BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-05-07 17:00:00 (link to chat)Mike,need a third baseman.Sandoval,audible,McGehee,C.Johnson,Reynolds.Hr,RBI,R,Xbh,Sb,OBP.Thanks
(Chesty from New Bern ,NC)
I think I'd bank on improvement and grab Pablo Sandoval. He's clearly better than all of those other guys when he's going well, and he can't be this bad all year. (Mike Gianella)
2014-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)I saw your writeup of 3B Jhoan Urena this morning. I love newfound prospects. If you were to anticipate, what would be a best case Comp. for him and where do you think he will rank at the end of the year amongst all prospects?
(Silverback38 from VA)
It's so hard to put comps on guys that are this far away, but my first thought when I saw him was, "I wonder if this is what Pablo Sandoval would've looked like if had been in better shape." He's a bigger guy too but moves well with it, switch-hits and plays third base so that's about the best I could do for a guy so far away. Has to prove the hit tool is that good, but it's got a chance. Love the swing from the left side, waiting to see him face a lefty one of these days. (Jeff Moore)
2014-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)I can keep Pablo Sandoval or Wilson Ramos on my fantasy team. Who do you think will have the better season?
(cracker73 from Florida)
I want to say Ramos but the health aspect scares me. So I guess Sandoval. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Contract year for Sandoval and he has lost 42 lbs. Do you think that he will ever stay healthy and reach his potential as a hitter?
(cracker73 from Florida)
Hi cracker73

I think Pablo Sandoval could stay healthy but if by "potential" you mean put up a 30 HR/.320 BA year I doubt it. He'll be a solid fantasy asset but not a superstar in my opinion. (Mike Gianella)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)What about Donaldson for Sandoval?
(NotRocky from Chicago)
Hi Not Rocky. I wish you were Rocky...I have many questions about that fight against Drago in Russia for no money. What was he thinking?

No way on that deal if you're getting Pablo Sandoval. He has been terrible, and even assuming Sandoval's upside, you're probably looking at 15-20 HR with a solid but not great batting average. Go with the certainty in Donaldson. (Mike Gianella)
2013-05-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Mr. Vlad Guerrero's nephew Gabriel Guerrero tore up the summer league last year. Do you know if he has the chance to be anything close to his uncle when the time comes? Thanks for the chat!
(Kyle from Minnesota)
To be fair, nothing is close to Vlad Guerrero. He was a rare specimen in so many ways. You might be able to comp Pablo Sandoval with respect to pure contact skills and approach at the plate, but the defensive profiles are miles apart. Gabriel Guerrero performed well in rookie league, but we are a long way from knowing whether his game will translate to the higher levels (.192/.232/.250 in 112 PA in the Midwest League this season). (Doug Thorburn)
2013-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Am I the only concerned that Mike Trout was on the Pablo Sandoval diet in the offseason?
(Shawnykid23 from My Desk)
I was asked about this on the radio the other day, and I said I wasn't concerned. I don't really think it's the Sandoval diet--most of the weight Trout put on was muscle, it seems, and he'll lose some of it this spring. The expected career trajectory for Trout has always been that he'd lose some speed and add some power as he aged and bulked up. Maybe that's happening already, but it's not necessarily a bad thing--maybe a few more homers makes up for fewer steals, infield hits, and fly balls caught. For now, he'll still be freakishly fast for someone his size, and amazing at baseball. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-02-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which major leaguer wins an episode of Chopped?
(Jake Mintz from Maryland)
Can John Axford cook? I feel like he can. Maybe it's just the mustache. I bet Pablo Sandoval can whip up a pretty decent spread too. (Ian Miller)
2012-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of effect does Pablo Sandoval's weight have on his playing style? Obviously it makes him a below average runner, but would he be a better player if he weighed 200 pounds instead of 2000?
(Jake from DC)
He would be different, yes, but he's also the type of athlete that wears his weight well. He's clearly fat, but he makes it work. Again, it comes down to the individual. Not every overweight individual has the natural athleticism and coordination to make their fat work in a professional environment. (Jason Parks)
2012-10-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does WARP pay any attention to left/right splits with respect to value. Jose Altuve has a 3.3 Warp despite being ordinary against righties, whom he sees the majority of times. Likewise,righty Colby Lewis is ordinary against lefties, but has the same WARP as Tommy Milone who pitched about twice as many starts and whose split is fairly ordinary for a lefty. Given platooning, isn't Milone a better pitcher than Lewis? And even with positional adjustments, shouldn't we prefer Pablo Sandoval with fewer ABs and a more even split vs Altuve even though according to WARP they are of similar value?
