Both these news bits are a day or so old, but since things continue to be slow I figured I’d put them up here anyway in case you missed them.

Tony Sanchez broke his jaw in a bar fight earlier this offseason. He is apparently fully healthy now, but suffered an enormous setback in his development over the past two years mainly because of a broken jaw in 2010. Another round can’t be good. It’s also alarming to see that he got hurt in a fight at a bar…you may recall Tony stirred up some controversy last year when he criticized an umpire on Twitter…so this is his second off-field negative newsworthy event.  And of course, he had a pretty bad 2011 season in Double-A – so all in all, it hasn’t been a great year for Sanchez.

Speaking of bars, the Pirates will be opening a new bar in PNC Park. It will be called the Budweiser Bowtie Bar and it will be on the platform near/above Section 101 in right field. It will be complete by Opening Day and will be open to all ticket holders. Here are more details, including a sketch.
