A combined 236 PA? As opposed to, 1383 PA and a .902 avg OPS over the past three in years in triple AAA. Come on now, I at least expected a better rebuttal from you.

Seems like Wood has been around forever. Him and Jeremy Hermida should start a team.

Not sure why that would be good news. It means Gonzalez's trade value has officially dropped.

I could care less about his trade value, even though it should peak this summer.

I'd rather Adrian retire a friar.

They should trade Blanks instead. He is under team control for the next six years .. now thats value ..

Plus, if they have to trade Adrian, i'd prefer he go anywhere but Boston. I'd eventually get over them trading him to the Yankees or even the, uggh, Mets.

I'd never get over him going to Boston.

Beltre to Boston makes me so sad. I love you Adrian and wish you nothing but the best. You will be missed. But this is still sad. First Cammy and now Beltre. %-6

Sox fans, get used to seeing Beltre's awesomeness every single day. :,-(

Boston got Cameron and Beltre for roughly the same amount that the Mets paid Bay. This is why the Red Sox are good and the Mets suck. :-b

Nice link. He will be missed here in the NW. Beltre's bat bat should fit nicely in that park.

If it's obvious it's probably true.

well that was fun to watch, really wanted to see him in a Giants uniform this year but it looks like he wants to build up his value for a bigger contract next year. I expect the Giants will try to overpay for him once that happens.

Sorry to poop in the punch bowl wr but I think it's a deal that's just a matter of time in the making. I remember reading something that Adrian somewhere along the line said other than SD, Boston would be at the top of his list of available places he'd want to go. That, coupled with the front offices familiarity with each other and the (likely) available Sox prospects it would take to make a deal and I'd say it's got a good chance of happening.
