I flipped between the Olympics and the Braves-Dodgers game last night. Joe Simpson and Don Sutton had the "Penguin," Ron Cey,in the booth with them. He talked about the early days when he, Lopes, Garvey and Russell first came up. None of them had established themselves at a position yet, so there was a lot of defensive shuffling going on before that solid Dodger infield of the 1970s took shape.

Inevitably, the conversation came around to Tommy Lasorda. The camera showed to Tommy sitting in the stands, answering a call on his cell phone. Funny, I never thought of Tommy as a cell phone-type guy. I couldn't help but wonder who was calling him.
