Purple Row has a nice, in-depth writeup on Pablito. Don't be too hard on them for using "Frisco." If there were something we could call Denver -- 'Ver-Town, say -- that would annoy native Coloradoans, we'd certainly do it.
And I apologize for the Jeff Francouer comparison, but I remember when people would argue that Francouer's low walk rate wasn't a huge deal because he was a "natural hitter." Yeah, that hasn't turned out so well. I love Sandoval -- other than Lincecum and Cain, he's going to be the most exciting part of the team -- but I'm not expecting crazy things for him right away. So when you see me write things like that, just know that I'm predicting a learning curve, not doom.
