Pedro Moura of The Athletic writes about Dave Roberts’ success in his time with the Dodgers (subscription required).
Through 580 games, he now owns the fourth-best all-time winning percentage among 324 qualified managers — .598. If the 60-32 Dodgers continue winning near this year’s .652 pace, Roberts could become baseball’s all-time winningest manager, by percentage, before the end of next season.
