As expected, the Giants activated third baseman — or catcher?!Pablo Sandoval from the 15-day disabled list.

He’ll be in Tuesday’s lineup against the Diamondbacks. And not a moment too soon. He was hitting .313/.374/.530 with five homers in 24 games when he went down on April 30.  With Buster Posey and now Freddy Sanchez injured, San Francisco needs the offense something terrible.

    I think you meant Freddy Sanchez or however you spell it. I mean a Yankees pitcher on the DL helps everyone, but I dont think it will hurt the giants to much

    It is a dark and stormy night in Transylvania. Lightning flashes and crackles against the inordinate number of weather vanes and lightning rods and thunder roars about the turrets of an isolated Carpathian castle with weird lights emanating from its basement windows. Tesla arcs snap up and down across the slab. There is motion, tentative at first, but soon enough, an amorphous mass rises from the prone, or as prone as an amorphous mass can get. The Panda is…activated. Biddies and spinsters of San Francisco, begin spraying your precious bamboo gardens now.

      Carpathian castle? The one on top of a mountain of skulls, built of pain, who’s King sits atop a throne of blood?

        That’s the one – got the throne right too. And no, for all of you fundamentalist clowns, there were no Gospel analogies intended.

    Gator, I appreciate the Mary Shelley pull. I didn’t read the actual book until my early 40s, so I had little idea that the monster is actually the moral compass of the story. Not nearly as funny as Gene Hackman lighting Peter Boyle’s thumb on fire, but interesting nonetheless…

      Fabulous novel, written at a time when moral relativism had not yet soared in popularity, and of course Hollywood got it wrong, and wrong, and wrong, and wrong, and wrong again. Until, as you point out, Gene Hackman lit Peter Boyle’s thumb, at least….
