Padres’ Single-A manager resigns – San Diego Union-Tribune
Francisco Morales has resigned as manager of the Padres’ High Single-A affiliate in Lake Elsinore, according to sources. It is unclear whether Morales, who had been in his third season with the organization, left of his own accord.

San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus slams San Diego Padres Over National Anthem Incident – NBC Sports
The Gay Men’s Chorus characterizes the incident as one which raises “serious questions about homophobia” and followed “several days of troubling comments and behavior within the San Diego Padres organization” leading up to the game.

As high stakes go, this decision that will be up to vice president of basketball operations Kiki Vandeweghe looms larger than any in recent NBA playoff history. Green’s value to the Warriors is well-chronicled, and the notion of not having him in a crucial Game 4 is nothing short of a nightmare for Golden State.

Here’s what Tom Brady’s deflate-gate appeal potentially could mean – Yahoo! Sports
The NFLPA plans to file a petition this afternoon to rehear Brady’s case “en banc” — which, in legal terms, means in front of the entire court — in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. It’s a risky approach, as typically the court defers to the findings of its three-judge panel, which previously had reinstated his four-game suspension by a 2-1 vote, as a matter of respect.

How Jon Lester’s move to Cubs also helped Giants – USA Today
