What a busy off-season for Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. First, he won the Silver Slugger for AL first basemen (which probably should’ve gone to Miguel Cabrera, but whatever). And now he’s been named the cover athlete for MLB 12 the Show.
That might not be the greatest news for Red Sox Nation. Twins catcher Joe Mauer appeared on the last two editions of the game, and he was barely able to take the field last season (is there an MLB the Show curse? who knows).