(pathard from London)
There's no platoon adjustment in WARP. The lack of use a platoon player gets in terms of the WARP they accumulate is very real, though, and playing time is one of the big reasons we use replacement-level baselines. Now, there is an argument to be made that there's an additional roster spot opportunity cost WARP isn't factoring in, but I don't know how to quantify that. (Colin Wyers)
2012-04-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is it possible that Pablo Sandoval will compete for NL MVP?
(Tim from Seattle)
I don't think so. I think sportswriters secretly judge fat people. (Jason Parks)
2012-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Let's try something fantasy related. Who gets the better end of Pablo Sandoval for Bonafacio/Alexi Ramirez?
(will.I.ain't from Holding pattern)
Getting past the it-depends-on-the-league caveat, I'd take Sandoval and a roster spot in any league that's not absurdly deep. (Sam Miller)
2012-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)That's funny, I never even think of C as a position since I've never, ever had a good C before.
(kddean from loop)
That might be a mistake. Catcher is the most scarce and definitely needs to be paid attention to. Their stats count just as much as anyone else's. Would you rather have Brian McCann and Placido Polanco or Pablo Sandoval and George Kottaras? (Derek Carty)
2011-05-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)I don't know. I respectfully disagree with you. I think Sandoval was moved from catcher because they thought they had a guy who was going to hit .315 over a twelve year career and playing catcher would jeopardize that potential. Well, the lustere has worn off Pablo Sandoval and he is in great shape. They got Miguel Tejada, Fontenot, Manny Buress, and Sanchez to play 3B, SS, and 2B. Throw Sandoval behind the dish.
(Aceball from Reno)
That's fair, and the weight loss should help. I'm not sure if getting Burress into the lineup is really that much better than whoever would become the fulltime catcher. (R.J. Anderson)
2011-05-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Injuries are plaguing my team at the moment. - Joe Mauer - Pablo Sandoval - Andrew Bailey - And now Ike Davis Which first baseman do you think will have the most value in the short term? - Brett Wallace (who I picked up and can quickly drop) - Mitch Moreland - Eric Hosmer
(HonusCobb from Hopedale, IL)
I'll jump on the Eric Hosmer bandwagon here. He's made a pretty smooth transition to the major leagues and is also showing power. I like Wallace a lot, too, but he plays on a bad team, which cuts down on his RBI opportunities. (John Perrotto)
2011-03-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jeremy - While early Pablo Sandoval seems to be back to the old Panda. Thoughts on his numbers for this year in a standard 5x?
(Shane from Miami)
I'll probably target Sandoval. He should get back over .300 and be a top-10 third baseman. Deinitely would take him over Casey McGehee, who's being drafted first on average. (Jeremy Greenhouse)
2011-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Now that Pablo Sandoval reported to camp 38 pounds lighter and 11% less body fat, do you expect him to return to his 2009 form? .300+ average with 25 HRs?
(Sean from DC)
I expect him to eat 38 pounds of food in the next 24 hours. (Jason Parks)
2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you buy a weight related Pablo Sandoval resurgence? Or will he be my generations Mark Fidrych? Stealing what Bill James wrote about The Bird, Pandamonium was more fun than a barrel of monkeys
(EricJ from SF)
Well, we heard the same stories last year, and it didn't help, but I'm enough of an optimist to think maybe this time around he got the message. He'll be better than last year, if short of 2009's magic. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-11-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Pablo Sandoval's ass bigger than Kevin Mench's head?
(dianagramr from NYC)
Yes. But smaller than Benny Agbayani's. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-10-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)My unsubstantiated observation is that free swinging young players (ie Pablo Sandoval, Delmon Young, etc) who don't take many walks peak earlier in their careers than others (Vlad would obviously be an exception). This would be the result of pitchers doing a better job of not giving them good pitches to hit. Do you think my hypothesis would bear out empirically? and can Carlos Gonzalez be an exception if that's indeed the case?
