Good morning Fackers. After spending 4/20 out in hippie-central, the Yankees conclude their visit to the Bay Area with an Earth Day matinee against the Major's greenest team, at least in terms of age and the color of their uniforms. The A's will be looking to avoid a sweep and their fourth consecutive loss overall. Sometimes it's just not easy being green.
In observance of the day, Brett Gardner will sputter around the basepaths on biodiesel rather than his usual jet fuel.
[UPDATE 11:00 AM: For those of you in NYC, the lovely and talented Grace Potter will be performing a 15 minute set around noon in the plaza on Broadway between 45th and 46th as part of Earth Day at Times Square]
Back with baseball in a bit.
