Red Sox, Padres Continue To Talk Adrian Gonzalez

ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney reports that the Red Sox and Padres continue to talk about a possible Adrian Gonzalez deal.

Olney notes that the two teams spoke at length last night, and it's expected that they will resume conversations today.

The Padres have said that they'll listen to offers on Gonzalez, but the team is under no pressure to deal the all-star slugger.

The Red Sox continue to look for an impact player to add to their roster, and they still remain involved with the Indians for Victor Martinez and the Blue Jays for Roy Halladay.

Olney believes that some of the names mentioned in a possible deal for Gonzalez are young pitchers, Clay Buchholz and Junichi Tazawa, along with young slugger Lars Anderson.

Up to this point the Red Sox have seemed reluctant to deal Buchholz, but it's becoming more obvious that if the Red Sox want to pry an impact player away from another team, they'll have to part with the 24-year-old starter.

For what it's worth, Olney still feels that among these three players the one most likely to be a Red Sox by Friday is Victor Martinez.
