Last night it was reported that Pablo Sandoval had lost 42 pounds. Today Sandoval said that he has not told anyone how much weight he has lost, but that he will do so when he gets to spring training.

Kinda doesn’t matter what the numbers are. Get a load of this:

Someone open a window. Gettin’ hot in here.

Seriously, though, this is what Sandoval looked like at the end of the season:

We joke a lot, but really, Pablo Sandoval is in The Best Shape of His Life. The Best DAMN Shape of His Life.

Chris Woodward interviewed for the Yankees’ managerial position

The Yankees interviewed Aaron Boone for their managerial vacancy on Friday, and today it was Chris Woodward’s turn. That makes at least five interviews since the offseason began, and Woodward’s likely won’t be the last.

Like fellow candidate Eric Wedge, whom the Yankees interviewed just last week, Woodward has never played or coached for the club. He spent the majority of his 12-year career with the Blue Jays and picked up brief stints with the Mets, Braves, Mariners and Red Sox before returning to Toronto for his final season in 2011. Following retirement, he served as the Mariners’ minor league infield coordinator and infield and first base coach from 2012-2015. During the 2015 offseason, he jumped over to the National League to work with the Dodgers as a third base coach, and saw his first postseason run since the Mets lost to the Dodgers in the 2006 NLDS.

While Woodward has yet to manage at the major league level, he was named manager of the New Zealand national team during the 2017 World Baseball Classic qualifiers. It’s certainly conceivable that the Yankees would prefer a candidate with significant experience leading a major league team, but right now the only person who fits that bill is Eric Wedge — and, well, it’s Eric Wedge.
