Recently, the San Diego Padres have hired a new GM, Jed Hoyer. Jed Hoyer has served in the Red Sox organization since 2002, this could definitely make negotiations much easier. The main reason I am blogging about this is that, with Hoyer in San Diego, the Red Sox could much easier negotiate with him for Adrian Gonzalez. The Red Sox heavily pursued Gonzlez before the Trade Deadline, instead the picked up Victor Martinez. Gonzalez has numbers too good to ignore, however, his amazing line was .277, 40, 99 as Gonzalez' numbers would probably jump even more playing in Fenway Park rather than the pitcher-favored PETCO park in San Diego. If the Sox got Gonzalez, could hold on to Bay and Alex Gonzalez, and maybe sign a strong starter, they could win the World Series next year!
