Report: Red Sox leading the pack in pursuit of Sandoval

The Red Sox may be the current front-runner in the Pablo Sandoval sweepstakes, according to The Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo.

Cafardo, citing a Major League source, suggested the five-year, $95 million offer from Boston has the lead on offers from the Padres and his former club, the Giants. The report also indicated Sandoval, 28, is hoping to make a decision soon.

Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal tweeted that the Padres made their offer to Sandoval on Friday. The club’s general manager A.J. Preller also met with the third baseman’s agent Gustavo Vazquez in Miami that day, according to’s Corey Brock.

The Blue Jays are also thought to be in the mix for Sandoval, but at Thursday’s introductory press conference for Russell Martin, general manager Alex Anthopoulos downplayed the possibility of another imminent free agent acquisition.

Red Sox…………….Larry’s the only fool to over-pay for over-weight

Whether Pablo makes $60M or $100M, either way he’ll be set for life. $95M and five years is close enough to what the Giants are offering that there’s a good chance he’ll re-sign. $100M is what you’d have to pay me to listen to Sweet Caroline.

Question: Who’s pitching for the Sox next year? the Panda? As far as Sweet Caroline goes,don’t you think Pablo has had enough ‘sweets’?
