Dodgers’ Andrew Friedman hasn’t let Hollywood go to his head or a bigger payroll change his winning formula

LOS ANGELES — Four years in, he still doesn’t show any signs of going Hollywood.

Clearly hasn’t upgraded from Gap chic to designer threads. Isn’t hobnobbing with the TV and movie stars who come to see his team, or at least to be seen. Still puts the job first and hours in, colleagues saying his claims of reduced intensity and increased maturity are a relative subject.

But the most impressive, and probably most important, thing that hasn’t changed about Andrew Friedman as he moved from heading baseball ops for the Rays to the Dodgers?

Mind you, why would celebrities hob-nob with a general manager? Do they really hang out that much with the people holding the equivalent roles in their actual fields?
