Heart of the Panda

“Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting….”

Just a quick update here, but I just wanted to talk about how remarkable Pablo Sandoval’s three homer game was in Game One of the World Series and how no one seems to be talking about it.

In a feat that has been matched only by baseball greats Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, and Albert Pujols, Sandoval blasted three shots off the tenacious Tiger pitching staff and slugged his way into the record books. His first inning shot off King Verlander was a surprise, on an 0-2 count nonetheless, and then he did it again. And again.

The Panda hit three shots into the stands on a crisp San Francisco night and yet no one seems to be talking about this performance. Could it be that its luster was diminished because Pujols hit three in a game just last year? Maybe it was because the game drew the lowest ratings of any World Series game in history? Whatever the case, Pablo deserves just a little bit more recognition than he received, but don’t worry, he’ll get it when he takes the World Series MVP trophy off of Mr. Selig’s hands next week.

It’s going to be Panda-monium.
