Adrian Gonzalez

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

    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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

    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…

  5. 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…

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

    Aug 24, 2012, 2:04 PM EDT

    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…

    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…

  8. Report: Kelly Shoppach used Adrian Gonzalez’s phone to set up Red Sox meeting

    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…

  9. 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.…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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.…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. Red Sox players “blasted Bobby Valentine to owners”

    Aug 14, 2012, 4:11 PM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    In news that will surprise absolutely no one, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports has some very juicy details about Red Sox players not loving their time with manager Bobby Valentine. According to Passan players “blasted Valentine to owners John Henry and Larry Lucchino during a heated meeting called after a text message was sent by…

  17. Orioles’ Manny Machado homers his way to history in first four games

    Aug 13, 2012, 4:21 PM EDT

    Manny Machado AP

    Based on his modest numbers in the minors it seemed like a questionable decision for the Orioles to promote Manny Machado from Double-A to the majors just a month after his 20th birthday, but there’s nothing questionable about his first taste of the big leagues. Machado went 2-for-4 with a triple in his MLB debut,…

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

    Aug 6, 2012, 5:42 AM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Tigers 10, Indians 8: I was at this game, and I gotta tell ya, until the 9th inning it was one of the more lame, butt-dragging tie games you’ll ever see. Omar Infante and Austin Jackson kept hitting, but apart from that the highlight until then was Joe West getting all ejecty for no good…

  19. Padres lose hot-hitting rookie catcher Yasmani Grandal to oblique injury

    Aug 1, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Yasmani Grandal AP

    Rookie catcher Yasmani Grandal has provided a huge spark for the Padres since being called up on June 2, hitting .312 with five homers and a .947 OPS in 24 games, but now he’ll miss at least two weeks with a strained oblique muscle. He’ll be eligible to return from the disabled list in the…

  20. Dustin Pedroia: “The first hundred games have been (expletive)”

    Jul 28, 2012, 9:42 AM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia Reuters

    The Red Sox lost 10-3 in last night’s series opener against the Yankees. It was their second straight loss and their sixth in their last seven. They now sit at 49-51 through the first hundred games of the season and currently find themselves in last place in the American League East. Via Scott Lauber of…

  21. Dustin Pedroia returns from disabled list

    Dustin Pedroia, Cody Ross

    After 15 days off due to a thumb injury, Dustin Pedroia was activated from the disabled list Thursday and will be back in the lineup for the final game of the series against the White Sox. Mauro Gomez was sent down to make room, as the Red Sox opted to keep both Pedro Ciriaco and…

    Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman wipes sweat from his forehead during the first inning of the Orioles' MLB baseball game against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis

    Twins 19, Orioles 7: This was a multifaceted butt-whupping, but it got started with Chris Tillman’s butt. Which is a shame considering that five short months ago he was in the Best Shape of His Life. All of those runs for the Twins despite hitting only one homer. It was a Gashouse Gorillas-style conga line…

  23. David Ortiz to undergo MRI on right Achilles on Tuesday

    Jul 16, 2012, 11:49 PM EDT

    David Ortiz Getty

    Everything appeared to be falling into place for the Red Sox on Monday night after Adrian Gonzalez delivered a go-ahead three-run homer off White Sox left-hander Leyson Septimo in the bottom of the eighth inning, plating David Ortiz and Carl Crawford, who was making his long-awaited season debut. However, the club was dealt another tough…

    I stopped doing these for some reason. Sorta forgot about them. But it seemed like a lot happened this weekend, so for those of you with lives that don’t entail them being tied to the Internet all weekend, here’s what you missed: Bill James doubles down on the Joe Paterno defense. It’s like watching a…

  25. Adrian Gonzalez hurt his back being nice to a kid

    Jul 14, 2012, 8:03 PM EDT

    Adrian Gonzalez

    Maybe the Red Sox can add fraternizing with children to the ban list. Adrian Gonzalez is sitting out a second straight game Saturday because of a sore back, the cause of which finally came to light today. According to the first baseman, Gonzalez was at the mall Friday afternoon when he “ran into a family with…
