UPDATED: Sox reportedly in talks with Padres for Gonzalez

According to Ken Rosenthal at foxsports.com, the Red Sox are "working hard to obtain Padres first baseman Adrian Gonzalez," although Rosenthal's sources indicated a deal is not close and may not happen because of the demands of new Padres general manager Jed Hoyer, the former Red Sox assistant GM. Speculation has centered on pitcher Clay Buchholz and center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury.

 

ESPN's Jose Arangure Jr. tweeted Wednesday afternoon: "Source close to A Gonzalez believes he'll be traded to Red Sox within next 10 days. Does this mean deal will happen? No. But momentum is there."

Warren and Wilfork questionable

FOXBORO — Patriots defensive lineman Ty Warren said Wednesday morning he’s “not making any predictions” about whether or not he’ll be able to play Sunday against the Bills. “I’m minding my situation with treatment and rehabilitation, as we all do when we’re injured,” Warren said Wednesday morning when asked about his ankle injury, something that’s been dogging him all season. He also wouldn’t handicap the chances that fellow defensive lineman Vince Wilfork would play Sunday. Wilfork suffered a foot injury in Sunday's win over Carolina and missed a sizable portion of the second half. For more Patriots news, check out our football blog, It Is What It Is.

Epstein on Jason Bay

Red Sox GM Theo Epstein stopped short of saying that outfielder Jason Bay's tenure in Boston is over, but the team architect did refer to Bay's time as a Red Sox in the past tense when discussing the free agent. 

 

“I don’t want to say the door is completely closed on any one player out there," said Epstein. "But Jason, obviously, in his year and a half here did an outstanding job for us. That’s a trade that we would make again any day of the week. Whatever team does sign him is getting a quality person and a quality player. We feel like we landed a quality person and a quality player here today ourselves [in Mike Cameron].”

 

Bay's representative, Joe Urbon, rejected the Red Sox' most recent offer late last week. At that time, the Sox moved on and made the decision to pursue pitcher John Lackey and Cameron, an outfielder who will require fewer years and dollars than Bay will...

Cameron on D&H: Sensitive to Ellsbury

Following his introductory press conference at Fenway Park, new Red Sox outfielder Mike Cameron visited with the Dale & Holley show for a brief interview. Cameron recalled playing for Terry Francona and alongside NBA star Michael Jordan in the minors, saying of Francona, "It's a beauty and a blessing to have a guy like that."

 

Cameron, who has almost exclusively played center field in his long career, also discussed coming to a team that has a young center fielder in Jacoby Ellsbury. "I know how sensitive it is, when people start to come in, when you play a premier position like he has," Cameron said. "That was one of my things to be sensitive toward that, because I know what's it's like to experience that, to have that snatched away from under you. That was my first thing to do was to make sure and check and see if he was cool about me coming here in a position of where we were."

Brady: Moss is 'huge' part of team

 

FOXBORO  --  Tom Brady believes in Randy Moss and he made that clear on Wednesday morning in Foxboro. Brady said during his weekly press conference with reporters that no one works harder to prepare himself for the upcoming game than Moss. "He's a great competitor," Brady said. "He works extremely hard. He's a huge part of this team. They don't break down all the film and see what we see and see what the other team is trying to do, game-plan wise. Randy's a great part of this team. He's a leader, he's a captain. He's a great teammate for all of us. You're not going to find anybody in that locker room that doesn't enjoy being around him. I love playing with the guy." Brady was reminded of the criticism thrown at Moss this week from former teammate Cris Carter and hall of famer Jerry Rice.
