Pablo Sandoval has severe Red Sox regret, and it’s well-earned

In a recent interview, Sandoval told Joseph Bien-Kahn of GQ that he wishes he never signed with the Red Sox and that he should’ve stayed with the San Francisco Giants.

I should have stayed with San Francisco. I know. I learned my lesson. But I’m happy I went through it, man, because I kept my eyes open and learned a lot of things”.

At the time of his signing in Boston, Sandoval was well on his way to becoming one of the most popular and well-liked players in Giants history. He had made two All-Star Games, finished in the top-17 of the NL MVP voting twice, and been a part of three World Series winning teams. He played the game with a ton of energy and seemed to always be having fun.

Then he left.

In November of 2014, Sandoval shocked the baseball world by signing a contract with the Red Sox. It was a five-year, $90MM contract that came with a team option for a sixth season. At the time, the contract seemed like one that could pay off nicely for the Sox as the switch-hitting corner infielder was coming off of a season in which he hit .279 with 16 home runs and an OPS+ of 111.
