Scott Radinsky sat alone in the Dodger dugout, still in uniform more than an hour after Sunday's game. It could be he had taken a sudden interest in the ground crew's work as it manicured the infield, but it's more likely he was staring vacantly into space.

Here's the ultimate dilemma for 16-year-old Peter Tuber of Granada Hills High: In his wildest imagination, he must decide between playing his guitar on stage with Pantera at the Great Western Forum or pitching for the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium. Which one would he choose? Two years ago, Tuber determined he couldn't do both. He quit baseball to devote his free time to playing guitar.

Life without Todd Worrell finally has arrived for the Dodgers, and now the questions begin. Although the retired closer was among those responsible for last season's collapse, pitching poorly down the stretch, Worrell had more good moments than bad. Now, the Dodgers must replace their all-time save leader. There isn't a tougher gig in baseball, and the Dodgers are about to find out if their candidates have the right stuff. "That's the big question," Manager Bill Russell said.

The worlds of major league baseball and punk rock have almost nothing in common. Except Scott Radinsky. The Dodger relief pitcher is also the lead singer for Pulley, a punk band that has recorded two albums for Epitaph Records and tours extensively each winter. And though his Dodger contract pays him $900,000 a year and Pulley won't show up on the Billboard charts any time soon, it's clear that Radinsky shares more of a kinship with Johnny Rotten than with Johnny Bench.

Pulley is a pretty strange band even by rock 'n' roll standards. First of all, the band only plays four months of the year, but then again, they play so hard and so fast, perhaps they need eight months to recuperate. Actually, three-quarters of Pulley has to wait each year for their lead singer, Scott Radinsky, to finish his steady gig as a left-handed relief pitcher for the Dodgers. Pulley will headline an all-ages gig Tuesday night at the Living Room in Goleta.
