When I woke up this morning (about 15 minutes ago) I did what I always do, check my phone to see all the notifications I had while I was sleeping. They are almost always all ESPN, maybe a snapchat or favorited tweet notification but never a text. People don't text me :/
But I saw some of the best Red Sox news I've seen since they signed David Price and that was that John Farrell actually grew a set of balls and benched Pablo Sandoval for Travis Shaw. Pablo is a fat loser who doesn't care at all since he has 3 rings from his time with the Giants and fooled the Red Sox into giving him 95 fucking million dollars.
In honor to the fat Panda getting benched this week's sports #tbt is when Pablo hit 3 homers in Game 1 of the 2012 World Series.
Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, Albert Pujols and Pablo Sandoval....Which one of those names doesn't belong?
As a learned more and more about the history of baseball growing up, one thing that always had a bunch of lore was the fact that Reggie Jackson hit 3 home runs in game 6 of the 1977 World Series. Babe Ruth had also done it a million years ago when he played. Two all time greats hitting 3 home runs in a single game on the biggest stage.
Then in 2011 Albert Pujols did it as well. Up until then in his career Pujols was on track to be one of the greatest of all time. So his name being mentioned in the same breath as them wasn't that insane.
Then next year in 2012 Pablo fucking Sandoval joined the club by hitting 3 home runs in game 1 of the Fall Classic, two off Justin Verlander which may be the craziest part. That one game basically cemented him as World Series MVP since the Giants swept the Tigers in 4 this is the only thing I remember about that boring World Series.
Pablo Sandoval was an average player at best in the regular season during his years with the San Francisco Giants but because of two good postseasons in 2012 and 2014 he fleeced the Red Sox for 95 million. Honestly I wish the Red Sox would just outright release him and eat the money. I don't want him anywhere near the Boston Red Sox.
I hate Pablo Sandoval, here is the greatest moment of his career.
