Free agent third basemen, Pablo Sandoval, is meeting with Boston Red Sox officials in Boston with the plans of possibly getting a deal done. Sandoval, who has won three World Series’ with the San Francisco Giants, is coming off a playoff performance where he batted .366 with 5 RBIs. At 28 years old, Sandoval is entering the prime of his career. Many general managers in baseball feel that the Boston Red Sox are going to do whatever it takes to lure Sandoval to Boston. It should be noted that Sandoval has not made a decision on if he wants to leave the Giants.
This is a move that Boston needs to go all-in with to try to get a star player like Sandoval to lead them back into the playoffs. Boston had a terrible season last year, coming off a World Series title. Sandoval has always been a fan favorite in San Francisco and seems to get along with anyone he plays with. His big stature and friendliness gives him the nickname, “Panda Bear”.
However, should Sandoval leave the team that he has already won three championships with? Is it a good business decision? Both the Giants and the Red Sox are set to offer him a great contract, so all it comes down to is who does he want to play for, which the team at Qnet will be sure to continue analyzing. Look for Sandoval to be a Giant or a Red Sox next year, but no where else.
