Sandoval Goes To Sox
Geege Schuman stashed this in Baseball
I feel your pain....almost.
Sandoval also said he was looking forward to playing at Fenway Park, something Cherington feels his bat is suited for.
"His approach, we believe, fits the ballpark well," Cherington said. "Third base had been a position we've been trying to figure out now for a couple of years now. ... This was an opportunity to add a really good player, a great person and a great fit for our team at a position of need."
Last season, Red Sox third basemen ranked 29th in baseball in OPS, with their .580 mark 121 percentage points below the league average of .701.
"He's unique -- a line-drive hitter who has power [and] doesn't strike out," Cherington said. "This is not someone who has to come to Fenway and change anything. He just has to come and be himself and be the best that he knows how to be. If he does that, that's going to help our lineup, that's going to help us win games."
At least he did us the courtesy of leaving the National League so we don't have to play against him regularly.
