Video: Pablo Sandoval destroys Reds beat writer’s computer with a foul ball

Poor Mark Sheldon. He’s a cool guy and a good reporter. Now the Reds’ beat writer has to go get a new computer thanks to Pablo Sandoval:

The best part of that video is C. Trent Rosecrans looking almost giddy as he walks over to take pics of the damage.

      A bit of an overreaction, don’t you think? First of all, it was only the screen, so it’s not like he lost any data. Second, he’s the freakin’ beat writer for the Cincinnati Reds. Surely he can get a new computer.

    I hope he at least got Sandoval to sign the ball.

    It’s a good thing that Sheldon wasn’t a Reds employee (he still isn’t) working for Marge Schott. She would have deducted the cost of a new computer from his pay.

    As for Rosecrans, I’m surprised he could get his indolent rear out of a chair to go look. Back when he was the beat writer for the late, unlamented Cincinnati Post, he couldn’t be bothered to do much other than hit the free food. Like his counterpart at the Cincinnati Enquirer, he did little more than recycle team press releases and call it “reporting”.
