Only Say What You Can Back Up, Tommy


I’m not a fan of Tommy Lasorda. I find him mean-spirited, petty, two-faced, fat and incredibly phony who lost his teams more games by managing than anyone this side of Gene Mauch (look it up). So, it’s a pleasure for me to call him out.

After the Dodgers won Game 6 of the World Series, Lasorda was heard shouting at Manager Dave Roberts, “You haven’t won (bleep) until you win tomorrow!”

Easy for him to say. Lasorda never managed a Game 7 in the World Series. The 1977, 1978 and 1981 Series each went six games; the 1988 Series went five games.

In fact, only Walter Alston ever managed a Game 7 victory for the Dodgers, and he did it twice. Roberts failed in his first attempt.

Think before you speak, Tommy. Oh, wait. You don’t know how to do that, do you?

Until next time! Use the right words!
