Pablo Sandoval brings #FatChat to Boston

If you want to read some great hot takes, just take a look at the twitter search for “Pablo Sandoval,” I can only imagine how bad things could get if he goes into a slump and doesn’t hit for a few weeks. WEEI callers might set a new low for the kind of #FatChat we grew accustomed to hearing on KNBR during those cold streaks.

The Giants came in second place in the sweepstakes to sign him, and reportedly would’ve offered more money than he got from the Red Sox. But if he’s reporting to camp in this kind of shape, following his first offseason after getting paid, the last few years of that contract might get ugly.
