Sandoval Taking First Panda Steps To Fenway?

Free-agent 3B Pablo Sandoval has rejected the $15.3 million qualifying offer from the San Francisco Giants. Of course, he could still re-sign with the 2014 World Champs at a higher rate, but it's much more likely he'll get even bigger offers from teams like the Red Sox. Boston desperately needs to upgrade the third base position and the switch-hitting Panda would also partly solve the dearth of left-hand hitters in the line-up. Moreover, since The Bronx Embalmers have let it be known that they don't want Sandoval, the way is even further open for Ben Cherington to close a deal.
