Tommy Lasorda on V. Stiviano: "I hope she gets hit with a car"
CBS Sports / The Associated Press ^ | May 7, 2014

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Baseball Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda says he's not surprised by his friend Donald Sterling's racist remarks. The former Dodgers manager tells West Palm Beach station WPBF after 30 years of friendship with Sterling, "It doesn't surprise me that he said those things. And he shouldn't have said it."

Lasorda also offered his thoughts on the woman Sterling was talking to on the tape, V. Stiviano, saying: "I don't wish that girl any bad luck, but I hope she gets hit with a car."(continued)

Lasorda is really a nice guy, much nicer than me. I was hoping she’d get hit several times.

86 years old, set financially. Free to tell it like it is. Very funny.

If ANYONE was to get penalized for recordings, it's Lasorda.

Mind you, Lasorda was recorded ON the record, and you've never heard a fouler mouth, but he didn't say anything racist as far as I know.

Having said that, I wish Lasorda well.

When you're 86 you can say whatever you want.

One little story back in the 70s Lasorda would come to the Phoenix area with the Dodgers for spring training. My buddy was a bat boy for the various teams and this day he was working for the Dodgers.

The Dodgers were up big, like by 7 or 8 runs, and it was the top of the 9th, dodgers in the field. My friend began picking up the loose bats and other stuff and bagging it. (A cardinal sin in baseball as one never assumes a win, no matter what the score or inning—It’ll jinx ya)

Lasorda saw him doing it an exploded all over him, loudly cursing him up one side and down the other using every curse word known to man for about a minute. “Don’t you EVER pick up the blankety blank, blank blankin bats and blankin balls ever again before the end of the blankety blank blankin game!!”

My friend was almost stunned to tears. About 5 minutes later Lasorda came back to him and said: “Hey son, don’t mind me, we ball players are just pretty superstitious....ha ha ha”

What was that? The volume made me jump, Then it was gone. Was it a famous (or infamous)quote from Lasorda?

Lasorda better hope he’s not driving, or it’s not going to look good.

I met Torre when he was still the manager of the Dodgers and Lasorda at Dodger stadium at an executive suite years ago. The dude cusses like a sailor and he can recite the minute by minute Gibson HR in 1988, which made me a Dodger fan.

However, he cusses like a sailor and being a dude who says F’ word occasionally, we bonded LOL. A damn straight shooter and won’t mince words aka he’s non pc.

And yes, I believe in what lasorda said. What she did was plain wrong and this b*tch should be in jail for recording a private conversation.

I don’t believe California is one of those, from what I’ve been told here.

Because she claims someone else taped and released the recording.

Of course, but the lady will claim she doesn’t know who it was because she didn’t see anyone and of course all her leading questions were by coincidence.

Totally illegal in CA to record conversations.

Some states it’s legal (or it was) to tape-record one side of a conversation.

She claims the recording was at his direction, that she was his archivist (among other -ists available to a billionaire, depending of course on his, er, capacity to consume same).

If that's true, then the recording was no crime (ask Al Butterfield).

Of course, there remains the question of how TMZ got access. Was it V-Dot? Or one of her "friends"?

She is just as much a part of what’s wrong with America as any racist. And besides, there are many worse things in the world than racism. She took the path of least resistance.

I think she got hit by Magic, so she’ll die a slow death.

Yep. I really like guys like that. Baseball is a sport where its really hard to be a real racist because its the single most diverse sport there is. Huge teams of guys that drift in and out of the major league so there are naturally people who don’t like each other but its personal.

Tommy is the godfather of Detroit Tigers catcher Alex Avila.

A car is probably about the only thing she hasn’t hit.

Lasorda, Sterling, Cliven Bundy.
All examples of the same phenomenon.

All over 80.
Something happens to the male brain when we reach a certain age.

It’s called “I have a right to say whatever the hell I want, I’m gonna die soon!”

Last time I heard about Lasorda was a letter from my aunt in Baltimore telling me what a great talk he gave at a Communion breakfast.
