However, agent Scott Boras shut O'Dowd down when it came to Gonzalez, unsurprisingly.
However, Augusto Cardenas, a Venezuelan baseball writer, says otherwise . Gonzalez confirmed to Cardenas that Boras and the Rockies have indeed been negotiating a long-term contract.
What that means isn't clear. It's possible Gonzalez is simply referring to O'Dowd's inquiry that was shut down. If not, however, things could be interesting in Colorado if they can lock up Gonzalez for one or two of his free-agent seasons.
