I'll take door #1.  A good manager adjusts for situations, including the overall importance of an individual game, which does vary between regular season and post-season, but which also has variations within either.  Roberts seems consistently to be wrong-footed by the other manager's moves.  The talent on the recent Dodgers teams carries him, but he does not seem to recognize what is happening to him on the chessboard.
This! This talented Dojers teams can carry his faulty decisions against lesser talented teams in the regular season. In the regular season it doesn't get highlighted on a regular basis for this reason. Faced with matching talent in the postseason and it comes to light.

It was a featured contrast in the 2017 WS, with Roberts grinding through his pitchers while Hinch let Charlie Morton pitch the last 4 innings of Game #7.

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

The LA Times is reporting that the Dodgers intend to keep Roberts.
Good news for the rest of the NL?

According to the NYP he has three years remaining on his contract (thru 2022) and the Dodgers expect to honor it.
Nothing worthwhile comes without pain, ask any Astros fan.
