Mookie Betts and David Price Traded to the Dodgers


Recommended Posts


Congrats to the Dodgers finally acting like the LOS ANGELES Dodgers and making a real attempt to do more than just win games April-September.

 

Even though this was as gift wrapped as can be to them. Congrats!

 

Boston on the other hand are a fucking joke.

 

Minnesota, I dont even know.

I’m as big a Red Sox fan as I am a marlins fan (I usually fly out to Fenway and catch a series or two each season) but Boston 100% had to do this for two reasons: they offered Mookie a large extension that he turnt down and made it clear that he will test free agency. So rather than get nothing or at best a comp pick that may never pan out, they got a very good major league talent. Second reason is they had to get rid of as much of the albatross that is Price’s contract ($32MIL for each of the next three fuckin seasons!!!). How do you know the ReD Sox won’t go blank check next offseason and sign Mookie because they were able to get most of price off the Books? Just like we’re seeing here, sometimes you have to take a step back in order to put yourself in position to jump forward.

The same albatross contract that Red Sox ownership signed off on right?

 

Deal will get done, its an issue with that pitcher from the Twins, it will be figured out in short order, wont prevent this deal from happening.

Dodgers get Betts, Price and 48M (half of Price's remaining salary)

 

Red Sox get Verdugo, Downs and a catching prospect.

 

 

Dodgers get Graterol and a prospect

 

Twins get Maeda and cash

SS prospect Jeter Downs goes to Red Sox, lol.

Supposedly this was such a hold up because Boston was being a bunch of jackasses and trying to hold the Twins hostage from what I hear.

 

Fuck the Red Sox for so many reasons.

And we would have known none of it if they just waited for the trade to be official.

Boston? Yeah maybe. They won a title in 1918 and 2018, so 2104 isn't out of the question to be next.
