Jonathan Sanchez defaces the Petco Park mound

Or, if you look at it a different way, maybe you can say the Padres turned the mound into a propaganda piece and Sanchez just restored it to a clean and pure neutrality?

You be the judge.

Now if he can just do something about the ads behind home plate.

Yankees to activate Greg Bird tomorrow

The Yankees have the best offense in all of baseball. Now they’re about to add a big power threat: Greg Bird will be activated tomorrow.

Bird has missed the entire year since undergoing ankle surgery to remove a spur back in March. He’s been on the mend of late, however, and recently completed a stretch of 12 rehab games in which he didn’t hit a ton, but he showed that he was healthy and that’s always been the biggest thing with him. As you’ll recall, he missed considerable time with trouble in the same ankle last season.

Bird has always shown considerable promise, and the Yankees — despite scoring runs in bunches — could use a little left-handed power and some better production at first base. Bird, hopefully, will be able to provide it.
