Padres Close To Dealing Gonzalez to Boston
Big news coming late tonight, as the San Diego Padres and Boston Red Sox are "close" to an agreement which would sent super-star first baseman Adrian Gonzalez to Boston for a package of prospects which is sue to include some top prospects. Adrian hit .298 with 31 HR and 101 RBI last year for the Padres, in a very spacious park. A move to Fenway would almost definitely mean an increase in stats, despite the league change. Gonzalez is a rare breed of a first-baseman who hits for average and power as well as Gold-Glove quality defense. The move would likely force Boston to move Kevin Youkilis to third-base.
