A few days ago, the Dodgers posted a livestream Q&A hosted by Joe Davis and Orel Hershiser. They spoke with Stan Kasten and Andrew Friedman about the Coronavirus, the delay of the season and about the Dodger Stadium construction.
Yesterday, Davis and Hershiser were back, this team they spoke with manager Dave Roberts. Here’s the full interview incase you would like to check it out.
I don’t know about you, but I am absolutely loving these Q&A’s with the Dodgers’ broadcasters. It sounds like we’ll be seeing a lot more of these in the coming days and weeks, and I am more than okay with that. Although they’re not calling games, hearing their voices sure is a great feeling.

- With the season being delayed, it looks as if it’s going to become a trend for pitchers to get needed surgery. We saw it last week with Chris Sale, and yesterday we saw it with another All-Star starting pitcher. Noah Syndergaard has a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow and is expected to undergo Tommy John surgery in the near future, Jeff Passan of ESPN tweeted.
The procedure will keep him out until at earliest April 2021 and likely into the summer. Syndergaard is due to earn $9.7 million this season. He’s arbitration-eligible for the fourth and final time next offseason, becoming a free agent after the 2021 season.
