Shane Victorino has already taken a role as a leader in the Dodgers clubhouse. I missed this on Sunday, but Shane seems to have taken issue with James Loney in the Dodgers' clubhouse, according to ESPN Los Angeles reporter Arash Markazi:
If that is the case, consider me impressed.
Also from ESPN Los Angeles, Victorino says that he hopes to re-sign with the Dodgers.
"I don't want to just be a two-month or three-month rental," Victorino said. "I want to be here."
In the piece, Victorino also reaffirmed his love for Philadelphia:
"Don't get me wrong. I still miss Philly and I still miss everything about that place, but now that this chapter has come into play, there are a lot of other things I look at," Victorino said. "I'd love to stay here for the next however many years and win one here."
So far with the Dodgers, Victorino is hitting .200 (5 for 25) with one double. He has yet to hit a home run or steal a base.
