The Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox are close to completing to completing a deal that would send Adrian Gonzalez to the Dodgers, according to multiple sources. There are two proposed mega deals on the table right now, things are serious, and a deal could be done today. The first proposed deal would send Josh Beckett and Adrian Gonzalez to the Dodgers. The other is a reported nine-player deal that would send Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, and Nick Punto to the Dodgers. The Red Sox would get some players consisting of Allen Webster, Zach Lee, Rubby De La Rosa, Jerry Sands, James Loney, and possibly others.

Though nothing is finalized yet, a deal is expected to happen. The Red Sox will get prospects in either deal, in return the Dodgers will get some cash from the Red Sox.

Here is a breakdown of all the big contracts the Dodgers may be absorbing in the next 24 hours.

Adrian Gonzalez will earn $21MM per season through 2016 and obtain a raise to $21.5MM for 2017-18. The total is about $131.82MM when factoring in the remainder of his 2012 salary. The Dodgers are not on his no-trade list.

Josh Beckett will earn $15.75MM per season through 2014. Beckett can veto any deal.

Carl Crawford will earn $20MM in 2013, $20.25MM in 2014, $20.5MM in 2015, $20.75MM in 2016 and $21MM in 2017. His contract allows him to block trades to two teams, no word if the Dodgers are one of them.

Nick Punto earns $1.5MM per season through 2013.

Things are about to get very interesting. It seems that A-Gon will be a Dodger one way or the other. One of the biggest trades in MLB history is in the final stages, stay tuned.
