Gonzalez to be flipped?

I'm thrilled to see Gonzalez on the team, but keep in mind that there are other teams still wanting to acquire his services. What plans does Mr. Schuerholz have in mind for Mike G? Here's a recap of rumblings during the winter meetings.

Gonzalez to the Yankees for Proctor and Melky Cabrera

Gonzalez to the Red Sox for Coco Crisp and Craig Hansen

The Yanks and BoSox are teams that usually will go out of their way to get a player they want. Meaning they'll sacrifice either alot of $$ or make certain players expendable. Atlanta has shown rumored interest in all of these players. Proctor would give the Braves another penhand while Cabrera would be suited for LF. The RedSox offer is more of the same. Crisp and Cabrera could move to center if Andruw was to leave. Also Rocco Baldelli could enter the picture somehow but the D'Rays are stubborn when trading players.

I wouldn't mind seeing a deal with the Red Sox happen...Crisp would definitely fill the void at the top of the order and Hansen looks like a good young pitcher.

Either way, our bullpen looks to be one of the best in the NL.

bh- I agree, if it came down to those two options I would rather choose the deal with the BoSox over NY.

Hansen is younger with more upside and Crisp seems to have more pop in his bat over M. Cabrera.
