We Will Never Bad Mouth Pablo Sandoval

Two weeks into the 2015 season, and we get to see Casey McGehee and Matt Duffy play third base for the Gmen. Across the country in Boston, we see Pablo Sandoval suiting up for the Red Sox in Fenway Park. In recent weeks, a lot has been said about Pablo from San Francisco fans, most of it has been negative. Perhaps some of the ill will is of Pablo's doing based on several media reports indicating he planned on leaving the Giants regardless of the offers and overtures made in the off season. 

Regardless, we cannot and will not ever speak poorly of Pablo. How can we? You must first understand, we endured seasons with Rennie Stennett, Champ Summers, Tracy Jones, Mike Ivie, Enos Cabell, Al Oliver, Manny Trillo, Chris Brown, Mike Bengamin, Edgardo Alfonzo, Jose Castillo, and Brian Bocock in the lineup. 

For the longest time, we never thought we would ever a single world championship in San Francisco ever happen. Then the magical season of the 2010 graced us, followed by an incredible 2012 season, matched only by an improbable 2014 season. Pablo was a key member of the club of all of those three seasons, and for that, he has immunity in our book - that means no booing or bad comments. Some day, he'll return to AT&T Park, and when he does, we'll stand cheering for him loudly because he delivered three world championships that we thought we would ever see.
