Pablo Sandoval: the Giants fan’s lament

Pablo Sandoval leaving for the Red Sox is probably a good thing for the Giants, in the long term. Sandoval’s body likely won’t allow him to play third base a few years from now, his stats have gotten progressively worse over the past few seasons, and that’s a lot of money to tie up in a guy who’s probably going to be a DH before long. All of those are perfectly sensible,...
