Grant Brisbee wrote that the Giants considered using MadBum in the 8-slot! But that the serious shortage of left-handed batting made it unrealistic.
I miss the switch-hitting Panda. He’s in pretty good physical condition this year and I think Boston just might start getting some value from ol’ Pablo, the greatest bad-ball hitter in recent memory.
I hope so. I’d be happy for him.
I got nothing. Just needed to dust this off for the season.
Happy Opening Day, Everyone.
