Pablo Sandoval aka “Kung Fu Panda” and Hanley Ramirez have both agreed to sign deals with the Boston Red Sox. This great “double play” resulted in Sandoval receiving almost $100 Million for a five year contract. A few hours after, Ramirez also agreed on a deal with Boston for four years at $88 million. Although both deals are not yet finalized people familiar with the agreements say it’s a done deal. Sandoval, the Venezuelan third baseman made a very difficult decision to leave San Francisco after 8 years and 3 world series rings. Sandoval chose the Red Sox’s offer over those from the San Fransico Giants and also San Diego Padres. The plan is for Sandoval to play thirdbase and Ramirez to play left field. Ramirez was said to have reached out to Boston for a possible reunion with the team as well as with David Ortiz who he views as a mentor. Boston is rebuilding their team in a huge way. The team is also looking into resigning their former pitcher Jon Lester and it is believed they are prepared to make him an offer of close to $130 Million over six years.
