Adrian Gonzalez

  1. Red Sox lineup: Adrian Gonzalez in RF, Kevin Youkilis at 1B, Will Middlebrooks at 3B

    May 22, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v Philadelphia Phillies

    With six outfielders on the disabled list and Kevin Youkilis coming off the shelf the Red Sox have gotten creative for tonight’s game against the Orioles, shifting Adrian Gonzalez to right field so Youkilis can play first base and Will Middlebrooks can remain at third base. Gonzalez, Youkilis, and Middlebrooks are batting 4-5-6 in Boston’s…

  2. Cody Ross out indefinitely with fractured bone in left foot

    May 21, 2012, 5:12 PM EDT

    Jose Molina, Cody Ross

    Cody Ross, who’s been playing every day in the Red Sox’s outfield because of injuries to Carl Crawford and Jacoby Ellsbury, is now joining them on the disabled list with a fractured bone in his left foot. There’s no timetable yet for his return, but manager Bobby Valentine indicated to reporters that the Red Sox…

  3. Adrian Gonzalez is NOT happy with the state of umpiring

    May 17, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    adrian gonzalez ap

    Adrian Gonzalez was not pleased with Hunter Wendelstedt’s strike zone last night, and vented about the state of umpiring after the game: “How are you supposed to have a professional at-bat with these umpires nowadays? Gosh. The first pitch in my last at-bat wasn’t even close. You’re up there, trying to have a professional at-bat…

  4. You asked me questions on Twitter. So I shall answer them.

    May 10, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    The Question

    I spent a lot of yesterday on Twitter talking about gay marriage. Short version: I’m pro-gay marriage. Exceedingly so, as I believe it a basic civil right to which I have yet to see any legitimate argument in opposition that comports with the civic culture and history of the United States. I got grouchy at…

  5. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 10, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Mets 10, Phillies 5: Cliff Lee was OK in his return, but he was on a pitch count and the bullpen — including reverted-to-longman-work Kyle Kendrick — got shellacked. Again. Ike Davis drove in three.  The Mets so thoroughly own Citizens Bank Park this year that the Phillies are gonna have to launch some awkward…

  6. Chris Davis goes 0-for-8, gets the win in 17-inning game

    May 6, 2012, 7:46 PM EDT

    Chris Davis

    It wasn’t pretty, but in many ways, Chris Davis had the most remarkable day on a baseball field that I can ever remember. Starting at DH for the Orioles, Davis fanned in his first five at-bats, hit into a double play in his sixth and grounded out in his seventh before moving to the mound…

  7. Phil Humber far from perfect in loss to Red Sox

    Apr 26, 2012, 10:15 PM EDT

    AP Phil Humber

    Phil Humber tossed the 21st perfect game in MLB history Saturday against the Mariners, but things were different from the very first batter tonight against the Red Sox. Humber walked leadoff man Mike Aviles before striking out Ryan Sweeney swinging. After Aviles stole second base, Dustin Pedroia singled and Adrian Gonzalez delivered an RBI double.…

  8. Bobby Valentine is a convenient scapegoat, but he’s not what’s ailin’ the Sox

    Apr 23, 2012, 8:53 AM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    Well, not totally anyway. He has his share of the blame — some odd bullpen choices in the past week for one — but the “Bobby V has killed the Red Sox” stuff is probably out of hand at the moment. And, as Rob Bradford notes, the reason is pretty understandable. It’s Boston, and this…

  9. Postgame drama in Boston: Bobby V part of closed-door meeting, players refuse to talk

    Apr 21, 2012, 10:28 PM EDT

    bobby v reuters

    The home clubhouse at Fenway Park was not the most relaxing of places Saturday evening after the Red Sox blew a 9-0 lead to the Yankees in an eventual 15-9 loss, falling to 4-10 on the year. “I think we’ve hit bottom,” first-year Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said in his postgame chat. “That’s what…

  10. Cole Hamels: not a fan of homegrown stars leaving via free agency

    Apr 20, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Cincinnati Reds

    Cole Hamels, who grew up a Padres fan, spoke to the Union-Tribune yesterday about how much of a bummer it was to see players leave via free agency when he was a kid: “I mean, I loved that team, and all of a sudden it disappeared. I remember watching Fred McGriff before that, loving that guy, and…

  11. UPDATE: Padres prospect Casey Kelly gets sore elbow examined

    Apr 17, 2012, 6:52 PM EDT

    Casey Kelly

    Update: An MRI on Kelly’s elbow came back negative, MLB.com’s Corey Brock reports. Kelly will go to extended spring training for a two-week rehab and could rejoin Triple-A Tucson afterwards. /// Casey Kelly, who was considered the prize of the Adrian Gonzalez deal when the Padres acquired him from the Red Sox, is having a…

  12. And in other news, Dan Iassogna is still an idiot

    Apr 8, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    John Farrell, Dan Iassogna

    Tigers reliever Phil Coke came into Sunday’s game against the Red Sox with two outs, a man on second and a pair of lefties due up in Adrian Gonzalez and David Ortiz. Apparently, he prefered to face Ortiz. Coke threw the first pitch behind Gonzalez’s head and then plunked him in the back with the…

  13. Jose Valverde: 49-for-49 in saves in 2011, blows one on Opening Day, vultures win

    Apr 5, 2012, 4:21 PM EDT

    Valverde_Jose

    UPDATE: Yup, he vultured it!  After blowing his first save of the season, Jose Valverde gets the win when Mark Melancon couldn’t keep the Tigers off the bases and Alfredo Aceves couldn’t keep Austin Jackson from singling home the winning run. 4:08 PM: Jose Valverde was absolutely perfect for the Tigers last year, saving all 49…

