Well, F: Adrian Gonzalez To Be Traded to Red Sox

Chicago Cubs

Reports are breaking that the Padres and Red Sox have agreed in principle to a deal for Adrian Gonzalez that will involve pitching prospect Casey Kelly, and probably at least first baseman Anthony Rizzo.

I can tell you that the Cubs were working frantically until the last minute to pull off the trade, going so far as pulling in a third and fourth team to try and make the deal work, but apparently, the Red Sox prospects were too much for the Cubs to match.

We’ll have more when the deal is official.
