Don't Blame Dodgers for Fernando's Woes

August 22, 1987

Scott Ostler must think we readers are awfully naive if we are supposed to swallow his suggestion that the Dodger front office is somehow responsible for Fernando Valenzuela's "overworked" arm and mediocre record this season.

Most ordinary folks know that anytime Fernando wants to hide away and miss a turn he could do so and no one, from O'Malley on down, would say boo. The Dodger organization may not be great humanitarians, but they know how to nurse their prime asset. Mr. V. has "handle with care" written all over him.
