Panda Comes to Camp In 'Interesting' Shape

"Oh, my". That's the only logical reaction to seeing Pablo Sandoval on his first day in Red Sox Spring Training Camp. Let's just say that Pablo could be the "before" in one of Marie Osmond's TV spots. Of course, we got the expected spin from GM Ben Cherington, "Pablo is always going to look like Pablo, you know? You're going to notice him when he walks on the field. I don't think that's ever going to change. But there are no concerns on our end at this point as to whether he's going to be where he needs to be." Uh-huh. We're willing to give The Panda the benefit of the doubt, but, shouldn't he have made a little more of an effort at a first impression?
