We Giants fans have come to call him "FATichiro" due to the fact htat he swings at everything but makes contact most of the time.
That being said, i have him in three leagues because im a homer and hes C eligible. They were two 14 teamers and one 12 teamer with a very deep bench and i never got him below the 11th round in any of them. But these 3 drafts were done before the first half of March was through so the hype didnt settle in much yet. Anyways, i work for United airlines, so ive taken day trips to PHX and been to on average 2.5 ST games a week this year so i could check out Sandoval and Ishikawa rake the ball. I actually was there for this one particular gameon the 23rd....
"Sandoval's teammates call him "Zorro" because of the precision with which he wields his bat. On Monday, they were in collective awe as he swung at a pitch in the dirt ... and got a hit."http://mlb.fanhouse.com/2009/03/24/can-pablo-sandoval-do-it-again/
..sure it was an infield single but im getting more and more excited about this guy who was leding ST in hits from a few days ago. Plus he beat out Miggy Cabrera in a Venezuelan Home Run Derby...whats not to like about this guy!?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJPjf06RQeQ&NR=1
