What team is the best fit for Pablo Sandoval?
Sunday November 23rd, 2014

Free agent third baseman Pablo Sandoval is expected to make his decision of where he will sign this week, his brother and co-agent Michael Sandoval told ESPN

John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports Sandoval is considering offers from three teams: the Boston Red Sox, San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres

JAFFE: Is Pablo Sandoval really worth $100 million?

According to the Boston Globe, the Red Sox offered a five-year, $95 million deal. Shea has heard the Padres' offer is the highest, but Sandoval is leaning toward accepting Boston's deal. 

The 28-year-old has spent his entire seven-year career in San Francisco and won three World Series there.

Giants assistant GM Bobby Evans said he thinks the interest Sandoval has in the Giants is "sincere."

"I think Pablo loves this fan base as much as any player loves a fan base and that could go a long way," he said.
