Jonathan Sanchez defaces the Petco Park mound

Sep 13, 2010, 5:28 PM EST

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.

    There oughtta be a rule about advertising between the lines. Good for Sanchez…

    And there outta be a law against those asinine ads spewed by the announcers like the “thirst inning,” “safe and secure with New York Life” and the “AT&T call to the bullpen.” Those things are annoying as hell.

    That is kind of a dick move by Sanchez as it is the Padre’s park and all. I really hope next time the Padre’s are at San Francisco they take the SF off the mound, or plunk Sanchez.

    This is the team that whined and pouted and stamped their feet because there was a non-approved walk of celebration.

    Can you say pennant race? These teams are going to do anything to get under the others skin. And I love it! Would you have it any other way? Not me. It would have been much cooler had he scraped out SF into the mound as well.

    I agree. Good old fashioned gamesmanship.

    and it’s not like the Friars didn’t help him out. The rosin bag sits right there next to it. How many pitchers use it? All of them. So he’d pretty much have to walk on the logo anyway. It’s like handing a toddler a crayon and leaving him alone in front of a blank wall.

    Don’t forget the “Kwik Trip” to the mound. Sports are now just like how the beginning of BASEketball described them.

    @TrevorB:
    What a tool. How long do you think the SF was going to stay there anyway idiot.
