Pablo Sandoval placed on the disabled list with an inner ear infection

I don’t know if the Pablo Sandoval era is ending in Boston, but if it is, it’s ending with a whimper. The whimper: the Sox just placed him on the disabled list . . . with an inner ear infection.

Look, an inner ear infection is no joke. My son actually has one right now! I had to go put ciprofloxacin drops in his ear just before stating this post. I tend to think, however, that this is not the sort of thing for which a useful ballplayer in his team’s good graces would be put on the DL. It’s further underscored by the surprised and somewhat mocking tone with which the news was broken on Twitter by the Sox beat writers. It just smells kinda funny.

What also smells is Sandoval’s performance. He’s batting just .212/.269/.354 this season. Over three seasons he’s played only 161 games and is hitting a paltry .237/.286/.360.

Pablo Sandoval’s Boston Red Sox future lies in Dave Dombrowski’s hands

It’s difficult to justify putting him in the lineup. Sunk costs needs to be embraced.

OTP 5 June 2017: Venezuelan big leaguers strike back

Back to baseball this week, as patriotic players highlight resistance to a disastrous President. 

Since March, massive anti-government rallies have erupted in Caracas and other big cities, with demonstrators protesting the country’s runaway inflation, deadly shortages of food and medicine, and the politician they blame for pushing Venezuela into crisis: current president Nicolas Maduro.

At least 60 protestors have died in clashes with government forces. As the conflict deepens, a series of Venezuelan sports stars have spoken out in support of the demonstrators, hoping their profile can help publicize the country’s entrenched problems and jump-start solutions.

“We are listening. Here we are supporting (demonstrators),” said Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera in a recorded interview with ESPN. “All they’re doing is not in vain. We’re fighting for a better Venezuela.”

Sandoval’s solo home run | MLB.com

OK, seeing Pablo get a hit is a pretty rare event, nevermind a homer. That’s not why I’m linking this though. Although the broadcast had extended replay you’ll have to pay attention around the ten second mark of the clip. A fan bought tickets in the first row in the outfield and then wore his glove during the game. If you are going to do that, you have to make the play when the ball gets hit right to you.

FAN FAIL!
