Los Angeles’ manager is getting crushed for this decision.
It’s panic time for Dodgers’ fans.
Los Angeles is already down, 5-0, in Game 7 of the World Series.
And the fan base is blaming at least part of this on their manager, Dave Roberts.
All five runs were given up by starter Yu Darvish, who looked shaky from the start, giving up a leadoff double. Many believe Roberts should have pulled him long before he gave up a two-run home-run to George Springer.
You could fire Dave Roberts over this start. Darvish should never have pitched the 2nd. Some of the worst managing I've ever seen. Awful.

Dave Roberts is going to have the rest of his life to think about why he did not pull Darvish.

Dave Roberts, you may have just lost this World Series by sticking with Yu Darvish when it was obvious he didn't have it.
