Online Gambling – Red Sox Trying to Make a Huge Move
It is likely that no move will be made this off-season that would impact odds at Internet gambling companies more than this one as Gonzalez is one of the top players in the league.
Would be a Great Move
The move to get Gonzalez would be a great move for Boston. He is one of the top hitters in all of baseball and he is an excellent defensive first baseman. His acquisition sets would set up the entire infield for Boston. Kevin Youkilis would move over to third base which would set Boston up at the corners for a long time to come.
Padres Would Get Three Prospects
Even though it sounds bad that the Padres would trade away their best hitter in Gonzalez it would be a pretty good deal for San Diego. They would lose Gonzalez after next season because he would become a free agent. Instead of getting nothing for him, the Padres would get three of the best prospects in the Boston system. They would get pitcher Casey Kelly, first baseman Anthony Rizzo and outfielder Reymond Fuentes. Kelly is the top prospect in the Boston system but it may be a while before he makes an impact in the Major Leagues. Rizzo was the third rated prospect in the Boston system while Fuentes was also a player in the top 10 in Boston’s minor leagues.
The Red Sox would get a great player in Adrian Gonzalez. Last season he hit .298 with 31 home runs and 101 RBIs and that was in a pitcher friendly park in San Diego. He was fifth in the National League in on-base percentage (.393), ninth in slugging (.511). He has won two Gold Gloves in his first five full seasons playing first base. In his five seasons with the Padres, Gonzalez hit 161 home runs and had 501 RBIs.
Padres Set for a Big Fall
Last season the Padres were a major surprise in online gambling at Internet gambling companies. If they don’t end up as one of the worst teams in the league this season against the odds at SBG it would be a surprise. They could lose Gonzalez and they have already lost right-hander Jon Garland, shortstop Miguel Tejada, catcher Yorvit Torrealba and they are not going to sign Scott Hairston, Tony Gwynn Jr., and Chris Young.
