In 2014, Pablo Sandoval was the talk of two towns. He signed a massive five-year deal with the Red Sox, leaving his longtime home of San Francisco and apparently turning down a larger contract.
This season he enters the second-year of his $95 million contract and looks to break out of the slump that marred his first season with Boston. Sandoval posted career lows in batting average (.245), on-base percentage (.292), and wins above replacement (-0.9) last season, and it seems like one Red Sox fan is holding the numbers against him.
At San Francisco Giants FanFest over the weekend, spectators had the chance to meet and greet with players, coaches and front office staff. One fan, wearing a Red Sox hat, took advantage of a Q&A event with Giants manager Bruce Bochy to ask a Kung Fu Panda related question.
Bochy didn’t seem to address the question, which drew some laughs. The moderator responded with the inevitable “Who let the Red Sox fan in here?’’
But even if Sandoval can’t get the love from one San Fran Boston fan, he’s got the love of the Salvation Army.
