Tommy Lasorda, as fine a manager as he was, would like to have this one back. And even though Dusty Baker's gaffe wasn't as monumental, I couldn't believe it was happening as I watched last night.
Neither could anybody else, judging from the post-game reaction.
Is there anybody else on this team that can beat you? Of course not. Is there any doubt in anyone's mind we would have lost the game if the managing from the opposite side were better? Of course not.
Sooner or later, managers on all teams will figure this out. And our baseball games will become infinitely more dull.
