Dodgers: Dave Roberts learned ‘the hard way’ that Max Scherzer doesn’t like to have his butt touched

The Los Angeles Dodgers with everything and injuries seek to follow him the step to San Francisco Giants in the fight for the title of the National League West, winning 8 of his last 10, although they are still 4 games away from his great rivals, and the new acquisitions of the team as the former pitcher Washington Nationals’ Max Scherzer have helped this hot streak a lot.

The truth is that Mad Max is acclimating to his new home and his new teammates, and his manager Dave Roberts discovered that there is something that the pitcher does not like at all and that he realized “the wrong way”, according to the pilot. during the broadcast of last Sunday’s Dodgers game against the Mets: Get his butt touched.

I think it was his first home game with us, every time he entered the dugout I gave him a little spanking as a way of congratulating him. The first inning, the second, the third, and by the fourth, I realized that it bothered him. Then the players told me ‘hey Doc, make sure you don’t touch him, he doesn’t like anyone touching him.’

Roberts mentioned that Scherzer was rude ‘in a respectful way’ and that he didn’t need anyone to touch him or congratulate him because that’s his job and he knows he has to do it right.

I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy.
