Freddie Freeman's big weekend in Atlanta is still a story in the baseball world. Freddie's emotional return to his longtime team dominated the weekend headlines.

Manager Dave Roberts provided his thoughts on all of the critiques about Freddie in a recent interview with The Athletic's Fabian Ardaya. Buckle up for spicy Dave. 

“If anyone has a problem with it, that’s on them. It shouldn’t be a problem. This guy has helped us win a [expletive] ton of games this year and will continue to do so. And for him to have his moment with a team that he poured 15 years into, I don’t see a problem with it.”

Freddie spent 12 years with the Braves and its somewhat understandable he would have some emotions during his weekend homecoming.

But Roberts, Freddie, and the Dodgers are ready to move on.
