VIDEO: The Kung Fu Panda is having a blast in Taiwan

With his infectious smile and goofy antics on and off the field, Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval is nothing short of a big kid. So it’s no wonder he’s a huge hit in Taiwan, where he and a group of other Major League Baseball players (including teammates Andres Torres and Ramon Ramirez) are playing in a three-city, five-game All-Star tournament.

Barry Bonds hits YouTube in support of Bryan Stow

Matty Alou (1938-2011)

Sad to read about the passing of Matty Alou. I recall with fondness seeing the Alou brothers in various box scores for the Giants, although no doubt just a few because Matty went to the Pirates for the 1966 season.   Now we have that iconic photo of the three together, Matty looking so gentle.
