This wild National League Division Series between the Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers already has had its Buster Posey moment. It has already had multiple Brandon Crawford moments, and captain Brandon Belt is waiting for his chance to contribute if the Giants advance to the championship series.

If only Pablo Sandoval could join his old pals for a winner-take-all Game 5 at Oracle Park.

"It's one of the best postseason moments right now with these two teams," Sandoval said Wednesday morning on 95.7 The Game's "Morning Roast." "I wish I could be part of that because this atmosphere is unbelievable.

"And I've been watching the games on TV, and it's just great."

In the Giants' Game 2 win over the Dodgers, Posey passed Sandoval's Giants record for career postseason hits. Sandoval had 53 hits and a .344 batting average for the Giants, and Posey is at 56 hits and counting and owns a .252 batting average in the playoffs. 

While Sandoval played 69 games for the Atlanta Braves this season, he wasn't surprised one bit that Posey and Crawford had so much success. 

"I never doubted those guys, man," Sandoval said. "I know the caliber of players they are and the talent they have. ... it's unbelievable to see my ex-teammates, former teammates doing well and perfoming well and in the playoffs."

As a three-time champion with the Giants and former World Series MVP, Sandoval also knows what is going to happen in Game 5. 

 

"It's torture," he said. "We never make it easy."
