Pablo Sandoval to have surgery tomorrow

I love Twitter. Before it was invented, you’d have to be friends with a baseball player in order to have him tell you that he’s having surgery tomorrow. As was reported over the weekend, Sandoval likely faces 4 to 6 weeks of recovery time. If that schedule holds, it means he’ll be back the first or second week of June.

The question is what the Giants will do for offense in the meantime. Sandoval had .313/.374/.530 batting line and had hit five home runs. That’s far and away the best on the Giants so far this year. A Giants team that is already 14th in the National League in runs per game and which sits four and a half games out of first place.

    At least the Panda’s paw isn’t so injured he can’t twitter. I hope he keeps working on the fitness and weight as opposed to his buffet statistics. Getting in better shape to play in the off season has done him nothing but good and it would be a shame if he lost that due to injury.

    Craig. Now you know it’s just plain mean when you use one of his. Uhh how do I say this so some people don’t get offended?? That isn’t a picture of .313/.374/.530 batting Sandoval. I’ll leave it at that. He looks like someone overinflated him in that picture for crying out loud. Big guys,take notice. Just because you shave up to where your actual jaw line is supposed to be and probably was at one time, It never makes the jowl line disappear.

      Agree. In addition to fit Panda having less trouble hitting he has less trouble maintaining the tonsure; less topography to negotiate with the razor.
