Pablo Sandoval Benched by Red Sox for Liking Ladies on Instagram
The 2015 Boston Red Sox are so bad that they are unwatchable. Seriously, this team is a roaring dumpster fire. They make fans want to scroll through the social media apps on their phone. Oh, and the players, too, apparently.
Pablo Sandoval, the new $95 million third baseman the Red Sox whisked away from the San Francisco Giants where he was known affectionately as ‘Panda,’ has been suspended by the Sox for liking photos of scantily clad ladies on Instagram during games.
Sandoval’s curious thumbs were outed by a watchful Barstool Sports blogger on Wednesday when he posted an Instagram on Twitter that showed Panda’s account liked two recent by posts from the account “@diva_legacy” during the game against the Atlanta Braves.

Sandoval told reporters on Thursday that he “fucked up” when he liked the photos during a bathroom break during Wednesday game.
“This is a thing that I pushed the [‘like’] button at the wrong time. I hit a ‘like.’ I was in the bathroom, I pushed it at the wrong time. … I just grabbed my phone, and checked it,” said Sandoval.
Sandoval’s benching could be just the beginning of his disciplinary problems though as Major League Baseball has a policy against social media use by players during games.
