Freddy Sanchez: professional hitter, chemistry guy

Jul 30, 2009, 9:30 AM EDT

Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle on the Giants trade for Freddy Sanchez:

Unless he has suddenly lost it at age 31, he will stabilize a shaky
position and add professional hitting . . . A preliminary background
check on Sanchez turned up no evidence that he’ll be anything but a
stellar addition to the Giants’ clubhouse . . . The Giants are a team
with excellent chemistry, according to most amateur baseball chemists.
If they don’t make a legitimate charge now, the concept of baseball
chemistry will be forever rendered a joke.

Professional hitter! Great clubhouse guy! Chemistry!

I won’t deny that Sanchez will be useful for the Giants, but when you
see those words written in connection with a trade, the person doing
the writing is on the side that lost the trade.

    Where do you get a background check that sends people out to interview past aquaintances? Is this just how the Feds do it?
