A-Gon Monkey Wrench?

You knew it couldn't be as smooth as it seemed. Adrian Gonzalez felt obliged to state to a Mexican website that there is no agreement in place with the Red Sox on a contract extension. Want an ominous quote? OK, how about this:

"Nothing about that is true. It's false. I haven't signed any contract. We discussed the trade, but we didn't reach any agreement, and we didn't negotiate numbers. The only thing I have for sure is the contract that I had already signed with the Padres, and what I can tell you is that over the course of the season we're going to negotiate to reach an agreement."

Merry Christmas, Nation!
