Moorad Finds Adrian Gonzalez Extension Unlikely

Padres CEO Jeff Moorad stated the obvious yesterday regarding first baseman Adrian GonzalezTim Sullivan of the San Diego Union-Tribune has the quote:

"While I’d be thrilled to have him part of the organization for the long term, the early signals indicate his cost will be greater than our ability to pay."

Gonzalez's agent John Boggs agreed, and explained that he expects a trade:

"The feeling we're getting is more than likely (the Padres) are going to have to trade Adrian because (they) can't afford him."

These quotes are far from groundbreaking, so consider this your official Gonzalez Trade Prediction post.  Tell us the acquiring team and players given up.  Keep in mind that at $10.25MM over the next two years, any team willing to surrender the right players could acquire Gonzalez.  Given their first base incumbents, though, the Cardinals, Brewers, Phillies, Reds, Yankees, and Twins appear unlikely.
