The Padres are making an offer to Pablo Sandoval today


That’s basically all we know:

The real question is how much bigger than Boston’s or Toronto or San Francisco’s offers would it have to be for Sandoval to actually accept it? San Diego would do him no favors as far as offensive environment go and it would not seem that they are closer to winning than any of his other suitors are.

Of course, San Diego is a lovely city. But that just doesn’t seem to sway ballplayers the way it sways folks like me.
