The San Francisco Giants may be optimistic about re-signing third baseman Pablo Sandoval, but an East Coast team is going “all in” with an effort to sign the free agent.

The Boston Red Sox are intently pursuing the Kung Fu Panda, ESPN.com’s Gordon Edes reports. Sandoval reportedly turned down a three-year, $40-million offer before the 2014 season and rejected a $15.1 million qualifying offer. Sandoval is seeking a six-year deal that may be worth as much as $90-million-$100-million as a free agent, his agent told SFGate.com’s Henry Schulman.

“Pablo is 28,” Gustavo Vasquez said. “He is still young. Maybe if he was 30 or 31 we could talk about four or five years. But he’s 28. He deserves more than that.”

The Red Sox finished last in the American League East and General Manager Ben Cherington’s aggressiveness prompted an unnamed executive to use “all in” to describe his sales pitch to Edes.
