The Red Sox have placed Adrian Gonzalez on waivers, and he evidently has been claimed by the Dodgers. The Red Sox are already out of contention; would it be a good move to trade Gonzalez and build for the future?
dann212: "Even though i doubt something will happen, this could really help both teams in the long run. The dodgers would need to give up a lot (Lee, Webster, Gould, Loney, and mayb Gordon) but it would almost guarantee the west for LA. As for boston, this trade would give them a lot of cap space, and would help them eat some of becketts contract so that they could trade him easier."
jimmymaynard3: "This one has me scratching my head. Because of A-gon, there was no room for Youk. Because of Youk there was no room for Beltre.... yada yada yada....At this pace, I will seriously consider ignoring this team and pull for my home state Rangers. I've been pulling for the Sox since I was a young boy and letting A-gon go will be the epitome of stupidity. Then again, as of late, NOTHING the Sox do has the word "smart" tied to it."
cgreene159: "Next up: The Red Sox look to trade Dustin Pedroia to the NY Mets in exchange for a Gatorade cooler and three spare bats."
Tigers24682468: "Gonzalez is a great player with a terrible contract. If Boston could get out from that contract and on top of that get a great prospect or two it would be smart. However, I do not see the Dodgers moving Billingsley. I think it would be centered around Loney and a prospect like Z.Lee who has a long way to go to be effective in the majors. Realize when the RedSox got Gonzalez he was relatively cheap which means they would have to give up more to get him."
dlkwo02: "Gonzalez is the face of that team, they can't trade him, give them Beckett."
