Pablo Sandoval is going to hold onto this bat just a moment. Just one moment. The bat with which he walloped a mighty home run to put the Giants ahead for good in the top of the ninth against J.J. Putz. It feels good, this bat. It is his. It is a part of him. An extension of his essence.
Ow! That bat is hot! THE BAT IS HOT! It's burning you up! Get out of here, bat!
Sandoval has 11 hits in 18 at bats in his last four games. He is awesome.
