Ron Perranoski is a mechanic who tinkers with pitchers. He is the pitching coach of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and he has developed a knack for spotting trouble under a pitcher's hood. Take the cases of Tim Leary, Tim Belcher and Mike Morgan, pitchers who always had great arms but never won until they pulled into Perranoski's shop. The Dodgers deserve credit for taking chances on them. Perranoski deserves credit for working with them. Those three pitchers, passed over by a total of nine teams, now compose three-fifths of the formidable Los Angeles rotation.

After he had spent 14 seasons as their pitching coach, the Dodgers unceremoniously took the shirt off Ron Perranoski's back. Then they gave his number, 16, to Hideo Nomo, their latest investment in global economy. Perranoski now wears the number on his San Francisco uniform as the Giants' roving minor league instructor.

Ron Perranoski, fired as Dodger pitching coach in September, was named minor league pitching coordinator by the San Francisco Giants on Thursday. Perranoski had been a coach in the Dodger organization since retiring in 1973 after 13 seasons as a relief pitcher. He was the Dodgers' major league pitching coach for 14 seasons and a minor league pitching coach for seven years before that. Perranoski's firing came as a surprise.

At the start of this season, I made an assessment that the Dodgers, on a position-by-position comparison, would be competitive with the Braves and Reds. Unfortunately, I didn't factor into my evaluation the important role of management. Now, just past the halfway point, it's evident that Tom Lasorda, Ron Perranoski, Fred Claire, et al, have been outcoached and outmanaged by their counterparts in both Atlanta and Cincinnati.

The summary dismissal of Ron Perranoski by Fred Claire appears to be a classic example of an incompetent ridding himself of an expert to provide a scapegoat for his own mismanagement. The Dodgers were ninth in earned-run average this season, but can you blame Perranoski for Claire's disposing of John Wetteland and Pedro Martinez, thus destroying the bullpen? Los Angeles, let's take a hard look at what Claire has let slip or given away and what he brings in. Fred, the Dodgers needed a class individual and a baseball man like Perranoski for your youth movement.

Park Chan Ho took center stage again Sunday, throwing in front of several Dodger officials, including President Peter O'Malley, at Vero Beach, Fla. Park, who has a high leg kick in his delivery, communicated with pitching coach Ron Perranoski through interpreter Don Yi, who is staying with Park throughout spring training. When Park finished throwing, he walked over and bowed to his catcher in thanks.

Pitching coach Ron Perranoski has worked a lot with Darren Dreifort recently, and believes he has pinpointed some of the areas that have caused Dreifort's inconsistency. Along with working on mechanics and an off-speed breaking ball, Perranoski said he is helping Dreifort get to know himself and what he is capable of doing. "He needs to extend himself out in front more and needs to use the upper part of his body," Perranoski said. "We really didn't change all that much.

An extra scorecard would have come in handy Saturday just to keep track of all the Dodgers who were sent packing, for one reason or another, before the end of their 1-0 loss in 11 innings to the St. Louis Cardinals. Kirk Gibson (injured), pitching coach Ron Perranoski (ejected), reliever Alejandro Pena (expelled) and pitcher Fernando Valenzuela (excused, with honor) were all absent by the time Jose Oquendo's two-out, bases-loaded single off Tim Crews broke a scoreless tie and sent the Dodgers to their third consecutive loss on this six-game trip that ends here today.

It was late Friday night when Ron Perranoski got the news, and it came, he said, coldly. The Dodgers' longtime pitching coach was in bed when his wife brought him a message to call Fred Claire, the club's executive vice president. When he did, Claire fired him. Less than 24 hours later, Perranoski's shock had turned to disappointment, but he still had his sense of humor.
