LOS ANGELES -- Not long after the Dodgers prevailed over the Astros on Tuesday night to force a seventh game of the 2017 World Series, Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts made his way to the interview room at Dodger Stadium. Just before he got there, Hall of Famer and former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda gave him some words of inspiration.
To quote the legendary skipper, "You haven't done s--- until you win tomorrow."
That's sort of true, in this zero-sum thing called sports. So, yeah, the Dodgers' 2017 season will be a disappointment if they don't prevail over the Astros in Game 7 on Wednesday night. As for Lasorda, he led the Dodgers to World Series titles in 1981 and 1988, so, yeah, he knows about doing s---.
