After all, Ron Cey, Billy Russell and Steve Garvey were in the fold one way or another.
Lopes seethed, and not always quietly, but the opposite of love is not hate.
It’s apathy, and Lopes was not apathetic about the Dodgers.
He hated that he wasn’t where he should have always been. Now, he’s back in the fold. He’s a smart baseball guy, a great base-running coach, a cancer survivor, a grizzled vet, a tough guy who bleeds Dodger Blue, and the Dodgers new first base coach.
Welcome back to where you started.
Davey Lopes, you are a Dodger again. Teach baseball the Dodger way. Never, Never, Never Quit and teach the Young Guns what you know. Now, all the Dodger Coaches, except for Hillman and Pentland were former Dodger players.
I for one, am glad he is back and I feel good about the Dodgers coaches.
