…which means I’m pretty sure we ended up on the wrong side of the deal. I can’t think of another player, who in just a few years, was such an inspiring, quotable, ridiculous, Spiderman-y, note-quite-Freddy-Sanchez-face-making, wonderful whirlwind.
Bye Andres. We hope you hit .362/.609/.812 for the next bajillion years, win a dozen more World Series rings, and continue saying “hello” to everyone 9 times a day. If you play for a bajillion years that’s a lot of hellos. You had better get started. Barring that, we’re just glad you had what you had with the Giants, and I probably won’t even complain too much when you hit 3 triples in a game at AT&T park because you aren’t in the outfield to stop them instead.
