There were reports that Pablo Sandoval had dropped some pounds this offseason, but unless he gained 100 pounds before he dropped the 20, that can’t be true. Look, I’m not saying the guy has to be carved out of marble. If you’re going to be out of shape, baseball is the one sport you can still play. But when you’re making almost $20 million a year and you come off a horrible year like Sandoval did last year, you can’t come into camp looking like that. It’s just not going to work. With Sandoval at third and now Hanley at first, I couldn’t have less confidence in our corner infielders if they were blind with no limbs. Maybe Pablo will hit .300 and play a decent third base, or maybe he’ll sweat his way to becoming a $20 million a year bench player.
Way to make me feel like a complete ass Scott. Yesterday I read that Jamarcus Russel has dropped 50 lbs and is expecting a call from an NFL team because of it, today I find you on the internet pumping iron and dominating the gym all the while being diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a young child, officially completing my self-confidence meltdown. Now my excuses “it’s raining outside so I can’t go for a jog”, or “I didn’t get enough sleep last night so an early morning gym session is out of the question” just flew out the window, all because of you. Really appreciate it buddy. Single handedly destroying my self confidence and raising everyone’s expectations of me!
In all seriousness though, Mr. Belkner, you inspire the shit outta me. You make me want to bench until I get to sore to wipe my own ass. Keep doing you.