(Randy K from Kansas)
Walks are key for a few reasons. One, they're valuable in their own right. Two, they're a sign that a player is able to be selective, and won't swing at as many pitcher's pitches. When a player is younger, they can get away with it more, because they can compensate for it with good bat speed. (This is why walk rates tend to be one of the skills that peaks late.) As far as Carlos Gonzalez - his batting line is so, so weird. And it's hard to learn discipline when you're getting results like this. (Colin Wyers)
2010-07-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Just how far has Pablo Sandoval's stock fallen? I'm in a very deep mixed league keeper with knowledgeable, dedicated owners and I haven't even been able to give the man away...(I have better options at 3B).
(Michael from St. Louis)
I'd give you something (not much, but something) for him. He's not as bad as this year's numbers, any more than he was as good as last year's numbers. He's a likely bounceback candidate for next year. If you would have told me the Giants would be where they are today with KFP playing as poorly as he has, I'd have laughed at you. (Ken Funck)
2010-03-24 11:00:00 (link to chat)Follow up on the NL West, why do you think the Giants won't be in the mix?
(SprungOnSports from Long Island)
They could be, but that offense is just plain, old-fashioned, bad. It's Pablo Sandoval and ... who's the next best hitter? Shierholtz? I mean seriously, that's bad. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-03-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Am I the only one who still fantasizes about the possibilities of Pablo Sandoval catching; even on a limited (backup) basis? That bat is HOF caliber there.
(beta461 from SF)
Even with the lost weight, it just isn't going to happen. This is definitely the stuff of fantasy, Strat, and wishcasting. Not that it isn't lovely to think about, of course. ;-) (Christina Kahrl)
2010-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you had to choose one player for the next 10 years out of Adam Jones and Pablo Sandoval, who would you pick?
(Jimmy from DC)
Sandoval has the better bat, but Jones plays a weaker position and can field well...I still think I may go with Sandoval. I really, really, really love his bat. (Marc Normandin)
2010-01-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any way to look at the Giants off-season as anything but another disaster?
(bjmd from SF)
It's glum stuff in terms of Sanchez and Huff, certainly, because the disasters involve the elective decisions to sign them, and forgo other alternatives. If the goal was to wind up with a first baseman who might not outhit Travis Ishikawa or Nate Shierholtz or John Bowker, with the flexibility of Mark DeRosa and Pablo Sandoval allowing you to rotate around if all three deliver (no laughing... OK, some laughing), maybe all that's lost is money. I still think the Dodgers and Rockies are takeable, but the disaster is that Sabean didn't seem to realize it, and lined up adequate propositions in an offseason where other teams have been considerably bolder and more creative in fixing their problems. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-01-14 16:00:00 (link to chat)Nothing lasts forever? Look no further than my career. Thoughts on the Giants off-season moves?
(Axel Rose from Cold November Rain)
(Tries to think of clever linkage between GNR's "comeback" and the Giants. Not working.) Pablo Sandoval, Travis Ishikawa, Aubrey Huff, Mark DeRosa. They will all play where? I'm scratching my head. (Russell A. Carleton)
2010-01-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Lightning round: Pablo Sandoval in 2010: about the same as 09, better, or worse?
(Gregjitsu from Rside)
Honestly, about the same. Pablo Sandoval is Nomar Garciaparra to me. The good version that hit for a high average with solid power. (Marc Normandin)
2009-12-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)True or false: The slimmer, trimmer 2010 version of Pablo Sandoval will be a strong MVP candidate.
(dianagramr from NYC)
A. Are we sure he'll be slimmer and trimmer?
B. (More difficult bonus question) -- Are we sure that being slimmer and trimmer makes him a better player? (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-08-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)In all seriousness would liposuction be good for someone like Pablo Sandovalís career? Im not so much worried about this or next season; more to helping those knees hold up 10+ years.
(Eric J from SF)
How about just a diet? Or a Wii Fit? (Will Carroll)
2009-08-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Huge Giants fan here, wondering what your thoughts were regarding Pablo Sandoval in terms of 1)a comparison to another player that you think he will become and 2)whether he can stick at 3rd base for the next few years?
