I spoke to Jamey Wright, the Dodgers pitcher and former Tampa Bay Ray, for a piece about Andrew Friedman that you’ll read soon. We were talking about Friedman, and the team he would be inheriting, when Wright volunteered a couple thoughts on this Dodgers team and the 2014 season.
These didn’t really fit with the rest of the Friedman story, so here they are:
“It’s a frustrating team to watch, a blessing and a curse, to have so many former all-stars,” Wright said. “We lose a couple and play awful, then when we won a game the atmosphere was ‘we’re the best team in baseball’ — thinking we had talent and teams were going to roll over and let us beat them.
“I’m still trying to figure out why I’m at home right now and not in San Francisco.”
