Padres make $90M+ offer for Pablo Sandoval. I'm in shock too.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Well, I never!  I never thought I'd see the day that the Padres put a $90+ million offer out on the table, but apparently that's what has happened.  And for Pablo Sandoval of all people.  I'm still having trouble comprehending the fact that the Padres are in a bidding war with the Red Sox and Giants.  Who do they think they are?  They're not supposed to be in competition for anything right? I mean that's what I grew up believing.  And yet here we are.

Maybe Pablo Sandoval is the big "splash" that Buster Olney was referring to in his tweet this morning.

OR MAYBE the Padres will sign both Sandoval and Yasmany Tomas.  That's not a big splash, that's diving into free agency with the Triple Lindy.
