Adrian Gonzalez Extension in the works?

John Paul Morosi of Fox Sports is reporting the agent Adrian Gonzalez is set to visit Red Sox camp next week.

Thoughts are a rumored long-term extension could be negotiated at that point.

There has been wide speculation a deal will be signed after opening day so the Red Sox circumvent a luxury tax for 2011.

If Gonzalez would happen to become a free agent after the 2011 season things could get interesting with Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder set to test the free agent market as well.

You have to wonder if three $20 million plus per season first basemen on the market at one time would hurt the market for their services?

From all reports Gonzalez wants to stay with the Red Sox beyond 2011 and a deal seems imminent.

Pujols is of course a one in a generation player that should have no trouble getting a $25 million plus per season long-term deal.

Fielder could be the most interesting of the three. He should be motivated this season knowing whats on the line.
