Promises Are Made To Be Broken

Shank, October 25, 2014:
I promise never to rip Sandoval for being out of shape or going on the disabled list.
Pablo Sandoval, in Red Sox training camp earlier today:
This photo comes from's Steve Silva, and shows new Red Sox third baseman (signed through 2019) Pablo Sandoval on his first day in camp. OK, so maybe he's a little robusto. He just got $100 million guaranteed. That's not really his problem anymore.
But if Sandoval happens to slump...I guarantee you'll have never heard "you fat fuck" yelled so many times in New England accents.
Since Shank's always been full of shit, when does he break his laughable 'pledge'? First day he shows up at Ft. Myers? First booted ground ball by The Panda? First serious batting slump? Leave your guesses (by date of the column ripping Sandoval) in the comments section, and the winner gets a stuffed doll from yours truly!

Am I missing something? Is Dan responsible for everything said by everybody?

Barth - the point of the post is that Shaughnessy promised not to rip the guy, and I'm making the-not-so tough call that he'll break that promise.

So, yes, he's responsible. For things that he said...
