PANDAMANIAAAAAA!!!!!!!




I'm sorry but I can't say enough about Pablo Sandoval. His season and quick development is the reason why all teams (especially the Giants) should invest heavily in Latin American baseball. Build academies in countries, sign as many kids as you can. There is just so much talent oozing out of that area that it's just awesome. And to have a player with his kind of enthusiasm and love of the game and love for competitiveness is just infectious to not only his teammates but for the fans too. It reminds me of when Miguel Tejada was coming of age for the A's in the early part of the decade. This combined with his late power surge is just awesome. Kid's OPS is now .913, just 2 pts behind Hanley Ramirez and Hunter Pence. And 5th best among all qualifying 3B in the majors. Those ahead of him: Wright, Longoria, Mark Reynolds and 5 pts behind Chipper Jones. Ahead of Ryan Zimmerman, Casey Blake, Feliz etc.

Aren't you glad we didn't take a gamble on Joe Crede's back now?

Sandoval would even be top 8 in ML 1B as well in OPS. Better than Miguel Cabrera, Ryan Howard, Lance Berkman, Todd Helton and others. Like Nick Johnson and Adam LaRoche.

All hail the Panda!
