So Tommy Lasorda has decided not to let Darryl Strawberry face those mean old Mets and their fans during the exhibition season.
Come on, Darryl, grow up. You're a talented ballplayer. However, you are also making $4 million a year. If you think there won't be any worldly pressure on you or that the L.A. sports media is made up of a bunch of la-la nice guys, maybe I can interest you, sight unseen, in some oceanfront property in Phoenix.
Editor's note: After it was reported that he would not play against the Mets, Strawberry changed his mind and played in Friday's exhibition against his former team.
