MLB Trade Rumors: Adrian Gonzalez To The Red Sox??

Tom Krasovic from the San Diego Tribune has an article today with a rebuilding plan for the Padres, and one of the points he makes is to find out what the market is for first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and closer Heath Bell. It just so happens both will be appearing in Tuesday's All-Star game.

He goes on to say that the Padres should trade for high upside pitching. I say they trade for as much pitching as they can, ala the Florida Marlins. What team has alot of young pitching, you ask? The Boston Red Sox. It just so happens they need a corner infielder with Mike Lowell on the DL with a hip injury.

Should the Red Sox deal for Gonzalez, they would more than likely have to give up a combination of Clay Buchholz, Michael Bowden and Lar Anderson. In fact, if I am Padres GM Kevin Towers, I would call Theo Epstein right now and make that offer.

One NL talent evaluator told Krasovic that the Padres won't have another winning team for another 5 years, so it doesn't make sense to keep Adrian Gonzalez on a team that won't win for half a decade. Trade Gonzo now, and see what you can get for Jake Peavy once he proves he is healthy.
