Hopes in Boston of acquiring Adrian Gonzalez may have been dashed, courtesy of SI.com's Jon Heyman's latest Tweet. The report says that the Padres are eyeing five of the Red Sox' top young players.
still talking adrian gonzo. buchholz, lowrie, masterson in mix. sd wants ryan westmoreland and lars anderson, too.
If that's the case, it's hard to imagine Theo Epstein jumping at the chance to add a power-hitting first baseman for that package.
Heyman updated his Twitter page shortly thereafter, adding:
[Red Sox] talking a lot with padres. closer heath bell's name came up in gonzo talks. isnt boston's pen good enough?
