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:
Sandoval has agreement to go to the red sox for 5 years, close to 100M

- 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
Adding both Ramirez and Sandoval would push Boston's 2015 payroll for CBT purposes to $164 million. Room for pitching, flexibility to trade.
