Giants Acquire Big Bat at Trade Deadline
The Giants recently announced that they have acquired Pablo Sandoval to solidify the struggling offense in a blockbuster trade deadline move.
In 4-6 weeks the jovial hitter known as “The Kung Fu Panda” will be manning the hot corner for the Giants.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy was thrilled to hear about the news. “He’s an MVP type player, a guy that will really produce in the middle of the order,” he said at the press conference announcing the move.
Sandoval is expected to be slotted into the third spot of the order and play third base for the team during the stretch playoff run. Giants President Larry Baer thinks this is the type of move that can push the team over the top.
“Sandoval is a special player,” said Baer. “Brian Sabean really out did himself with this move. I am still in shock that he was able to get an All-Star player to help out this offense. This move should keep the Giants in contention all the way to the end.”
