After agreeing to a seven-year contract extension that will keep him in Boston for a very long time, Adrian Gonzalez, alongside Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein, met with the media.

Gonzalez discussed his reasons for passing up on free agency, his thoughts on the current state of the Sox and what his plans are as a member of the Red Sox community. Epstein also explained what made him comfortable enough to sign a player for such a long period of time.
