    The Panda who was once beloved in San Francisco appears to be wearing out his welcome in Bean Town.

    During a Q&A session with Giants manager Bruce Bochy at this past weekend's Fan Fest, a young Boston Red Sox fan pleaded with the skipper to take third baseman Pablo Sandoval back.

    "As a Red Sox fan, can you please take back Pablo?" the fan asked, which was immediately met with a chorus of boos from the crowd attending the event.

    Bochy was unable to respond as the Q&A host changed the subject.

    "As a @RedSox fan, will you please take back Pablo?" BOOOO!!! #SFGFanFest #SFGFest

    Judging by Sandoval's horrendous performance last season with the Red Sox, Bochy and Giants fans are more than happy with Matt Duffy holding down the hot corner.

    Duffy in his rookie season hit with a .295 average, smacked 12 home run and drove in 77 runs. He was also named the team's Willie Mac Award recipient.

    Sandoval in the 2014 off season signed a five-year, $100 million contract with the Red Sox to leave the Giants. His first season with Boston was the worst of his eight-year career, hitting with just a .245 average, 10 home runs and 47 runs batted in.

    Now on to the real question: Who let the Red Sox fan in to our Fan Fest?
