Can Batkid Run The Bases Faster Than Pablo Sandoval?

Part of the San Francisco Batkid's reward for saving Giants mascot Lou Seal was a chance to run the bases at AT&T Park. We wondered if the leukemia patient might be able to round them faster than corpulent Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval, so we matched them up side-by-side to see who could reach home faster. » 11/15/13 5:44pm 11/15/13 5:44pm

Dale Murphy Saw Pablo Sandoval's Homers Last Night And Wished He Had…

The pudgy Pablo Sandoval spanked lean, mean Justin Verlander during Game 1 of the World Series last night. Fat Ichiro—that's one of his nicknames—hit three home runs. This was improbable. Sandoval hit only 12 all season. Verlander allowed only 19 all year. But Fat Ichiro can do that to you. » 10/25/12 12:35pm 10/25/12 12:35pm

The Hilarious Greatness Of Pablo Sandoval, As Glimpsed In Three Swings…

A 95 mph chest-high fastball. Another 95 mph fastball, this one at the knees on the outside corner of the plate. A tumbling breaking ball headed for the dirt.

Brandon Crawford And Pablo Sandoval Team Up For The Year's Most…

On the one hand, this play doesn't happen if Pablo Sandoval doesn't completely overrun what could've been a routine flyout along the third-base side. On the other hand, Sandoval did have the agility to flip the ball up with his glove. Also, we now know Brandon Crawford's reaction time is better than that of an IBM… » 8/28/12 9:25pm 8/28/12 9:25pm

Pablo Sandoval Pies CSN Bay Area's Jaymee Sire In The Face

The Giants beat Bay Area rival Oakland yesterday 4-0 and after the game CSN Bay Area's Jaymee Sire was in the clubhouse asking questions and rolling tape. Pablo Sandoval was lurking, however and while poor Jaymee was wise to his plan to get Pagan, she learned the hard way that the Panda is an agile and shifty creature. » 5/20/12 1:30pm 5/20/12 1:30pm
