they don't they're going to be there. So I mean, it's an amazing job of leadership. I think that they're going now to they're nights Super Bowl in this era under Bella check in with Brady a quarterback franchise had been to two Super Bowls previously in the eighties and the nineties. What does it say to you? I find it interesting that they've won five Super Bowls. They've lost three Super Bowls in this era in all of the games have been tight. You would have thought that just by virtue of the odds? The one of these games would have been a blow out and they've all been close games. What? What does it? What does that tell you about the patriots? And the way this team has been built, you know. I'm just echoing what already said it just shows outstanding leadership on a year round basis. You know, at shows outstanding ability to evaluate what has to be done after winning it last year or losing last year evaluating what kind of people can fill the void of those that are leaving or those that we wanna leave. You know, I nobody has been as successful. You know, Pittsburgh Steelers won four of 'em. You know, Bill lauch one three of them. They did real well but nobody's done. What Bella check is done in some of those people didn't stay in the league low for a long time after they started winning games. They retired. They went on Bill has stayed in. And obviously Brady has stayed with him, and he has lost anything. In fact, I think he's gotten better speaking with dick for meal and more important dick when you're are you going to be at the game? Or are you going to be watching it on TV? I'm going to be watching it on TV. And and what kind of wine will you be drinking? I'll be drinking for meal Rosedale block one hundred percent cabernet you can buy online by building for meal lines. And and of course, correct me if I'm wrong, you're a finalist for the hall of fame this year. So I'm not a finalist. I've been nominated here. But I have never made the finals. So but you were not among the finalists. Oh, no. How do you wrap your head around that? I I don't understand why you're not in the hall of fame. Well, thank you. That's a nice Cup on that. I don't vote. Okay. And obviously there's people that do folks don't think I belong here. So I'm not there. I don't lose it actually what we're I really don't if it happens. Great. If it doesn't I got out of my career National Football League my relationships with my owners, and my players so more than I ever dissipated getting out of my career. So I'm very appreciative of that and respectful of it. If if it ends up putting us in the hall of fame wonderful is going to be a lot of people that will go along with me. Oh, my. All my coaches. You know, they were all big part of it on looking forward to trying some of that one hundred percent cabernet sauvignon. Great things about it. Dick through meal, the legendary pro football head coach coach if the chiefs the Rams and the eagles, it's been a pleasure. Thank you so much for joining us here in the sporting life. You take care.

How are you preparing for this game a lot of socializing in the lobby bar that we're prepared? It's it's a fun week for all of us who live the weekly grind of the NFL, which obviously is in honor and a realty part of this league. And you know, where it stands on the sports landscape and our country of all the eyeballs and awareness, and but it also comes with the, hyper attentiveness in scrutiny. And then you get a week where we all can breathe for a moment and everybody gathers and everybody who is celebrating a successful year. And it's nice to socialize. It's nice to be together in a less pressure packed environment. And the catch up with all these guys. And you know, the one thing I will tell you is it does mean. So now, listen, I know players who just got done playing in the championship game or dealing with injuries and you'll get replacements, but for those who are here. And there are superstars here. It means a lot and this brotherhood and celebrating the game and going out there and doing your thing. And then especially for some that we had like even on the AFC side. Consider what's been overcome this year and to get back to moments like this of overcoming injury. I mean, we've got one of the great comeback stories of all with Andrew luck with the AFC and Shawn Watson baking his first Pro Bowl coming back from the tourneys yell. So we're thrilled to be here.

