While the Red Sox cut Sandoval and ate the remaining years on his $95 million contract, the Giants thought a return to the Bay area would help him get back on track.
They were wrong.
Sandoval has gone more off the cliff with the Giant than was thought humanly possible. He's not had a hit in his last 35 at-bats. In that span of 10 games he's only taken four walks and SO six times, so he is putting balls in play, just not with the results of an average Triple-A player.
This dramatic decline for Sandoval is hard to describe without using the word historical as he is very close to breaking the Giants longest streak without a hit. He's just three at-bats from breaking the record held by Johnnie LeMaster at 0-37 in 1984.
