Pablo Appreciation Post

Well, the final verdict came on Thursday, and Pablo Sandoval just missed being voted onto the NL all-star team, as he finished second in the voting behind Philadelphia's Shane Victorino.

Now, there is still a slight chance the "Big Panda" will sneak onto the team if someone gets injured between now and then, or to a lesser extent, if somebody decides to bail out on the game. Unfortunately, Charlie Manuel decided to take Jayson Werth as a replacement for Carlos Beltran, who will not be available for the National League. I understand supporting your own players and what not, but Sandoval's hitting .328 which is 60 points higher than Werth's .268 clip. Whether he gets to go or not, Pablo Sandoval's first half has to be appreciated, as he's become the most exciting offensive Giant since the days of Barry Bonds. Heading into Friday night's game, Sandoval's also got 13 bombs and 50 RBI to go along with that .328 average. What's more impressive though, is the way he's putting up these numbers. He's been one of the most clutch hitters on the Giants, and puts up his numbers when the team needs them, not when the games already decided. Coming into the year, I was expecting Sandoval to be around .280-.290 with his batting average, and possibly finish the year with 15 homers and 75+ RBI, and I would have taken those numbers. However, the 22 year-old versatile beast is on pace to hit .330 with 27 home runs, 98 RBI. Maybe he won't end up in St. Louis for the all-star game this season, but I think he's aware that he's deserving, and I would certainly expect to see Pablo Sandoval be in the running to make many, many more mid-summer classics in the future.

Speaking of Giants and the all-star game, Tim Lincecum made his final start before what likely will be his first ever all-star game starting assignment. Lincecum was brilliant for 6 innings, as he took a no-hit bid into the seventh vs. the struggling San Diego Padres, but allowed a leadoff single to Tony Gwynn Jr. and eventually was 3 earned runs in 6 2/3 innings. Not a bad start at all, but not one that Lincecum was too pleased about after straight dominating the Padres bats for most of the night. The outing was still go enough to net "The Freak" his 10th win of the year and should still keep him right on track to start in the all-star game on Tuesday evening. Matt Cain, the teams' other all-star, won't pitch until Saturday afternoon, but that would still give him a couple of days rest before the all-star game, so 'Cainer should be available to pitch in the game as well. Bochy said he plans to speak with Manuel about the Giants two pitchers, and will relay that he would like Lincecum to go no more than 2 innings (which is pretty standard for starting pitchers in the all-star game) and Cain to be held to 1.

Bowker Returns: After placing Randy Johnson on the 15 day DL, the Giants re-called outfielder/first basemen Jon Bowker from Fresno. Bowker was absolutely tearing the cover off the ball for the Grizzlies, hitting .347 with 17 jacks and 64 RBI and 10 steals. Giants fans have been clamoring for the powerful lefty to be recalled for a few weeks now, and with Johnson's shelving, it finally became a possibility. The Giants are out of options on Fred Lewis, Nate Schierholtz and Travis Ishikawa, but can still have one on Bowker, which could actually work against him staying permanently on the roster. If he starts hitting like he did in Fresno though, the Giants will find a way to have him stick. He didn't have the best 2009 debut Thursday, going 0-3 with a strikeout, but based on the numbers he's put up in Fresno, I'm very intrigued to see how Bowker does this time around.

    Man, I voted for Kung Fu Panda over 25 times.. Too bad he didn't make it. Victorino's good though too, but Sandoval is doing better I think, and he's a Giant.. I think the NL will need another player for Raul Ibanez. Please Charlie Manuel, give Panda the call!

    Go Sanchez! Go Giants!! This is turning out to be a really fun year.. Hopefully they can keep playing this well after the break, because they really look like a good team. I don't even think they need another big hitter right now.

    Sandoval OBP: .382

    Werth OBP: .372

    Werth also has 20 homers, 56 RBIs and 12 SBs (Sandoval has 53 RBIs, 14 homers and 4 SBs). And they replaced an outfielder with another...its not like the NL is short on 1st basemen or anything...
    But I think we'll both agree - There a lots of reasons that Sandoval should be there but not a lot why Werth shouldn't. Plus, y'know, winning the World Series has some perks, or so I hear

    The guys great, but why on earth do they call Sandoval the Kung Fu Panda?

    Sandoval had been playing so well, I wanted to capture his big rookie break into the 2009 All-Star game on video. Myself a journalist, I shot this short video, including an interview with Henry Schulman about the final week where Giants fan damn near killed themselves voting online.
