Adrian Gonzalez Deal Done, Red Sox Announce Press Conference For 11 A.M.

After much back-and-forth on Sunday -- it went from a done deal to a deal that was done and back again -- but now, multiple reports have Adrian Gonzalez joining the Boston Red Sox via a trade from San Diego. The trade means Boston finally for the player they have been interested in literally for years. And Gonzalez finally got his wish, too

"He's wanted this for a really long time," said the source.

The deal was completed for the originally reported top prospects -- Casey Kelly, Anthony Rizzo and Reymond Fuentes (plus a player to be named later) -- but was done without a contract extension in place. However, it's believed both sides have the parameters in place. 

The delayed extension also benefits the Red Sox financially if they wait until after the 2011 season starts to announce it officially. 

And then, this: late Sunday night, the Red Sox announced they will hold a press conference Monday at 11:00 a.m., "to make a major baseball announcement." Wonder what what it could be.