  14. And now, the top 20 jerseys sold

    Apr 5, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals' Freese watches his game winning home run with Texas Rangers relief pitcher Lowe during the 11th inning in Game 6 of MLB's World Series baseball championship in St. Louis

    MLB and the MLBPA just released the list of the top 20 jerseys sold in the past year. The list contains the usual gang you’d expect. Except I was somewhat surprised at David Freese at number 20, but I guess that World Series homer was quite the moment for Cards fans. Anyway: 1.    Derek Jeter, New…

  15. Running down the rosters: San Diego Padres

    Feb 24, 2012, 6:11 PM EDT

    Cameron Maybin

    One of the surprise teams of 2010, the Padres will try to rebound this year from a 2011 season that saw them lose an additional 19 games and finish 71-91. And just to make it a bit more of a challenge, the team will give it a go without ace Mat Latos, who was sent…

  16. The Red Sox: small market team?

    Feb 9, 2012, 3:39 PM EDT

    Red Sox logo

    The Red Sox obviously haven’t had an active offseason. They got a new manager, picked up a couple of relievers and signed Cody Ross. Not exactly the stuff that an Alpha Team on the Alpha Division is expected to do, I suppose.  Jon Heyman questions this approach and wonders what it all means for the…

  17. 2012 projections: top 10 first basemen

    Feb 6, 2012, 9:54 PM EDT

    Joey Votto

    Last night’s go at the catchers led to some hard feelings apparently, so let me make it clear, these are just OPS projections for 2012, they’re not meant for a hard statement on the game’s best at a position. Anyway, here are the top 10 at first base: 1.017 – Miguel Cabrera (Tigers) – 589…

  18. Ike Davis is the NL’s second-best first baseman?

    Jan 24, 2012, 7:32 PM EDT

    Ike Davis, Miguel Montero

    With Albert Pujols and now Prince Fielder following Adrian Gonzalez to the American League, the NL has bled some remarkable talent at first base the last two winters. That’s one sure Hall of Famer and two more legitimate possibilities switching leagues while still in their primes. Left is Joey Votto and, well… Reds: Joey Votto…

  19. So much for Prince Fielder: Cubs acquire Anthony Rizzo from Padres for Andrew Cashner

    Jan 6, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Anthony Rizzo

    Anthony Rizzo‘s future in San Diego was in doubt as soon as the Padres acquired Yonder Alonso from the Reds in the Mat Latos trade last month and today they traded Rizzo and Zach Cates to the Cubs for Andrew Cashner and Kyung-Min Na. Rizzo was awful in 49 games for the Padres as a…

  20. Will the Padres trade first base prospect Anthony Rizzo?

    Dec 17, 2011, 4:15 PM EDT

    Anthony Rizzo

    The Padres acquired Yonder Alonso from the Reds today as part of their massive haul for Mat Latos, which has led many to wonder whether prospect first baseman Anthony Rizzo will become a trade chip. With that in mind, Padres general manager Josh Byrnes told Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio this afternoon…

  21. Reds acquire right-hander Mat Latos from Padres in multi-player deal

    Dec 17, 2011, 1:30 PM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v San Diego Padres

    UPDATE: The Reds just announced that they have acquired Latos from the Padres for first baseman Yonder Alonso, right-handers Edinson Volquez and Brad Boxberger and catching prospect Yasmani Grandal. Wow. This one is looking a lot better for San Diego. 1:12 PM: Well, the Reds have landed the top-flight starter they’ve been looking for all…

  22. Someone really good is getting snubbed from the All-Star Game next year

    Dec 8, 2011, 5:50 PM EDT

    Paul Konerko

    The American League now has all of the following at first base (presented with 2011 stats): Albert Pujols (Angels): .299/.366/.541, 37 HR, 99 RBI Miguel Cabrera (Tigers): .344/.448/.586, 30 HR, 105 RBI Adrian Gonzalez (Red Sox): .338/.410/.548, 27 HR, 117 RBI Mark Teixeira (Yankees): .248/.341/.494, 39 HR, 111 RBI Paul Konerko (White Sox): .300/.388/.518, 31…

  23. Projecting Albert Pujols’ 2012 performance for the Angels

    Dec 8, 2011, 2:20 PM EDT

    Albert Pujols

    One of the most difficult factors to try to account for in projecting player performance is the league switch, particularly when it comes to hitters. We tend to think of pitchers having an advantage in facing a largely new set of hitters when they switch circuits. It generally works the opposite way with hitters. Still,…

  24. Deducing Albert Pujols’ mystery team

    Dec 8, 2011, 3:28 AM EDT

    Albert Pujols

    ESPN’s Jayson Stark surmises that the mystery team chasing Albert Pujols is a club with an established first baseman that it would need to trade in order to make room for a shiny new three-time MVP. So, let’s run through the league to see who might qualify. I’ll exclude the Cardinals and Angels — the known…

  25. Red Sox didn’t match Marlins’ offer to Heath Bell

    Dec 5, 2011, 6:40 PM EDT

    Heath Bell

    In the news conference to announce his signing with the Marlins on Monday, Heath Bell said the Red Sox made him an offer, but that it came up short of the three-year, $27 million pact he got from the Marlins. “I thought, ‘Red Sox would be cool. I’ve got an inside track. I know [Adrian…
