It Seems as Though the Dodgers Got Just What They Deserved

In an amazingly short time, Tommy Lasorda's decision to pitch to Jack Clark has been surpassed by his decision in calling the play that resulted in Pete Guerrero's torn-up knee. One wouldn't expect him to know the base-running prowess of The Refrigerator Perry, but the known history of Pete's sliding should tell you not to gamble and throw it away in a meaningless game with two out.

What this calls for is the guy to be eating his linguine in Albuquerque.
