Reports surfaced before Christmas that lefty specialist Mike Gonzalez had just two teams bidding for his services.
Those reports were wrong.
The Milwaukee Brewers, an apparent hidden third team, has stolen Gonzalez away from both the Washington Nationals and the Cincinnati Reds.
It is unclear how much money he will be getting, but the deal is for just one year.
The Reds are not in desperate need of another bullpen arm, as they have many in house options that they can try. However, Gonzalez would have made a nice piece.
BEST OF MAXIM
And so while you're sitting around waiting for Adam LaRoche to sign that three year deal with the Red Sox, say goodbye to the ugly old Washington Nationals batting practice caps, and say hello to the new ones.

According to reports, the Milwaukee Brewers are closing in on a deal for LHP Mike Gonzalez with a physical to take place after January 1. Gonzalez, 34, was one of the pitchers GM Doug Melvin reportedly had on his radar when discussing the relief market last week. Like the recently signed Tom Gorzelanny, Gonzalez has spent time with the Pittsburgh Pirates among other teams...
The Milwaukee Brewers and free-agent left-hander Mike Gonzalez have reached agreement on a one-year contract, multiple media outlets reported Friday. The contract calls for Gonzalez to earn $2,25 million, plus incentives, according to ESPN.com. Gonzalez still must pass his physical, and because league offices are closed for the New Year's Day weekend, the deal probably will...
The Milwaukee Brewers have made a move to address their most pressing need: relief pitching.
The Brewers have agreed to a one-year deal with free-agent left-handed relief pitcher Mike Gonzalez, according to a source.
Gonzalez, 34, had a 3.03 ERA in 47 appearances with the Washington Nationals in 2012. He held left-handed batters to a .179 average last season.
And there's Gio Gonzalez pumping iron at the University of Miami the other day - "Curtesy of the university of miami #houseofpain" says Gio on Tweeter. Still, those guns have nothing on Roger Bernadina's.

According to numerous reports, the Sox have set their sights on Adam LaRoche, the Nationals first baseman and "by far the most desirable free agent first baseman remaining," according to Adam Kilgore in the Washington Post.LaRoche is 33 and coming off one of the best years of his career. This seems to hinge on the still-not-done Mike Napoli deal. Like so many things, it seems.
With Mike Gonzalez signing with the Milwaukee Brewers, the Washington Nationals are left to wonder where their bullpen stands. They have just two lefties for the 'pen on the roster right now, Zach Duke and Bill Bray. Both pitched in the minors last years. Now, Washington must search for some reinforcements. One such option may be J.P. Howell.
