Pablo Sandoval has improved defensively - The Boston Globe

I bet this means fans shouldn’t make snap judgement on players. Of course, most of you already know that.

But that has started to change. Since the break, Sandoval has played with more efficiency at third base and become a reliable defender.

It’s something teammates and coaches have noticed.

“I certainly have,” interim manager Torey Lovullo said Wednesday before the Red Sox played the Chicago White Sox. “Moving very well laterally. The first-step quickness, he’s getting to a lot of balls. There’s been an overall upgrade in his game.

Red Sox need to dump Sandoval, Ramirez, like, now | FOX Sports

Although I agree that Hanley has been a horror show in left field, dumping them would be silly.

Hanley Ramirez, Pablo Sandoval take center stage in Boston Red Sox debacle

Debacle? It was a loss. Despite their inconsistent play, despite their breakdowns, despite their failures to play up to expectations, this team has enough talent and, more importantly, time (5.5 back of first) to right the ship and win the division.

Pablo Sandoval Homer Leading Off 11th Lifts Red Sox Past A’s - NYTimes.com

Some life from the Red Sox. I tried watching the game but I had to tap out at 12:30 AM. 11 innings and a 3:57 game time is too much to overcome.

Kane County Cougars introduce aptly-named Heart Attack Burger

The Kane County Cougars have introduced one food item for the 2015 season that is not shy about its number of calories. Based on its description, the Heart Attack Burger sounds like it could deliver what it promises.

New in 2015, the Heart Attack Burger should cover any fan’s breakfast, lunch and dinner palate. The half-pound beef patty is topped with grilled onions, a fried egg, slice of melted cheddar cheese, chipotle bacon mayo, two strips of bacon with a pair of grilled cheese sandwiches serving as its bun. The burger will be available for $12 at Ozzie’s Grill, located on the concourse level behind home plate.
That’s not the only new item being sold at the ballpark this season. The club also announced Oreo churros, though, as far as we know, no photographic evidence of this item exists. We at The Stew will pay dearly for that type of thing.

Astros to introduce drool-inducing Chicken & Waffle Cone

The Houston Astros understand that sweet and salty, like Biggio and Bagwell, are one of the best combinations of all time. That’s why they’ve decided to take crazy to a new level with the Chicken & Waffle Cone. Your eyes do not deceive you. That’s chicken in a waffle cone, served with mashed potatoes and a honey mustard sauce.

Pablo Sandoval says weight regimen contributed to him leaving Giants

Pablo Sandoval’s departure from the San Francisco Giants continues to get ugly. Sandoval has already made waves this spring, saying he felt disrespected by his former club, and never intended to re-sign with them. Well, he’s doubled down on those comments, telling USA Today’s Jorge L. Ortiz that he changed his cell phone number and doesn’t really communicate with his old teammates. He also revealed that the team’s insistence that he remain on a weight regimen was one of the reasons he decided to leave San Francisco.

“I’m a professional and I know what I have to do,’’ said Sandoval, listed as 5-11 and 255. “I know where I’ve failed and how I’ve grown up. If I had signed (with the Giants), I knew I would be under a (weight) regimen for five years, and I’m not going to be happy someplace where I’m under that kind of regimen, where I can’t be myself.’‘

Once beloved Pablo Sandoval sabotages his own image

If Pablo Sandoval’s recent comments were meant to sting, they did not penetrate. They were comically weak, brushed aside in the clubhouse like a passing whiff of flatulence. The only real issue was his motivation.
