Isn't it time for Tommy LaSorda to retire and quit bothering baseball fans. Word is that the Artful Dodger has been:
And lets be serious. He wasn't that great of a manager. With one of the premier clubs in history, he only made the playoffs 7 times in 20 years. And 2 of those were with teams he inherited from Walter Alston. Granted, he did go to 5 World Series, but only won 2. One was in the strike year when his team didn't even win the most games in the division, and shouldn't have made the playoffs. And the other was in '88, and let's be real. They were lucky. They should have never beat the A's. So if that' makes him a baseball genius, then Bobby Cox is the second coming of Joe McCarthy.
Isn't it appropriate that he was in Los Angeles of all places. Or did Los Angles just make him. If LaSorda would had to of managed in Cincinnati or Houston, or Milwaukee, he would have been a nobody. But because of Hollywood, we are subjected to this guy long after he has outlived any usefulness he might have ever had on a baseball field.
Only a Dodger fan could love this guy.
