Dave Roberts Reveals why Shohei Ohtani Decided to Come to the Dodgers

When the Dodgers signed two-way superstar Shohei Ohtani, many couldn’t believe the amount of money he was receiving. Ohtani joined Los Angeles on a record-setting 10-year, $700 million contract.

 

 

His joining the Dodgers sent waves throughout the sports world, and now Los Angeles has been labeled as the villains of baseball. But Ohtani came to the Dodgers for the chance to win on a consistent basis, which is why he agreed to defer all but $2 million of his annual salary going forward.

 

 

 

 

Coming to the Dodgers was for one reason only: winning championships. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts confirmed this at DodgerFest over the weekend, saying that Ohtani didn’t come here to not win a championship.

The front office has done everything it can to put together one of the strongest teams on paper. Of course, the games aren’t won on paper, so the pressure will be on the team to find success this season.

Adding Tyler Glasnow, Yoshinobu Yamamoto, James Paxton and Teoscar Hernandez gives the Dodgers a much better chance at winning the World Series. They are absolutely loaded from top to bottom, all surrounding the greatness of Ohtani.

The team made a pledge to Ohtani when they landed him, and they intend to keep it. With him in the mix, the Dodgers should continue to be one of the best teams in the sport for years to come.

Hopefully, they can win multiple World Series titles together to fulfill his dream. The pairing should yield strong results, and they have both put a lot of faith in each other.
