The Red Sox decided to pull the trigger on the Adrian Gonzalez trade, according to multiple sources (for example, here). The Red Sox will announced Gonzalez with a press conference tomorrow, but I’m hearing that they agreed to do the trade without an extension for Gonzalez (no extension is in place as of right now) – which was, in part, because of the Cubs’ active pursuit.
It’s certainly a bummer. No way around it.
