Bringing back Pablo Sandoval and Hunter Pence

Without question, bringing back Hunter Pence and Pablo Sandoval was one of the best moves of the offseason. Not only do both guys help out the team, but they make the team way more watchable.

Fan morale was pretty low before it was announced that they were returning, but once the unthinkable became reality, it really turned things around for a number of fans.

It’s not as if 2020 is going to be a winning season with them on the team, but a losing season with some old pals is a lot better than one without them.

Removing nostalgia from the equation, Pence is a solid candidate to platoon with Alex Dickerson in left field if he can match last year’s production, while Sandoval was one of the most productive pinch-hitters in baseball last year while also serving as the primary backup at first and third base.

Bringing them back was not just a good move because it makes fans feel warm and fuzzy inside. Their presence on the roster genuinely makes the team better.
