Pablo Sandoval Remains Pablo-Sandoval-Shaped

This photo comes from Boston.com's Steve Silva, and shows new Red Sox third baseman (signed through 2019) Pablo Sandoval on his first day in camp. OK, so maybe he's a little robusto. He just got $100 million guaranteed. That's not really his problem anymore. » 2/17/15 3:15pm 2/17/15 3:15pm

Pablo Sandoval Proves That He Really Will Swing At Anything

It's impossible not to be charmed by Pablo Sandoval's free-swinging ways, and that's why this botched hit-and-run swing from yesterday's game against the Pirates is a cause for celebration rather than ridicule. » 5/07/14 3:17pm 5/07/14 3:17pm

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

Pedro Sandoval, Abstract Neo-Expressionist Painter, Has A World Series…

Rough typo for MSNBC, which mixes up the first names of two prominent Venezuelan "Sandovals" in a totally not-racist way. The error, unfortunately, extends to MSNBC's website in their Game 3 writeup: » 10/30/12 1:23pm 10/30/12 1:23pm

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. These are the three pitches that Pablo Sandoval hit out of the park last night. It's very likely that no other player in baseball would've hit those pitches out… » 10/25/12 1:27am 10/25/12 1:27am

Pablo Sandoval And The Giants Rocked Detroit For A Shocking Game 1 Win

There were many predictions being tossed around in the minutes before Game 1's first pitch, but what most folks generally agreed upon was that Tigers ace Justin Verlander would have little-to-no problem with this Giants lineup. By the same token, there was no chance (right?) that Barry Zito, who pitched a $100… » 10/24/12 11:35pm 10/24/12 11:35pm

Pablo Sandoval Smashed Three Home Runs In His First Three World Series…

The only men to ever hit three home runs in a single World Series game? Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, Albert Pujols ... and now Pablo Sandoval. The San Francisco Giants are now up 6-0 in the fifth inning of Game 1, having already knocked out Justin Verlander.

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 Under Investigation For Alleged Sexual Assault

Rehab was going pretty well for San Francisco's third baseman, Pablo Sandoval, until sometime mid-afternoon Friday: working out and rehabbing on his own, enjoying a break from the daily grind of Major League Baseball, getting a little "consensual, personal relationship of a sexual nature" action. » 6/03/12 11:25am 6/03/12 11:25am

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

Pablo Sandoval Celebrated Exactly How You'd Think
