Yankees: Get Gerrit Cole
Red Sox: Lose Cora, Betts, Price
Mets: Lose new manager after two months. Savior billionaire owner pulls out of deal
Astros: Lose GM, manager, have
biggest cheating scandal in recent sports history
What. An. Offseason. https://t.co/2ZGF6IjTmB

Paraphrasing but after the A's traded Rickey Henderson, Bill James wrote something like "The whole point of having a team is to get a Rickey Henderson and keep him for as long as possible." That's the first thing that came to mind about the Mookie Betts trade.
Price will indeed accompany Betts to LA. Verdugo and more go to Red Sox
100 years apart and money is the issue in both cases
Red Sox trade Mookie Betts to the Dodgers on February 4, 2020
Red Sox trade Babe Ruth to the Yankees on January 5, 1920
A wounded team has a much-needed spark, a devastated city has renewed hope. The Dodgers have acquired Mookie Betts, representing the most "right now" move of the Andrew Friedman era. He might be precisely what this team, and its city, needs. ... https://t.co/TFzPnJftJP
The youth of Red Sox Nation is not taking the news of Mookie Betts being traded well.
*baseball szn approaching*

*dodgers acquire mookie betts & david price*
Just an absolutely silly idea to test Mookie Betts under any circumstances.
Globe writers working on the anonymous sources badmouthing Mookie Betts on his way out the door
Mookie Betts is the modern version of Willie Mays. That’s who’s leaving town. The modern version of Willie Mays.
Mookie Betts understands his importance to the union and wanted to get to free agency, as Gerrit Cole did, to push the free agent $ ceiling for the union brethren. That is his right. Leaving Red Sox with a choice: deal him, or get almost nothing for him if he walked away.
DODGERS FANS AFTER THEY JUST GOT BETTS AND PRICE BUT WILL STILL LOSE IN THE POSTSEASON AFTER GETTING THE ONE SEED https://t.co/GkRvDHJU6U
