Reports: Pablo Sandoval And Hanley Ramirez Signing With Red Sox

There are reports that the Red Sox are close to signing (or have already signed) free agents Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez.

Jake Wesley reports that Sandoval's deal is 5/102.

Ken Rosenthal tweets: "Source: Hanley Ramirez headed to Boston tomorrow to finalize deal with #RedSox." That deal is believed to be around 5/90.

@MikeBerardino: "Also on Hanley, throughout #Marlins tenure, was common for him to ask clubbies to put #RedSox game on TV closest to his locker."

I just hope that this isn't Gonzalez-Crawford Part Deux ;-)

So does Lester remain on the Sox radar?

FenFan said...

In fairness, if the figures are accurate, the price tag is at least more reasonable.

It appears these two have different personalities than the above mention pair?

Let's hope so.....I am very intrigued at the thought of hanram returning....

Reports are Lester re-signing is close.

Michael said...

The numbers are very reasonable. I just hope they don't break down anytime soon. And Heyman is saying that Hanley is going to play LF, which probably means Cespedes goes in a deal for a pitcher.

I looove the accompanying video!

OTM: "Ken Rosenthal reports that Hanley Ramirez has agreed to a four-year, $88 million deal with the Red Sox that includes a $22 million vesting option for a fifth season, and Jon Heyman says that the idea is for Hanley to be Boston's new left fielder."

Panda likes cake.

Sox Management must feel they understand Hanley better than they understood that other high-priced Ramirez in left field from a few year's back. Seriously.

And less seriously, the thought of Papi and Panda motoring around the diamond on an extra base hit makes me want to smile and start jumping up and down like the guys in the dugout. Who do you think wins a match race at 100 meters? Who finishes 100 meters?

"that other high-priced Ramirez in left field"

We'll not see the likes of him again. Our loss entirely!

Manny helped us win two World Series championships and was always fun to watch. I choose to remember that and his pre-DP high-five of that fan in Baltimore rather than the somewhat sour ending. And he was worth every penny.

D.Ing said...

You guys are right. I think I was guilty of a cheap shot on Manny.

Sometimes he was the only one on the field who remembered he was just playing a game. He showboated and pouted the way kids used to in the sandlot games of my youth, only he was so much better at it!

Ya gotta admit, though, it's kind of funny to think of another problem child left fielder with the same surname. We can only hope he's as successful.
