Gonzalez was a three-time All-Star as a member of the Padres prior to this season before being traded to Boston. He is excited to catch up with some old friends this week, but says when it comes to stepping foot onto the diamond, his San Diego friends will quickly turn into his counterparts.
Gonzalez also discussed his game plan, which has often included driving the ball to left field this season. And while he admits he doesn't own an outfielder's glove, he says there is still a possibility that manager Terry Francona could put him in the outfield during the team's upcoming road interleague series in order to get David Ortiz into the lineup.
To hear what else Gonzalez had to say about his game plan, as well as his thoughts on his first series against his former team, check out the video above.
