The San Diego Padres have mandated through an internal memo that the "SD" insignia is the official brand of the organization, furthermore stating that all Padres employees must visibly wear the "SD" logo somewhere on their person. This is according to infallible beacon of true Padre knowledge of this world and all worlds, Darren Smith, and it applies to all Padre employees, from the front office on down. It's a good move, and for two reasons:
This also applies to one Dave Winfield. This man has made numerous public appearances since this mandate, during playoff coverage and on MLB Network, and yet no "SD." Why no insignia, Dave? Your boss said you have to. Aren't you proud to be a Padre, Dave? You're also walking a very fine line, Dave, as you cannot be granted Prison-of-War rights under the Geneva Conventions in the event of your capture. I wouldn't want to find out what happens to the poor soul who is captured by Yankee fans not bound by international treaties.
