Dodgers News: Mark McGwire Talks Recovering from a Disappointing Loss

It’s something that takes a good amount of time to get over.

The Dodgers’ loss to the Padres in the 2022 NLDS is one of the more disappointing and embarrassing defeats in MLB history. After entering that series with 111 regular season wins and a historic run differential of 334, the Dodgers looked like a different team in the postseason. They got outplayed and out-managed by a team that won 22 fewer games than them in the regular season, and were out of the playoffs in the blink of an eye.

Mark McGwire, a former hitting coach of the Dodgers who also spent 17 years in the league, joined the guys on AM570 to talk about trying to recover from a loss like this one. McGwire suffered a lot of losses when his team was expected win.

“It takes a while. McGwire stated that it is not a pleasant feeling. It’s not at all comfortable. It’s not comfortable at all. We got to do something different to get on top of the mountain again.”

He added that this loss will definitely sting for a long time, but it’ll be something the team should be able to use as motivation to never allow it to happen again.
