Dodgers Correspondence: Buzzie Bavasi Versus a Reporter

Here is another Dodgers Correspondence letter I ran into on eBay.  It is a letter from Buzzie Bavasi to the Atlanta Journal reporter Furman Bisher.  Apparently, Buzzie is a little unhappy with him.  Check out what he writes: 
Someone is not telling the truth.  Even if I had expressed my opinion re your story, what right would you have to tell Drysdale this.  I thought a good newspaperman never revealed the source of his story.  At least this is the excuse I get all the time.

I do not want to belabor the situation but Drysdale certainly told me just what you were supposed to have said to him.

Sorry I will not be in Atlanta this week-end as I would like to discuss this with you and get it off my mind once and for all.
Ouch!  It sounds like Buzzie is mad!  I wonder if this has to do with the famous contract negotiation/ hold-out situation with Sandy Koufax early in the 1966 season.
