The Red Sox have confirmed that they are having constructive talks with Pablo Sandoval's agent regarding a contract.
While there are certainly other teams who are in need of help at third base, the Red Sox are one of the few who would be willing to pony up the amount of money the over-stuffed playoff hero is seeking. Reports confirm that Sandoval actually turned down a five-year, $90 million deal prior to the start of the 2014 season and while his full-season's stats -- .279-16-73 -- weren't exactly worth that kind of money, his .335 playoff average and overall post-season performance are what is freshest in everyone's mind. Monitor the negotiations as Boston is probably the landing spot for the Kung Fu Panda should the Giants not open the vault for him.
