Pablo Sandoval, San Francisco Giants Agree To Three-Year Deal

In a season full of tough news for the San Francisco Giants, Kung Fu Panda will be sticking in the Bay for awhile longer.

Pablo Sandoval has agreed to a three year, $17.15 million deal that'll keep him with the Giants through 2014. The deal lands him $3.2 million in 2012, $5.7 million in 2013, and $8.25 million in 2014 according to Andrew Baggarly. All in all, it's a relatively cheap deal for the talented Giants infielder.

Sandoval struggled in 2010 during the run of the Giants toward a World Series championship, but recovered to form in 2011, notching him his first All-Star bid. The Giants need a hitter like Sandoval to complement the excellent pitching San Francisco currently has in order to make another run at a title. And of course it's always good to have the fan favorite and the Panda hats sticking around as well.
