The Padres would be stupid to move Adrian Gonzalez. He is the best player on their roster and will be their best player for the next 5-8 years. On the other hand, Heath Bell should be expendable, I believe in the Billy Beane/moneyball theory that relief pitchers are inconsistent and you should sell high. I wouldn’t trade Bell for 3 grade b prospects but I would for an elite prospect, grade b prospect, and 2 throw ins.
What people fail to realize is that trading Adrian Gonzalez would be the equivalent of the Brewers trading Prince Fielder, or the Twins trading Justin Morneau. (Those 2 players are the ones that project closely to him, baseball reference also lists Carlos Delgado, Paul Konerko,  and Fred McGriff).

For the Dodgers sake, I hope the Padres trade Adrian Gonzalez.
