The San Diego Padres' 1993 media guide is a collector's item. The cover (right) bears photos of Gary Sheffield, who was traded to the Florida Marlins on June 24, and Fred McGriff, who was unloaded to the Atlanta Braves on Sunday (page 57) as part of a relentless Padre fire sale. Ironically, for years the Padres were careful not to picture players on the guide's cover, lest those players be traded during the season, but the club's p.r. department figured that Sheffield and McGriff, the '92 National League batting champion and home run leader, respectively, were safe.

Actually, it's three-time world cross-country champion Lynn Jennings, and the wet cement is part of a new Walkway of the Running Stars in front of Boston's Eliot Lounge that was dedicated last week to replace the original, which the city's Department of Public Works mistakenly jackhammered into oblivion.
