Heath Bell discussed in Red Sox talks for Adrian Gonzalez, Cubs also interested in Gonzalez

Looks like there are other interested parties involved in this Adrian Gonzalez trade.

Sources: #Cubs also pursuing A. Gonzalez. Multiple teams besides #RedSox involved. #Padres #MLBless than a minute ago via web


Oh this is endearing, Adrian would prefer to be traded to Boston.

if adrian gonzalez is traded, he hopes its boston, i hear. could have something to do with their ability to win & to give him teixiera dealless than a minute ago via web


I think if I was one of these teams I'd be concerned that Gonzalez still is 4 months away from being able to swing a bat due to his recent shoulder surgery.  As a Padres fan I'm worried that it could affect his trade value, hopefully interested teams can overlook that risk.

And we could lose Heath Bell too:

Heard this: The Padres and Red Sox are making progress in Adrian Gonzalez talks. If completed, this would take Boston out of the Adrian Beltre talks. Also: One of the possible combos discussed, among many, has included Heath Bell going to Boston.less than a minute ago via web


UPDATE: Okay Heath Bell is not part of the deal.

Just was told #Padres-#RedSox deal would only involve Adrian Gonzalez and is "close." No Heath Bell. #MLBless than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone

Just heard from a second source that #Padres-#RedSox deal for Adrian Gonzalez is very close. #MLBless than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone



Source: #Padres "absolutely" will trade Heath Bell. One yr left in arb, $4M last yr. FA closers avail include Soriano, Jenks. Teams with poss interest in #Padres' Bell: #WhiteSox, #Angels, #Rangers, #Marlins, #Cardinals, #BlueJays, #Rays. Affordable for 1 yr. #MLB #MLBless than a minute ago via web

Second source offers completely different view on H. Bell, saying it's "highly unlikely" #Padres will move him this off-season. Reasons #Padres would keep Bell: 1. Don't want to further upset fans; 2. Don't want to deplete 'pen; 3. Bell would bring more in July. #MLB #MLBless than a minute ago via web
