I kept a similar notebook for RBI Baseball 2 on the NES with their Oakland A's team.
I don't know of anyone who says the Lasorda game is bad, I'm sure they just never mention it because "it hasn't aged well" (a common criticism for some folks), it didn't have real players/teams and later games that came out were seen as "better." Yet I think it is a pretty good game, even today. No reason you can't reissue this one as a downloadable game, I'm figuring it hasn't been done already. No real players or teams you gotta worry about getting the "rights" for and I bet it'd be halfway fun playing this online with a few people around the US.
