Adrian Gonzalez is not going anywhere

Padres’ General Manager Jed Hoyer on the incessant Adrian Gonzalez speculation:

“There’s certainly been a lot of interest. A number of teams have
inquired about him. I think we’re obviously willing to listen on
anything, but he’s a great player, he fits our team, he fits our
payroll structure very well. So he’s certainly not a player
we’re looking to move. I think that’s been the way we’ve addressed it
all winter. Teams have inquired, but we’ve certainly said the same
thing over and over: He’s not a player we’re looking to move.”

Not that this will stop Red Sox fans from assuming that Hoyer is duty bound to trade his best player to Boston.
