Tommy back in the saddle

Tommy Lasorda has once again been named Global Ambassador to the World Baseball Classic, a title he gladly took on in 2006 and will fill again in 2009. He is at the podium speaking right now. He was introduced by MLB COO Bob DuPuy as being like Sara Lee. “There is nobody who doesn’t like Tommy Lasorda,” DuPuy said. Tommy just told the audience that from now on, he would like to be addressed as Mr. Ambassador, which elicited a smattering of laughter. … In case you didn’t already know, former Dodgers manager Davey Johnson will manage the USA team. Felipe Alou, who is also here, will manage the Dominican Republic.

    Tony, if I don’t like Tommy, does that mean I don’t like Christmas too?

    I was with Tommy at 2 fantasy camps in Dodgertown Vero Beach. As Rick Monday told me, “There are two Tommy Lasordas.” The public eye Tommy & the one I saw–the most vile man I’ve ever met.

    Yanks get CC, we get Casey. Mets get K-Rod, we get Loretta. We also get the highest prices for spring training tix in history & another big increase in Dodger Stadium seats. Glad we can keep funding the McCourts double Malibu estates & Schmidt’s sore shoulder that Ned No Head knew he had when signing him.

    Yep snuffy – that’s because the offseason is over.
