The Boston Red Sox have acquired the player they have wanted for the past three seasons. Adrian Gonzalez will be coming to Boston in a trade that nets the Padres three top prospects and a player to be named later that is not a top prospect.
The Padres received the #1 Red Sox prospect in Casey Kelly, Anthony Rizzo, and Reymond Fuentes. Fuentes is the cousin of current Met Carlos Beltran.
The Red Sox have a negotiating window to agree to a contract extension with Gonzalez, who will play first base for the Sox. Kevin Youkilis will move to third base, and there is almost no chance the Red Sox re-sign their third baseman from last season, Adrian Beltre.
