  • Dave, thanks so much for taking the time.

  • What is this moment like for you?

  • You know, I think the word surreal is used all the time, but it is.

  • I mean, it just hasn't settled in.

  • I just look around at all the Dodger fans here.

  • And no, we've been in this bubble for 56 weeks.

  • I'm just so happy as I see Clayton and Walker doing an interview.

  • I'm so happy for them.

  • I'm sorry for Our guys are fans, and it just hasn't said in.

  • But I'm just beyond elated.

  • You've come so close.

  • On other instances, you had to have imagined at some point what it would be like to be a World Series champion manager.

  • How does it compare now that it's finally here?

  • Um, it's better than I anticipated.

  • You know, you always hope, but you're nothing is guaranteed.

  • But to know that, uh, we brought a Champ ship back to Los Angeles and no one can ever take it away.

  • I'm just so proud of our guys.

  • Entire organization and so happy for the fans.

  • Very lucky you were part of a World Series championship in the city of Boston, a major part, a city that loves baseball so much.

  • And it was such a meaningful moment there for that organization.

  • It's a Dodger franchise.

  • Another great baseball town.

  • Los Angeles, is 32 years since they've last won.

  • What do you suppose this means to the city of Los Angeles?

  • It's Ah, it's a great, uh, cap to the Lakers.

  • And now the Dodgers.

  • Um, this is a time of healing for everyone in our country, but specifically Los Angeles.

  • These Angelenos.

  • It's been a long time, so I can't wait to get back home and celebrate.

  • You know, a major story of Game six was a decision by your counterpart, Kevin Cash, to go get Blake Snell in the sixth inning after he had pitched so well.

  • They first off from your perspective, when you see Kevin Cash coming out of the dugout to go get his starting pitcher, what's going through your mind?

  • I was just hoping that he would take him out.

  • Austin got that base hit on.

  • Do you know he was having his way with us.

  • Eso You know, once they went to the pen, I just think our guys Mookie was the next guy up, and I think he was pretty excited.

  • So I'm glad to see that we put them back together.

  • And you yourself made so many terrific decisions his manager, not only throughout this postseason, but in this game.

  • You made a decision in the seventh inning, uh, to take Justin Turner out of the game.

  • Can you share with us that the chain of events that led to that decision?

  • You know what?

  • There was something that happened with Justin.

  • I really can't speak to that.

  • We had to take him out of the game.

  • Um, it'll come out later, but right now, I just really can't speak to it.

  • So, um, he wasn't allowed to be here with us on the field, but that's kind of what led to that.

  • Fair enough.

  • And I can imagine how much you'd love to be celebrating with him.

  • Hopefully, in due time, you will have that chance.

  • You have a chance on the field tonight, Dave, to be celebrating with Clayton Kershaw, player who has meant as much to Dodger.

  • Baseball is just about anybody, maybe in a long, long time, to wear that uniform.

  • What are your thoughts on on Clayton Kershaw, now finally becoming a world champion?

  • I just I'm so excited for him that, you know when you speak about Clayton, its future Hall of Famer world champion.

  • Um, and so that's the narrative right now.

  • And it couldn't happen to a better guy.

  • I'd be remiss if I didn't ask you about the impact movie bets had on this franchise.

  • Of course, he comes over in the trade in February, the big contract extension over the summer and then the role that he played here, really from Day one of spring training.

  • How do you put into context what Mookie Betts means to your team?

  • You know, I can't even really put into context.

  • I mean, this guy has done so much on the field, off the field.

  • Um, he's present.

  • He's a superstar that is a servant, and big games comes up big, and our organization is better with them.

  • And we're gonna be way better for years to come because of Mookie Betts.

  • If I'm gonna ask you really tough question here Last one.

  • For me, it's almost like picking between who's your favorite child here.

  • But you're a World Series champion as a player with the Red Sox and now a World Series champion, his manager of the Dodgers.

  • How do you compare the two?

  • They're completely different, but they're like my Children.

  • I love them equally.

  • So I got my World Series ring here for the Red Sox, and I got one now for the Dodgers, So I love them both.