(brianpekrul from San Francisco)
I still swear that he's like a shorter, fatter version of Nomar Garciaparra, back when Nomar could catch up to anything and was a lock to hit for a high average. He's doing pretty well at third, so as long as the big guy doesn't turn into a bigger guy, then he should be fine. (Marc Normandin)
2009-07-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)How is Pablo Sandoval not on the All-Star team, even after two injuries?
(Jon from SF)
I count just one injury, Beltran, and Manuel picked his own guy. Which seems to be the thing to do. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-07-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Biggest snub is clearly Matt Kemp, right?
(Michael from Los Angeles)
It's one of the bigger ones, for sure, though at least he's still eligible in the final vote, as is Pablo Sandoval, another worthy who was snubbed. As a matter of fact I think most of the 10 candidates on those two ballots have solid cases with Pena, Lind, Inge, Sandoval, and Figgins giving Kemp a run for his money. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Pablo Sandoval, is this what we can expect from him moving forward? Also, is there a better nickname for him than Kung Fu Panda?
(Auggie from Anaheim)
I don't think we should expect him to slug in the .550s indefinitely, but the guy can rake, yes. Hrm... "Human Flesh Hydrant" probably isn't flattering, but if we translate it into Japanese, that could be a lot cooler than "Kung Fu Panda." (Christina Kahrl)
2009-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)As of the submission of this question Pablo Sandoval has seven walks in his last ten games. Fluke, or a sign that Pablo may be able to add a little patience to his approach now that pitchers aren't throwing him strikes?
(Jake from S.F.)
He's young enough to learn, no question. Locker him across the room from Bengie Molina, though. Maybe even in the visitor's cubhouse. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-06-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, Marc. Who will be the better 3B option in a 10 team/20 keeper league: Pablo Sandoval or Andy LaRoche? What are the odds LaRoche hits 20 homers in 2010?
(Guancous from Silver Spring, MD)
I like Sandoval a lot. I have faith in LaRoche to be a pretty good third baseman, but Sandoval is going to be a scary hitter in his own right. I would stick with Sandoval if I had to pick one (and I did, Sandoval is catching for me right now). (Marc Normandin)
2009-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will - heard anything on Pablo Sandoval's elbow? Is a return to 3B where he has increased value imminent?
(Rob from Oakland)
Yeah, he's been throwing and with Uribe out (and saying that makes me feel like I'm in a time machine ...) it's good timing. (Will Carroll)
2009-05-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)Given your love of fat players, how would you describe Pablo Sandoval? "Pandaesque" comes to mind.
(dianagramr from NYC)
I really need to compile like a short book of best scout quotes I've ever heard. On Sandoval: "Man, that fat [expletive]-er can hit." (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-03-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Pablo Sandoval can hit, but can he stay at 3rd? How long does this experiment go and is there any chance they let him try and catch until Posey is ready?
(Dave from Boston)
Given the other options, I'd run him out there until a better choice pushed him to first base. It could be a while, and will almost certainly involve an external choice. (Why do I have this image of Adrian Beltre signing with the Giants?) I also would try and have him catch 10-20 times, just to keep those skills on his resume. Realistically, he's an everyday 1B by 2011. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-03-10 14:30:00 (link to chat)Pablo Sandoval: over/under .300, over/under 15 home runs?

Under, over. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are you thoughts thus far on Pablo Sandoval and Travis Ishikawa in San Fran?
(Elmo from Bay Area)
I was pretty sunny on both of them a few weeks back in TA, and so far, they haven't been disappointments. I think it's safe to say neither one of them is the new Lance Niekro. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-09-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)How common is it for a guy like Pablo Sandoval to just wake up one day and understand how to hit? He had never been above Double-A and hadn't been all that good even at single-A and suddenly he is a big league catcher...err third basemen...err first baseman? Did the matrix find him? Also, what's his ceiling?
(miasmu from boston)
Dude hit in the DSL, dude hit in the Northwest League, and dude showed some real signs of life even last year, when I'm pretty sure I was the only living human to put him in the Giants top 10. He always hit, it was more of a matter of where he ends up defensively. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-04-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you please say something nice about a Giants' position prospect?
(AF from brooklyn)
I'm a big Nick Noonan fan, and he's hitting well in the Sally League, although it would be nice if he took a walk . . . just one. Pablo Sandoval remains the best kept secret in that system. (Kevin Goldstein)
