The Dodgers are now 96-47 against the Padres dating to 2013. And this L.A. team reminds Steiner of his previous radio stop.
“Like the Yankees, the guts of the team is essentially the same,” Steiner said. “You had Jeter, Bernie, Posada, Mariano, they were the guts of that team for so long. Now, the Dodgers have essentially the guts of a team that has gone 60 games over .500 over the last 162 games. It’s basically the same team with some valuable additions. San Diego is still adding, trying to figure out how good it can be.”
Now San Diego will try to do what Lasorda once said Bevacqua couldn’t.
One of San Diego’s original Dodgers haters, Bevacqua, who has never owned a boat, chuckled and offered a parting shot: “The boats I have fallen out of or jumped out of, I’ve hit water every time.”