"The only loss was like three years ago. And here's the problem as well. With the the concept that this Atlanta defense is small so they'll be easy to run the ball on. This is a well coached group, and they got they got athletes that fly around. I don't care how big they are by the way last year twenty seventeen they were ninth in the NFL at stopping the run. They are a year better. They what it takes to stop. The run is a bunch of people who are doing their jobs there year better at doing that. And by the way, they fly to the ball. They are a good defense. I think this is a critical game for for JJ. I really do with falls struggles to me J is going to have to have a big big role in this game. Let's talk to Tom in Westchester, Tom. You're on wwl pay. Check. Well. Listen, he was he was fine. I actually thought he was going to say a different doctor from our area. But that's Aleve that Dr Jason biggie. Receiving designate known Richard Rodgers done for the year. I know I I don't think that's farfetched. He's better than what we have better than these guys. I. You don't know. Exactly. I mean, come on don't know what the punishment. Going to be agree. It's it's all predicated on if you feel like he's available to play. Also, the other thing I said was after he just crapped all over the eagles on national television and hard not come back and hang out Mike missed you. All right. So when Dell small would the apologies to seltzer. Right. So seltzer had when Dell small on the team, John. And I basically speaking of apologies, and I talked in issue an apology today. He kind of like moved in that zone. But then apologize. I'm wondering, do you think Richie is going to apologize to me for March April May June? When I kept saying, no sure bet at all. The Carson Wentz starts week one. Of criticism on the show from my co-host, or even seniors. Wrong. Wrong. What they're doing is wrong. Dhabi mad at me. I think that was the L crush your face. That was the I will crush your. That was like two years ago was another time where you guys are really getting into the brains thing and really really kept telling me you don't that injuries. And I'm like, well, you don't know about the protection of the player long-term, and he's gonna be ten fifteen years. And there's a good chance it'll be cautious right on this side wrong on that side. I just want us. Now, I'm playing around. I'm really, I'm really happy. They're doing this. Either guys. I mean, like, I can't be any more clear about it. I think it's such a slap in the face for Carson Wentz in and they're probably not gonna ever dive into that. You know Carson is gonna do the company guy. The the the stand up corporate hero and not even bring it up. But man, the amount of pain time effort, excruciating, focus, you know, that that it took for him to get back to where he is right now. And then to have, you know, well, we don't think you're ready. That is. I cannot. I I can't emphasize how deflating that must be regardless in west going to have to fight throw. He may. Well, obviously, I mean he made it his goal to get back to week one. He is able to be back in week one. And they won't let the metal. They're saying medically not clear. Here's the other thing. And and I thought you know, who's medically not clearing him doctors who don't want their head to be on a platter. Maybe. It was interesting though today at the press conference. We didn't address this right after Doug spoke. But one of the I thought perhaps most fascinating part of the press conference when Doug said something to the effect of Carson knows I think the quote was the longevity of his career. And then specifically referenced he, and I hopefully are in it for a long time and said that before. Yeah. So I I do think that played a dramatic role in this. If Carson Wentz was thirty eight years old, maybe he won't be this spry at this stage. But if he was thirty eight and had one year left in his career. I think they might roll him out there, but they are trying to protect what they believe can be the Aaron Rodgers of the next ten to twelve years in pro football, and I respect and I'll simply say, frankly, appreciate the taking a cautious approach would I be more excited walking into that stadium. Thursday night knowing the Carson is going to be under center. Yes. But listen I want to walk in that stadium for the next ten to fifteen years and have Carson Wentz under center? I think it's pretty amazing there Doug Peterson is is actually drawing this. Why don't hear that a lot? I mean here Andy Reid saying, you know, what? Donovan McNabb, and I are inexorably tied for ever. And I will always do what's in his best interest. And what makes him play the best football his best interests? Are my question. You've never heard anyone say this. I mean, Bill Belichick doesn't say this with with Tom Brady. But it's so true Mike McCarthy Aaron Rodgers. Yup. Guys, did what we have here. Bill lauch Montana. Here is. Reflective reminiscent. However, you wanna put it and Doug's actually owning up to that publicly which is a real I dunno groundbreaking step. Head coach coming up eight eight eight seven thousand nine hundred ninety four more phone calls and a sportscaster from New York of some note with. Pretty strong anti eagles sentiment as far as his outlook for the birds this season, it pretty interesting opinion. The you'll hear next shutter.
