Unable to dump him and his huge contract, the Dodgers are now trying to pass him off as "the new" Darryl Strawberry. Anybody else around here remember "the new" Richard Nixon?

Please print this on Monday, Oct. 7, 1991: Darryl Strawberry sat out the final game of the season yesterday due to an aggravated toe.

Anyone who has paid any attention to the Mets can tell you that Darryl Strawberry is a prima donna. Sure, he can carry a team when he's hot, but he'll bring it down with him when he's not. MARIE BASIAGO Simi Valley

I see Darryl Strawberry is at home collecting his 4 mil while his teammates carry the ball. He shouldn't have called his book "Straw," he should have called it "Shortcake." DON KUMFERMAN Ridgecrest

In her March 31 article on Darryl Strawberry, Maryann Hudson attempts to make the whole world mourn for Darryl. The story deteriorated into a series of self-endearing quotes by Darryl. I have one suggestion for Darryl: Shut up until you put up. MICHAEL HANNIN Woodland Hills
