    The trade is centered around Alex Verdugo

    Apparently a 3rd team is involved and Price may not be headed to LA.

    I cant believe they just traded Prime Mookie Betts

    Well, that's minus two 30 million/year contracts. At least that weight is off. And maybe our man Mookie will be back next year, but right now the thought of a 37 mill per year contract isn't on me mind

    A third team is indeed involved in the deal, per the Boston Globe’s Alex Speier (Twitter link). Verdugo and a player from the third team will go to Boston

    Better not be Wil...

    Mookie is one of my all time favorite Red Sox players. I don't really care what the return is, I probably wont be content and can't believe this actually happened.

    Sources: #MNTwins had talks with #RedSox, #Dodgers in Mookie Betts and David Price deal. Unclear if they’re the third team involved.

    It needed to be done because of the excesses of DD contracts. We will eat at least a part of the Price contract and will lose Mookie for a year, but will reset in 2020 and remain at least somewhat competitive. I will wait to see what we got in return but expect 2021 to be where we make significant moves to improve.
