The star first baseman signed a six-year, $162 million deal with the Dodgers this offseason after the end of the lockout.
The Dodgers were expected to be a World Series contender this season and it looks like they’re just that.
They’re off to a 19-7 start, which is the best record in all of baseball.
After the Dodgers completed a three-game sweep over the Chicago Cubs this past weekend, Freeman commented on his team’s success, and it’s clear that he loves being a part of this Dodgers’ team.
Freddie Freeman, on the state of the Dodgers after a 20-3 three-game sweep of the Cubs: "It's pretty amazing, 26 games in, that we're not completely clicking and we're 19-7."

Freeman Loves L.A.
Freeman hit the nail right on the head.
The Dodgers may not be at 100%.
They may not be clicking in every aspect of the game, but they still have the best record in baseball.
Needless to say, Freeman is absolutely stoked about that.
The Dodgers are just one of those teams that can be playing a couple men down or not clicking on all cylinders, yet still go out there each day and dominate.
Though the Cubs are off to a bad start, outscoring them 20-3 is a pretty impressive feat and speaks to the Dodgers ability to dominate any ballclub they face on any given day.
It’s easy to see why Freeman loves playing in Los Angeles so much.
He is a Southern California native after all, so signing with them was essentially a homecoming of sorts.
We’ll see how the Dodgers fare the rest of the way.
One would expect that we’ll see them make a deep run into October yet again.
