Report: Pablo Sandoval “leaning toward” Red Sox despite higher offer from Padres

HardballTalk

John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that free agent third baseman Pablo Sandoval is “leaning toward” signing with the Red Sox even though the Padres have made him the highest offer.

Boston’s offer was previously reported to be five years and $95 million, which means the Padres likely either topped $100 million in their offer or expanded the contract proposal to a sixth year.

According to Shea the Giants have also been asked to submit their best offer to re-sign Sandoval, suggesting he’s close to making a decision. During spring training the Giants reportedly offered him a three-year, $40 million extension, which Sandoval smartly turned down.
