Breaking: Red Sox import a Panda

Yesterday there was a sighting of Pablo Sandoval on a flight to Boston.

It was up in the air after the signing of Hanley Ramirez for 5 years at $90 million dollars if the Red Sox would make another splash at third base so soon.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports, "Sandoval’s agent, Gustavo Vasquez, told me same thing he told @alexspeier: No deal with #RedSox. However, @JonHeymanCBS reporting it’s done."

John Heyman of CBS Sports tweets it first:

That puts the Red Sox staring lineup for 2015 right now at something like:
  • CF Betts
  • 2B Pedroia
  • DH Ortiz
  • LF Hanley
  • 3B Sandoval
  • 1B Napoli
  • RF (fight it out with Victorino, Nava, Bradley Jr., etc)
  • SS Bogaerts
  • C Vazquez
All that is now left is to pull in the pitching with Jon Lester and Andrew Miller, right?
