What are things that bring a smile to my face? From BA: Venezuelan League San Francisco’s Pablo Sandoval powered the Navegantes del Magallanes to the best-of-seven championship series against Caracas. The series begins tonight. Sandoval, 23, hit .395/.425/.604 in 20 regular-season games, then batted .477/.500/.932 with five home runs in 10 playoff appearances. Maybe I'm incorrect, but didn't Giants brass pull him out of Winter ball?
