    Adrian Gonzalez is really, really happy to be back in California. And he’s comfortable enough there to throw some bombs back in Boston’s direction. Dylan Hernandez of the L.A. Times reports: As for why the Boston media didn’t take to him, he said, “They didn’t like that I was a calm person. I won’t throw…

    It was hinted at on Saturday but is now official.

    Dodgers fans are having one heck of a weekend. First there was the nine-player trade that brought over Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto from Boston. And now … well … this is probably the best news item of all. Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports that television broadcaster Vin…

    The party is most definitely on in Chavez Ravine. New Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez strutted to the plate to a rousing standing ovation in his first at-bat Saturday night at Dodger Stadium and connected for a three-run homer on the second pitch he saw from Marlins starter Josh Johnson. The Dodgers lead 4-1 at…

  5. Adrian Gonzalez to hit cleanup in Dodgers debut tonight

    Aug 25, 2012, 6:04 PM EDT

    Adrian Gonzalez Getty

    Matt Kemp was nice enough to pass along the lineup card for tonight’s game between the Marlins and Dodgers at Dodger Stadium. The newly-acquired Adrian Gonzalez is indeed in the starting lineup and will bat cleanup against right-hander Josh Johnson. And to think, just two months ago the Dodgers were using Juan Rivera in the…

  6. The nine-player blockbuster between the Red Sox and Dodgers is complete

    Aug 25, 2012, 5:10 PM EDT

    Carl Crawford Adrian Gonzalez

    UPDATE: The trade has been announced.

Rubby De La Rosa and Jerry Sands are reportedly the players to be named…

  7. Red Sox could seek out big-name targets this winter

    Aug 25, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    The Red Sox have had an average payroll in excess of $170 million the last three years. With Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett departing and David Ortiz, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Cody Ross all set to become free agents, they’re currently looking at something less than half of that for 2013. It figures to give…

  8. Now that it’s final, what should we make of the Red Sox-Dodgers mega deal?

    Aug 25, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v Seattle Mariners

    I’m still shaking my head at the Dodgers-Red Sox deal, which is now finalized. Among the things that wouldn’t have made sense to me if you told me about them this time yesterday: I’m surprised that the Dodgers — whose owners just paid $2 billion for that team — took on $271 million in financial…

  9. Picture of the Day: Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto on the way to L.A.

    Aug 25, 2012, 3:20 PM EDT

    Aug 25, 2012, 1:01 PM EDT

    Casey Kelly

    Here’s an interesting note as we wait for the mega-deal between the Red Sox and Dodgers to become official. According to Bill Center of the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Padres are expected to call up prospect right-hander Casey Kelly to make his major league debut Monday against the Braves at PETCO Park. Of course, Kelly…

  11. Dodgers set to get Gonzalez, Crawford and Beckett from Red Sox

    Aug 25, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    Carl Crawford Getty

    8:23 a.m. EDT update: Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the deal is “pretty much done.” Beckett and Crawford have waived their no-trade rights and both teams have signed off on medicals, so we’re presumably waiting on approval from the commissioner’s office. 6:40 a.m. EDT update: According to Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com, the blockbuster deal…

  12. Updated: Where would the Red Sox go minus Gonzalez, Crawford, Beckett?

    Aug 24, 2012, 8:55 PM EDT

    Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez

    The deal isn’t yet official, but it looks like Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto are all Los Angeles bound in exchange for four minimum-salaried players and  free-agent-to-be James Loney. That would cut $58.25 million in 2013 salaries from Boston’s payroll and leave the Red Sox committed to only four players for…

  13. Breaking down the Red Sox-Dodgers megadeal

    Aug 24, 2012, 8:32 PM EDT

    Adrian Gonzalez

    If FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi is correct, the Red Sox and Dodgers have agreed to the following nine-player deal: To L.A.: Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett, Nick Punto To Boston: Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster, Jerry Sands, Ivan De Jesus, James Loney It’s not official yet, as the Red Sox still need Crawford and…

    Aug 24, 2012, 6:45 PM EDT

    Hanley Ramirez, Matt Kemp, Shane Victorino

    Assuming the Josh Beckett-Adrian Gonzalez-Carl Crawford trade gets done, here’s what the Dodgers are going to look like as they go down the stretch in 2012 and what the Opening Day 2013 lineup could look like: 2012 Rotation: Clayton Kershaw Chad Billingsley Chris Capuano Josh Beckett Aaron Harang Lineup: LF Shane Victorino 2B Mark Ellis…

