Pablo Sandoval to Red Sox for 5yr/$100(or close to it)

They were rich in talent last year?

 

As a system -- yes.    

 

Were the Angels talented in the years between 2009 and 2014?   Shit happens, but it's really inane to argue that team isn't loaded with young talent.  Whether or not they live up to what they could be is another matter.

Sandoval makes sense for the Sox.

 

However, if the Giants offered him a contract for close to the Sox' offer, as has been rumored, you have to wonder why Panda would jump ship to play in a place that can be difficult--especially if one struggles--when he could have gone back to a place of familiarity, where the fans adore him.

 

Hanley makes absolutely NO sense. Why pay $88-110 million to a guy who would have to learn a new position (LF) in a place that will be hard on someone learning a new position (in front of the Monstah) when they have a million outfielders already. It only makes sense (somewhat) if they can package a couple of those outfielders to get Hamels. They need pitching.

Panda may get along with Fenway just fine.........that's perhaps the only place he's worth 5 years @ $100 M.

 

which means he's probably not worth that much.

 

this is actually good for the SF Giants -- Sandoval was a fan favorite there but the SF Giants got the best years and production out of him and now the Giants can move on and use the payroll freed up to obtain a power bat -- which is what they need.

 

Sandoval didn't hit that well the past two seasons for the SF Giants but his bat came alive at the end of the season and in the post-season.

 

Panda will probably get off to a good start in Fenway and prompt SF Giants fans to wonder why they let him get away -- which means they may forget that what he does offensively in Fenway he could not be doing at AT & T .
