Hot Stove season, that is. Those mysterious "they" people say that the Sox have agreed on a preliminary deal with the Padres for Adrian Gonzalez. I'm actually pretty surprised they were willing to give him up, since Gonzalez was pretty much the face of the Padres. Luckily, no major leaguers from our side will get sent to San Diego; names of the minor leaguers in question are still being thrown around, but the Sox are probably gonna trade their top pitching prospect, Casey Kelly, plus a few other guys.
The Sox are also looking at Carl Crawford and Jayson Werth (even though that would royally screw up our outfield), but no word on either of those talks.
