Dodgers shed Gwynn, recall Sands

No Prince of LA: Time of Sands.

My attempted pun looks even worse after seeing it posted.

Anyway, I'm hoping this move means that Sands will be the primary 1B going forward. If he was called up to be a fourth outfielder, then I don't like it.

Mattingly just said he's the back up 1b/of

The 25th anniversary of Gwynn's uncle's MLB debut is eight days away. Msybe Tony Jr. will be let go on Chris Gwynn night.
