Dave Roberts isn't a big fan of his players getting mic'd up.
Justin Turner wore a microphone (Live segment in link) during the first game of the Dodgers’ NL Wild Card Series vs. the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday. The Dodgers won the game 4-2, but having a player wear a mic during the game did not sit well with Roberts.
Roberts said he was “not a fan” of such interviews, according to The Los Angeles Times’ Bill Shaikin and Mike DiGiovanna. The Dodgers manager indicated players will not be mic’d up during interviews moving forward.
“I don’t see that happening with our guys going forward,” Roberts said.
MLB has been working with players on wearing mics during games to spice up broadcasts, but some managers don’t like it when their players do it. It’s up to players to decide if they want to wear a microphone during a game, and most decline.
The Dodgers easily swept the Brewers in two quick games during the National League Wild Card Series.
