Why Sandoval Would Be A Nice Fit In Fenway

2014 world series hero Pablo Sandoval would be a great addition to the Red Sox for many reasons. One his age and great defense. Third base has clearly been a problem for the Red Sox the past few seasons. Will Middlebrooks is injury prone and refuses to play winter ball which doesn’t help his chances for 2015.Second his locker room presence would be a big boost to the young players the Sox bought up this season.Sandoval and his Giant teammates won their third title in five years. Boston has won three but in a longer span. The Giants are tied with the Sox for for total World Series titles. The Giants and Red Sox have each won eight titles.The Yankees hold the lead with 27,followed by the Card’s whohave 11 and then Oakland with nine.That alone would bring respect to a depleted locker room in which eighty percent of the opening day roster were traded. He would go great batting left handed in front of Ortiz. One with the nickname Big Papi and the other panda would be hard to beat anywhere.Lastly his career batting totals 106 home runs,462 rbi’s and a career average of 294 and the statistic all General managers look for On Base Percentage 346. With those qualifications Sandoval would take at least six or seven years and any where between 25 or 30 million dollars to land. The Yankees have made it known they will not be as aggressive as in years past. The Giants have already made a qualifying of six years 15.3 million was all ready denied.It will take a great deal of aggressiveness and strategy to land one of baseball’s best young stars.The only knock on Sandoval is his weight. But he’s not the only Red Sox that had weight issues. Most recent first baseman Mo Vaughn, George Scott, and pitcher David Wells had successful careers in Boston.