  15. Not just Adrian Gonzalez: The Dodgers have claimed Josh Beckett too

    Aug 24, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Josh Beckett Getty

    Claiming Adrian Gonzalez is one thing, but claiming Josh Beckett too?  Yep, the Dodgers have done that, Sean McAdam of CSNNE confirms. This is a little different than the Adrian Gonzalez claim.  For one thing, the Red Sox may very well just want to be rid of Josh Beckett. The fan base has turned on…

  16. The Dodgers claim Adrian Gonzalez on waivers, but don’t get too excited yet

    Aug 24, 2012, 2:04 PM EDT

    adrian gonzalez ap

    As is the case with almost every player who makes more than the league minimum, Adrian Gonzalez was placed on waivers by the Red Sox.  Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Dodgers have been awarded the waiver claim on Gonzalez. Which, while interesting, doesn’t necessarily mean anything. August waivers are revocable…

  17. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 20, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Pirates Cardinals Baseball

    Pirates 6, Cardinals 3: For the second straight year the Pirates play a nineteen inning game. This time, unlike the game against the Braves in which they were royally screwed, the Pirates won. Thank you Pedro Alvarez and Andrew McCutchen who drove in runs in the 19th, Alvarez with a homer. They had to burn…

    Aug 19, 2012, 3:53 PM EDT

    Kelly Shoppach

    Sources told the New York Daily News that former Red Sox catcher Kelly Shoppach, who has since been traded to the Mets, used Adrian Gonzalez’s phone to express the team’s displeasure with Bobby Valentine last month, leading to the meeting that has caused such a stir this week. Three sources suggested to the paper that…

  19. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 17, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Chipper Jones

    Braves 6, Padres 0: Chipper Jones with two mammo yicketties on Chipper Jones bobblehead night. One of his homers was his 2,700th career hit. Say what you want about the guy, but he has always had a flair for the dramatic and has always risen to the occasion. Even kinda lame occasions like bobblehead nights.…

  20. Bobby Valentine sticks up for Adrian Gonzalez, both get tossed

    Aug 15, 2012, 11:16 PM EDT

    Adrian Gonzalez, Bobby Valentine

    Does a double ejection count as a bonding experience? After Adrian Gonzalez was tossed for arguing a pitch in the eighth inning Wednesday against Baltimore, Bobby Valentine took up the complaint on his behalf and was also ejected. The Red Sox went on to lose the game 5-3. It was just the second career ejection…

  21. Adrian Gonzalez is also denying the Yahoo! Sports report

    Aug 15, 2012, 9:35 PM EDT

    valentine gonzalez ap

    Red Sox owner John Henry sent an email to the Boston beat writers on Wednesday morning denying a claim made by Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports that a number of star players, including Dustin Pedroia and Adrian Gonzalez, asked for manager Bobby Valentine to be fired in a closed-door meeting last month with the organization’s higher-ups. And…

  22. Adrian Gonzalez is trying to kill the messenger and you shouldn’t buy it

    Aug 15, 2012, 9:12 AM EDT

    Adrian Gonzalez, Bobby Valentine

    Something that stuck out the most to me in all of the Red Sox drama last night was Adrian Gonzalez trying to trash Jeff Passan’s report of the coup he and the Red Sox players reportedly attempted last month: “I don’t know what you’re talking about … I’ve never seen that guy in our clubhouse…

  23. Dustin Pedroia doesn’t think Bobby V. should be fired

    Aug 15, 2012, 8:52 AM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    Dustin Pedroia told Rob Bradford of WEEI that he doesn’t think Bobby Valentine should be fired: “I don’t think Bobby should be fired,” he said. “Listen, we haven’t played well. I mean, that’s the bottom line. I’m not going to blame anything on Bobby, and I don’t think anyone else is. It’s on the players.…

  24. Can the Red Sox keep both Adrian Gonzalez and Bobby Valentine?

    Aug 14, 2012, 7:24 PM EDT

    Adrian Gonzalez, Bobby Valentine

    It was mostly “no comment” in the Red Sox clubhouse this afternoon after the Yahoo! Sports report stating that Red Sox players met with ownership to try to get Bobby Valentine fired as manager. CSNNE.com’s Joe Haggerty has the quotes: “I just want to play baseball, man,” Dustin Pedroia said, declining to confirm or deny…

  25. Jason Varitek for Red Sox manager

    Aug 14, 2012, 5:55 PM EDT

    Jason Varitek

    I tried this nine months ago with little support. Let’s see if it flies better now. Terry Francona lost the Red Sox clubhouse. Bobby Valentine never had it in the first place. What the Red Sox seem to want is one of their own running the team, and who is more one of their own…
