Sandoval reportedly joining Hanley in Boston

It appears that not long after they secured one high-profile free agent, the Red Sox moved on and got another.

After reports began surfacing Sunday that Boston could be landing both Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval, the two deals reportedly came to a head late Sunday/early Monday.

According to CBSSports.com‘s Jon Heyman, the Red Sox agreed to a deal with the two-time All-Star and three-time World Series champion Sandoval for close to $100 million over five years.

The Red Sox have not commented on the reports.

With Sandoval coming to play third and Ramirez possibly moving to the outfield, there’s a good chance Yoenis Cespedes, Rusney Castillo, Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., Allen Craig or Shane Victorino could be on the move.

I HAD LITTLE RESPECT FOR SANDOVAL BEFORE. NOW I HAVE EVEN LESS. HE IS A MAJOR IDIOT TO LEAVE A WINNING ORGANIZATION TO JOIN A TEAM FULL OF LOSERS. I CAN UNDERSTAND ABOUT HANLEY, SINCE HE ISN’T TOO BRIGHT ANYWAY. BUT SANDOVAL HAS A ROTTEN AGENT, WHO HAS JUST DESTROYED THE FUTURE OF DUMBASS SANDOVAL. ONCE AGAIN THE RED SOX WILL BE A HORRIFIC TEAM, AND I’LL BE THE ONE LAUGHING THE MOST. WILLIAM and PAMELA GOLDMAN, BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIA

Sounds like sour grapes to me.

being a long time Giant fan attending the polo grounds a youth i would like to leave a slant on what Giants should do that no analyst has mentioned. i dont believbe Sabean wanted Panda back which is ok , I think that posey should go to third being an ex shortstop with a rifle arm makes sense to save his bodt from wear & tear.. next sign vogelsong hes cheap & adds depth..make Petit the set up man…now go out a get a starter a lester, liriano a santana no shields or scherzer please. then look for an leftfielder tori hunter or rios with pagan back & blanco to fill in for all outfield will be set… Sesac is a sleeper which i think sabean/bochy know & he will be great with sanchez as a backup. thats my slant

for once we agree totally. I DON’T THINK THEY WANTED PANDA BACK. WE NEED ANOTHER GOOD ARM. PETIT IS A GREAT SET UP MAN, AND AN OCCASIONAL STARTER. PUT LINCECUM BACK TO A STARTER AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.GET RID OF SWISHER AND GIAMBI.

I agree with you, joecat, mostly. we need Posey behind the plate most of the time. the best catcher in baseball, by far. don’t waste his talent at third base. other than that I agree with you completely

starting staff baumgartner, cain, hudson, a free agent pithcer, Lincicum with vogelsong a backup ,,7th inning on addeldt/lopez, strickland 8th petit 9th castilla…lineup pagan. panik, posey, belt, pence, f/a leftfiedar, susac. crawford

is this supposed to be NEWS? this was a Done Deal 2 days ago

DODGERS SUCK THE BIG ONE

this is old news. Giants All The Way
