Roberts has been criticized for his handling of the pitching staff in the postseason, and the complaints were heightened after yesterday’s game five.
The Dodgers have won the NL West Division every season under Roberts. He owns a career 393-257 record (.605) and has two National League Championships.
In 2019, the Dodgers set their franchise win record, however many consider it a lost season after failing to win the World Series yet again.
Roberts has three years remaining on his contract.
