Sunday Bird Droppings

It's hard to imagine how things could be lower: Trembleyesque or even Perlozzian losing run, top two pitching prospects returned to the minors...good grief. At any rate, the talk of beanings is getting old and I have no use for Jeter hagiographies, but I nonetheless submit these clippings for your consideration.
