Just so the BYB audience is aware, we are unable to confirm the Sox signed Sandoval. The word we just got is Sandoval is giving the Giants a chance to top whatever deal the Red Sox have presented, which is, "five-year, $95 million offer..." according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.
Ironically, that was almost the same deal the Sox did finalize to bring Hanley Ramirez back to Beantown.
Yahoo says the deal with Ramirez is worth 5 years and $90 milloin. Ken Rosenthal tweeted the following:

You have to understand that the Sox have a to make a statement here. They ended up in last place last year. I think the pick ups are huge, especially if Pablo is signed. When we get word on that, we will tell you. There is no doubt though that Hanley is a Red Sock.
Let the rivalry continue!
