Thread: Mookie Betts and David Price have been traded to Dodgers

Heck even Sam Kennedy the president of the Red Sox said those rumors were also untrue and that he was disappointed that Mookie sign a long term extension with the Dodger. He went on to say that they tried to sign Mookie to an extension but both side couldn't come together that's part of business. Now with those comments from Kennedy that would lead someone to believe that the Red Sox were still holding hope at having another crack of signing Mookie Betts in FA.

    The Red Sox made their decision on Betts pretty much right after the 2018 World Series. They never really attempted to engage Betts in contract extension talks. Kennedy repeatedly tried to soften the blow of losing Betts, saying last September that it would be “difficult” for the team to retain both J.D. Martinez and Betts.

    It would be one thing to have made a serious effort to keep Betts in Boston, only to see him turn the Red Sox down and force the club’s hand in trading him. But the ball was always in Boston’s court. The Dodgers paid to retain elite talent; the Red Sox chose not to.
    Heres some proof that what I said was not even remotely bullshit....

    I still dont understand why Boston didnt pay them.....Avoiding a luxory tax this year but the payroll will be a lot lower next year....Bite the bullet this year...Other salaries fall off next year

    Price opted out of the season because of COVID-19 concerns, so he wouldn't have been much use.

    I do find it credible that Mookie didn't want to stay in Boston long-term.

    The story of the Red Sox disrespecting Mookie in arbitration hearings should disturb all their fans, even those who think Betts isn't worth his contract. Word like that gets around, gives an organization a bad name, and could cause others to leave, and even make prospective recruits think twice about joining.

    Of course some will insist it's all about the money, but if you knew you were going to be rich beyond your wildest dreams no matter where you lived, there's a good chance other factors may matter, too.

    Let’s just call it like it is .Boston smothers athletes the media the fans it’s debilitating for some guys .The Dodgers And LA have tons of distractions with Hollywood etc the media are very kind to players especially star players .Mookie made his decision along time ago .I look at Mookie like a lot of athletes now they choose the easiest path of least resistance.Mookie Betts is gone and I don’t give a shit about him now honestly .I hope his career turns to shit. Yup I do not like this player why would I after 2018 ?mookie chose the LA Dodgers over my team he can eat a mountain of cow shit

    But how do you really feel?
    The Yankees could go 0-162 and it wouldn't be enough
