Insatiable Former Giant Sandoval Needs To Be Fed By Others

Back in happier times.

We Sons of Steve Garvey have watched former San Francisco Giant Pablo Sandoval's career balloon right in front of our eyes, with a waistline that seems to defy physics (if not the integrity of belt buckles):

Now, according to ESPN, Sandoval needs a hand-holder for his eating issues (honestly, that's their headline, not ours):

A former personal trainer for Pablo Sandoval says the Boston Red Sox third baseman needs "a babysitter" to watch over him and keep him from overeating, a temptation for Sandoval that the trainer likened to alcoholism.

"He needs to be smart enough to say there's a problem," said Ethan Banning, owner of Triple Threat Performance in Phoenix, in an interview with the Boston Herald. "It's like the alcoholic that won't admit he's an alcoholic: well, you can't address that you're an alcoholic if you don't ever admit there's a problem."

Sandoval, 29, showed up to spring training overweight, and subsequently lost his starting third-base job to Travis Shaw. He had played sparingly this season before being placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a shoulder issue. He was scheduled to get an MRI on Thursday.

A handholder to feed Sandoval? Maybe these guys are available for Sandoval's feeding?

The Red Sox should show Sandoval his quote from 2010 when he was on a diet and had MVP aspirations. Now that he's not on the Gnats, I kinda feel bad for the guy.
