What Are They Thinking?
Gary Carter: "I see some autographs need to be signed."
Kevin Gross: "What should I use today, 30 grit or 20 grit?"
John Candelaria: He's not. He's baked. As in industrial-sized conveyor belt oven baked.
Tommy Lasorda: "Now that I have exercised, prepare my spaghettitorium."
Orel Hershiser: "Aw shucks, you took my picture. Prepare for my foot. You choose where."
Bob Ojeda?: "I might be some guy named Bob, or I might not, but, I'm here in the bigs and I ain't going to say nothin' til someone calls me out on it."
Orel isn't kidding about his foot, either. Only one guy had a more competitive spirit than Bulldog.
And Tommy wasn't just good at managing and managing to eat. Have a look at the back of the card:
Look at his BB totals for his minor league career. Holy crap! That comes out to five walks per nine innings. It's a wonder his ERA was below 4.00.
"Hi. I'm Tommy Lasorda, and I never met a home plate I've ever liked. But I've come across many other plates that I've loved."
