Dodgers' Roberts: 'We're not doing enough to win baseball games'
Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts is concerned about his club's struggles to start the month of June.
Speaking ahead of Sunday's series finale with the San Francisco Giants, Roberts took aim at his team's star-studded group of position players and wondered whether they've been more focused on individual at-bats than team success of late.
"I don't know that answer, but I need to find that out because it's getting more clear that we're not doing enough to win baseball games. We're too talented," Roberts said, according to MLB.com's Juan Toribio.
The Dodgers are 4-7 this month and sit 24th in runs scored with just 39. They were blanked by the Giants 2-0 to complete a three-game sweep.
"People get caught up in their own individual paths, but the whole focusing on just winning a game and doing whatever it takes to win that day, we have to get back to that mindset," Roberts said.
Roberts added that he won't call a team meeting yet but will have a lot of individual conversations with players, according to Toribio.
