    The Braves’ late pickup of Pablo Sandoval came as a surprise to many, but the organization clearly sees something in the former Giants star.

    IDK. Maybe they think Pablo has some sort of uncanny ability to hit in the postseason? Maybe just a "glue guy" who has WS experience?
    Building? Back up!

    Maybe they had problems securing the bench to the floor?

    I would hope that the Braves' FO is smart enough to realize that some sort of uncanny ability to hit in the postseason, aka clutch, doesn't exist.

    I have no idea who else they have that they could have used as a bench piece instead. Maybe Pablo's the best option.
