This week's loser is Red Sox third baseman, Pablo Sandoval
When I heard that Pablo Sandoval showed up out of shape, I said it was par for the course. He’s been battling weight issues his entire career and, after all, the whole point of Spring Training is to get into physical shape AND baseball shape. Is he overweight? Sure. But he’ll have the better portion of five weeks to shave off 10 or 15 pounds by opening day.
This week's loser is Red Sox "first baseman," Hanley Ramirez
With David Ortiz only eight months from retirement, most Red Sox fans will likely breathe a huge sign of relief when they no longer have to see Hanley Ramirez with a glove on his left hand again. Because that’s the logical solution, right? Once Big Papi calls it a career, Han-Ram slides into the DH role and everything is suddenly copacetic. Problem solved.
