CBS's Jon Heyman thinks Pablo Sandoval could sign with a team as early as Monday. The Giants, Red Sox and Padres have all allegedly made offers in 5-year, $90-100 Million range.
While the Padres threw a decent offer Sandoval's way, it seems that Boston or San Francisco are more likely landing spots for the portly third baseman. Boston is certainly an enticing place as the Sox have just locked down Hanley Ramirez and are putting together a strong squad that would entice a number of free agents. But Sandoval may opt to stay put in the Bay Area as his mother and daughter are close by and family has always been an important thing for him. Not to mention, what are the Giants going to do with all those ridiculous panda hats they sell? Expect Sandoval to make a decision sooner than later as the offers from Boston and San Francisco are probably rhe best he's going to see.
