The Red Sox don’t have many options. Right now, Shaw is a better player than Sandoval was before he went off the rails. So, even if Sandoval finds workout religion, how does the team find playing time to rebuild his value enough to get another team to take on even a small portion of his contract?
NEWSFLASH: Designated Hitter must hit to be of value to team. Story at 11!
He was probably offended by their new uniforms.

I never met him but I’m sure he would have fit in well here.

FYI, Vin Scully is a long-time lurker on BBTF so, if you show him some love, he might read it.
