Pablo Sandoval and Willie Bloomquist might not be BFFs

If Willie Bloomquist takes a first-pitch fastball to the back when the D-backs and Giants meet up again in mid-May, he can probably thank Pablo Sandoval.

San Francisco's third baseman took exception to something Bloomquist did while on second base yesterday, and the chirping continued for most of a half-inning.

Considering both players are listed at 5-foot-11 but Pablo outweighs Willie by about 55 pounds, the Arizona infielder might be wise to heed the old saying: Let sleeping pandas lie.
