As an overweight dude I can attest to this better than anybody. It's my own fault I got to 376 pounds at my highest. Sure there were a lot of factors in my life that led to my weight gain but at the end of the day it was my own fault, nobody else, I could have done more to avoid the situation. Then one day I had had enough, I was a disgusting human being and decided no more. I wasn't going to live like this anymore.
And I'm just some 24 year old loser, not a multi-millionaire athlete with all the resources in the world. I live in my dad's fucking basement and had enough pride to say I'm better than this and don't need to live this way anymore.
Pablo Sandoval on the other hand is a fat, lazy piece of shit who conned the Red Sox into a 95 million dollar guaranteed contract. He was awful with the Red Sox in 2015, he was statically one of the worst 3rd basemen in all of baseball. Yet he didn't have the pride to work hard in the off season to bounce back in 2016. Everybody ripped Hanley Ramirez too last year but at least he has put in the effort to be a productive major league baseball player in 2016. Pablo has always been a fat baseball player but in Boston it has gotten worse. Pablo Sandoval does not care about anything except eating and spending money. He has the two things most pro athletes dream about, success and money. He won 3 World Series in his time with the San Francisco Giants, and currently has a 95 million dollar contract with the Red Sox. Now that he has both the dude just doesn't care. If he did he wouldn't have shown up to Spring Training looking like this.
For a short period of time he was one of better young exciting players in the game, then he got a little money and a few rings and that didn't matter anymore. He got complacent with what he had already achieved and didn't wanna get any better.
Sport reporters used to be tough and ask hard hitting questions. Now most of the media is soft and doesn't wanna hurt anybodies feelings. Fuck that. That isn't how life works, and all these PC losers are ruining this country.
Pablo Sandoval deserves all the blame in the world, a team invested 95 million dollars in him and he returned in that investment by just getting fatter everyday and not putting in the work that a pro athlete is supposed to put in.
Some said he was being "fat shamed" which makes my blood boil. People should be fat shamed. Being wicked overweight is not okay and it's not empowering. It's disgusting and is taking years off your life. I hate when you see fat cows saying they're happy as a fat people. You shouldn't be. You're gross. People should be fat shamed. I'm embarrassed I go to the size I was, I'm still big but have lost nearly 75 lbs this year in efforts to fight it. I hate being fat and have tried to fit it. Just because some people have given up doesn't mean we should accept that and say it's over because it's not. It is not okay to be 300 pounds and honestly nobody really should be unless you're like 7 feet tall or an NFL linemen. Pablo Sandoval doesn't deserve anybodies empathy. He may have a problem but guess what, everybody on earth has problems. He should have to deal with them like a man and not get coddled for essentially being a thief after what he's done to the Red Sox.
P.S. since he's down for 2016 this is officially the only highlight for 2016 Pablo Sandoval.
