This Sandoval worship stuff is starting to get out of control.

Colby Rasmus is one of the best young prospects in all of MLB.

Sandoval is putting up some surprising numbers..but really?



Once Rasmus gets full playing time hes gonna be a .300 30 HR 100 RBI hitter

When Rasmus can carry an offense get back to me.

Sandoval carries the offense because SF doesn't have anyone else..

The other day on Baseball Tonight a guy said he'd give $10 to anyone (other then a Giants fan, or a hardcore baseball fan) that could name the Giants starting lineup.

Isn't your cleanup hitter Aaron Rowand or Randy Winn?

Rasmus isn't being asked of that yet.

Is he being asked to hit .183 versus left handers?

Not in first half. Pablo has better numbers

Please don't tell me you guys are saying Sandoval is a better player then Youkilis.

Put it this way.. I wouldnt trade Pablo for Youkilis and Pablo had a better first half. Hows that for you.

Well yeah, Pablo's youth is a big plus and he's gonna be a pretty descent player. But right now, he's not better. Had a good 1st half..but Youk will finish the year better IMO.

Pretty decent? LOL.. I wouldnt trade Pablo for any 2 Cards position players not named Pujols.

Then you're out of your mind. Rasmus alone is a better young talent then Sandoval.


lol glad an A's fan can get in on the laugh as well.

Yes.. since the only reason they even have an all star is the rule of having 1 player for every team. Ya.. the A's star young hitter is... in A ball.

wtf man were we even talking about the A's right now? Jesus Christ you need to chill out.

lol seriously. You were just giving props to Pablo.
2 more outs, lets go

Lol, instead of bashing his average..or his homeruns..or his RBIs..or his defense.

You look for his average against left handed hitters?

What about his average against right handed hitters at 8:47 PM facing Bronson Arroyo on grass on Game 2 of a double header the day after he took a s**t?

Who cares.

Once Rasmus gets full playing time hes gonna be a .300 30 HR 100 RBI hitter..as well as a 5-tool player.

I wasn't talking about that , I was talking about us posting basically the EXACT same thought 1 millisecond apart, two different times in the last few pages of this thread. Sandoval is a good young player, so is Rasmus. Anything further than that is a pissing contest IMO.

Oh, alright..lol but seriously..this Sandoval s**t is nuts.

Soon hes gonna be better then Pujols..

Right now Sandoval is better than Rasmus, and he carries his offense. Sandoval is CLEARLY not better than Pujols, but if he is even 3/4's as good I will be happy with him. Don't get upset at Giants fans for being excited about a home-developed position player. We haven't had offense since Bonds left, we're allowed to be excited.

LOL that got exactly the reaction i thought it would LMAO

We're talkign about Pablo Sandoval and you bring up something that isn't even relevant. Every possible opportunity to take a shot at the A's you do. I thought we worked out our differences.....

Cardinals already made it?
Dude, jrg, I don't wanna get into something.. I'm as surprised as anyone the Giants are where they are at right now.. I didn't expect them to be where they are this year.. So it's exciting..

I'm not getting into any Panda talks or Giants are better than blah, blah, blah.. I was just saying with the guy not knowing who is in our lineup and YET we still lead the wild card..

It amazes me and I hope we win the wild card if not the west this year..

I'm not at all. Sandoval is a good player and is having a fantastic season so far..but the homerism with this guy (since the All Star voting) has been out of control.
