So Billy Martin and Earl Weaver told Tommy Lasorda he made the right decision (pitching to Jack Clark). If I were them I would do the same. How else can you keep a patsy in the game?
They know that with all the talent the Dodgers have, the only edge they can get is by talking Peter O'Malley into keeping Tommy. He is needed to make the kind of decisions in order to defeat the Dodgers.
