The 49-year-old skipper recently made it very clear that he expects to win another title in 2022.
Dave Roberts: "I expect to win a championship again in 2022."

This is music to the ears of Dodgers fans, as they’d obviously love nothing more than to celebrate another World Series title in 2022.
Roberts knows how to get the job done, and if the dominoes fall the right way for L.A., the team could find itself at the top of the baseball world again this coming season.
In It To Win It
Roberts recently took some time to discuss when he thinks he’ll retire from being a manager.
His answer was very telling.
Roberts explained that winning more championships is the ultimate goal.
He added that he thinks he gives the Dodgers the best chance to do that by approaching his job with passion and joy.
Once the spark is gone for Roberts, that’s when he’ll walk away.
But for now, it seems like he’s all in on winning another World Series with L.A.
“When I stop loving my job, then I’ll have no problem walking away,” Roberts said to Andy McCullough of The Athletic. “Regardless. Yes, winning a championship, another championship and more, is the goal. But for me, I know that it gives the Dodgers the best chance to do that, if I do my job with complete passion, conviction and commitment. If I can do that, I think, on my end of things, that helps us get to where we want to get to. If I feel like I can’t do that and deliver that, it’s time for me to move on.”
Luckily for Dodgers fans, it seems like Roberts still loves his job.
With any luck, Roberts’ passion will help Los Angeles win another championship in 2022.
Roberts Has The Tools For The Job
One thing is for sure: Roberts has the roster he needs to lead the Dodgers to another World Series.
Sure, there are still some question marks for L.A., and it remains to be seen how much noise the team will make now that free agency is open.
But even with the roster the Dodgers currently have, they’re already the favorites to win the 2022 World Series according to most sportsbooks.
The NL West figures to be extremely competitive once again this coming season, but every team in the division is certainly hoping that it won’t take 107 victories this time around to win the crown.

Regardless of how tough the NL West ends up being, the Dodgers are undoubtedly going to be in the mix from the start of the season to the very end.
Only two managers in Dodgers history have led the organization to multiple titles.
Roberts could join some very elite company by becoming the third manager in Dodgers history to lead the franchise to multiple World Series titles.NEXT: Dodgers Want Dave Roberts Around For A Long Time
