Check That: Adrian Gonzalez IS Going to Boston

According to a tweet by Jon Heyman, Adrian Gonzalez and the Boston Red Sox have agreed to terms.

One source close to the situation said that Theo Epstein walked into the meeting room holding a boom box over his head playing “Please Come To Boston” by Dave Loggins, a la John Cusack in “Say Anything”. In response, a teary-eyed Gonzalez broke down and signed the contract. Not a surprise when your name is “Adrian”.

    There is no way Gonzalez would be a good fit for the Cubs.
    He is a totally classy guy, he isn’t a whiner or a hot dog, and he puts forth 100% effort on every play.
    Zambrano, Soriano, and Ramirez would find him offensive, both personally and professionally.
