Dodger Manager Tom Lasorda's friendship with Joe DeCarlo landed Lasorda in the middle of Sports Illustrated's special report on gambling, and DeCarlo regrets it. "This whole thing with Tommy, it's terrible," DeCarlo said Wednesday. "The nicest guy in the world. And what does this make him look like?" In the article, DeCarlo, a frequent clubhouse visitor at Dodger Stadium, is called a "reputed associate of the late L.A. bookmaker and organized crime figure Mickey Cohen."

Meyer Lansky--the underworld financial genius who parlayed six decades of loan sharking, gambling, prostitution and murder into a $300-million fortune--had acquired the status of a living legend when he was deported from his retirement refuge in Israel in 1972 and returned, a haggard and tired man, to face arrest in Miami. "That's life," the 68-year-old gangster told reporters at the time. "At my age, it's too late to worry. What will be will be."

Rick Honeycutt forgot his uniform jersey Saturday, so he borrowed Ken Howell's. While Howell's jersey made for a passable fit, Honeycutt would have looked impressive in a T-shirt and cutoffs Saturday as he pitched three strong innings in the Dodgers' 4-3 loss to the Houston Astros in their exhibition opener here. Honeycutt, trying to prove he's over the shoulder miseries that contributed to an 8-12 record last season, limited the Astros to one hit, a first-inning single by Terry Puhl.

Most cycling events geared to the bike-riding public really pile on the miles--25, 50, even 100 or more. The annual Newport Beach Bike Tour, in contrast, keeps the pace slow and the mileage low, giving children and beginning riders a chance to take part without being left in the dust. At nine miles, Sunday's event is less an endurance test than a chance to sample some of the best local biking areas.

Baseball Commissioner Peter Ueberroth released his guidelines for clubhouse access Wednesday, and it would appear that the office of Dodger Manager Tom Lasorda will never be the same. Ueberroth, who had warned last month that the "days of jewelry salesmen and friends and agents are over" when he handed down penalties to players involved in the Pittsburgh drug trial, denied access to "playing fields, dugouts, clubhouses and related facilities and areas" to "all but essential personnel."

Frank Sinatra called. So did Don Klosterman and many others. His son, Tom Lasorda Jr., stayed up well into the night to talk to him. Peter O'Malley invited father and son to dinner. But when Tom Lasorda was alone, he cried. The man who preaches Dodger Blue said he has seldom been bluer. "I was broken-hearted, as low as I've felt in a long time," Lasorda said in his office here Friday afternoon. "The day Jack Clark hit the home run I felt pretty low, but this affected me even more."

Another powerful storm hammered Southern California with heavy rain Monday, triggering mudslides and floods that battered buildings, blocked highways, swallowed automobiles and swept a farm worker to his death in a rain-swollen creek in Ventura County. At the Mexican border, the bodies of three earlier flood victims were recovered, raising to at least eight the number who have drowned there this winter in a fast-moving river channel while trying to cross into the United States.
