In a radio appearance this morning on the WDHA Morning Jolt in New Jersey to promote his new Netflix show, Schneider was asked if the Giants wanted Pablo Sandoval back.
"I have to say, I thought we took advantage of you guys. A 27-year old guy who's 250 pounds...at 29 I don't know if he's going to be as fast as he was at 27. He might be fast getting to the Taco Bell...not as fast leaving. He's going to be better next year.

"If you look traditionally, you guys...God bless your ownership over there because they're not afraid to spend money. But here's the deal...you guys got the monkey off your back (with 2004)...you've won three times now...but you have to know that the first year of a big contract, everybody has a dip. Pablo's not going to stink next year...I promise you. Don't give up on him.
"He is a talent...he can hit...and he can hit in the clutch...the pressure's going to be off next year. There was just too much on him.
"Thank God David Ortiz has another year in him...he was still great (in 2015) and thank God for the DH...now you're going to have a power pitcher with David Price and now you're going to fight for the pennant...you're going to at least get the division.
"I used to think, as Jerry Seinfeld used to say, 'You're just rooting for the jersey' but I think people have accepted that and it's about winning. Boston has said 'we're going to do anything to win and if we have to spend crazy...we're going to win not in two seasons but THIS season and we're going to show our fans right now...all 35,000 that can squeeze in there...that we're going to do it.' I really respect that organization...I really do."

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
