Zitat des Tages von Pablo Sandoval:
I have always loved and appreciated the Giants organization, my Giants teammates, and the fans of San Francisco.
The taps with the bat on the spikes are one for my grandmother, one for my grandfather, one for my little sister. Then the one on the helmet is showing faith in God that I can do it.
I don't focus on the scale. I focus on doing my job. The team staff and the program I've been working on, they've been touching on that, but I don't focus on the scale.
When our backs are on the wall, that's the time when we enjoy having fun, relax out there, do our thing, don't get the pressure on, see the results, day by day, game by game.
When you're from another country, you want to spend time with your family. All your family can't come here. All your friends can't come here. You spend so much time here, you want to go there, too.
I'm more mature. I respect more the game as I should.
If it's going to go my way, it's going to go my way. I have to keep working hard.
It is difficult. You've got a lot of things outside the field. But you need to learn and understand things you can do.
The people that I surround myself with now and my family, they are the key to my success.
I want to play in the WBC. That was one of my goals to represent my country.
I don't worry about numbers. I worry about wins. You can see all the years that my numbers went down and how many championships I've got. That's what I worry about.
I did not work hard in order to achieve more and to remain at the level of the player that I am and that I can be.
If you don't have good people around you, it's going to be the worst thing for you.
I'm not selfish. I am where I am because I have worked very hard and have always done my job.
I have no ill will about anything.
I'm happy. I learned. I learned from my mistakes. But when you learn, you see all the results; you look more mature, and you put all the pieces together.
If I meant that I missed Bochy and Hunter, it's the guys I'd been joking around with most. Hunter is like my brother, and Bochy is like my dad. But at the end of the day, I missed all the guys.
I wanted to come back with the team I grew up with.
I'm moving forward to do the best.
I just prepare myself to perform well, to support my teammates to play well, to try to get to the final, to the World Series.
I'm going to prove to the fans, going to prove to my teammates, that I can be a better defensive player, offensive player, to win games.
You're human; you make mistakes. You have to put all the things in the past.
You've got keep your head up, keep fighting, and do the best you can.
It is not about money. It is about how you treat the player.
My career had fallen into an abyss because I was so complacent with things that I had already accomplished. I did not work hard in order to achieve more and to remain at the level of the player that I am and that I can be.
