That time Tommy Lasorda dropped by for some steroids talk in baseball

We lost the legendary Tommy Lasorda on Friday. Back in 2002, the Dodgers Hall of Famer joined Nestor to talk about the changing state of baseball after chicks dug the long ball and the sports was drowning in PEDs.

On a day when cornerback Asa Jackson returned following a two-month absence from a toe injury, the Ravens lost two more cornerbacks in their 28-13 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
Anthony Levine left in the first quarter with a concussion while Danny Gorrer was carted off the field with a knee injury in the fourth quarter. Neither backup cornerback returned as the Ravens finished the game with just two active cornerbacks who were healthy — Jackson and veteran Lardarius Webb.
The injuries forced defensive coordinator Dean Pees to use safety Matt Elam extensively at the nickel against the Dolphins.
Head coach John Harbaugh had no update on either player’s status after the game. Young cornerback Rashaan Melvin was deactivated prior to the game, and rookie free agent Tramain Jacobs was placed on season-ending injured reserve on Saturday.
The Ravens were also without starting wide receiver Torrey Smith for most of the game after his knee swelled up during pre-game warmups. Listed as probable on the final injury report after practicing fully on Friday, the fourth-year wideout limped through his pre-game routine and played sparingly, finishing without a catch.
“We worked him out pre-game and he looked pretty good,” Harbaugh told reporters in Miami after the game. “Then we came out for pre-game right before the game and his knee swelled up and it really tightened up on him. We had already activated him, and he really couldn’t go.”
With Smith essentially out of the picture, the Ravens primarily turned to Kamar Aiken, who turned in a career day with six catches for 65 yards and a touchdown. Marlon Brown added three catches for 30 yards in his return from last week’s concussion.
