"This is the dressing on top of the cake," Lasorda said Sunday. "What I'm excited about is that Ned (Colletti) and Joe would do that for me. They had so many guys they could do it with. They're showing their friendship and what I've done for this organization."
I guess this proves that Joe Torre really uses a laid back, hands-off managing style. Lasorda is currently employed as 'special adviser' to Dodgers' owner Frank McCourt, so he's been around spring training for the past few years:
"During games, Lasorda would sit by the roofless dugout at Holman and sometimes fall asleep."
I wonder if he falls asleep when he's getting the swirly move.
