Other than hitting for average, power, playing elite defense, running the bases well and being a homegrown player who is beloved by all, Mookie Betts doesn’t do much well.
Totally get where the Red Sox are coming from.
Mookie Betts is one of the most talented Red Sox players ever. The team just traded him away in-part to get under the luxury tax. Let that one sink in
When Red Sox fans think of Mookie Betts, they will think of this at-bat. It was the defining moment of the winningest season in Red Sox history.
So let’s recap what has happened since the Red Sox damaged the World Series trophy in 2018
-Finished 19 GB of 1st place to NYY
-Forced to fire Alex Cora
-Under MLB investigation
-Traded Mookie Betts and David Price
“Did you seriously give away Mookie Betts because you didn’t want to pay him?”
Red Sox owner John Henry:
Nobody happier tonight than Joe Kelly's son Knox, whose favorite baseball team is Mookie Betts.
Mookie’s last moment with the Red Sox (until he re-signs next offseason)
Between getting Gerrit Cole, the Red Sox trading Mookie Betts/tanking and the Astros going through their whole cheating fiasco, I don’t think this offseason could’ve gone better for the Yankees
Mookie Betts is gone. Sum up your feelings in 5 words
Mookie Betts and Cody Bellinger in the same outfield together. That will play.
The youth of Red Sox Nation is not taking the news of Mookie Betts being traded well.
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
If #RedSox didn’t want to give Mookie Betts upwards of $40 million a year, genuinely, I get it. Trade him. Don’t let him leave for nothing. But he’s one of the top players in baseball. You have to get a better return than that, especially from a #Dodgers team so desperate to win.
Who would have imagined that 15 months and 8 days since the Boston #RedSox won the 2018 World Series championship, they would fire their GM (Dave Dombrowski), their manager (Alex Cora) and trade away Mookie Betts and David Price in a virtual salary dump?
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.
They did it. They really traded Mookie Betts. I’m sick over this.
He was never going to resign here. He's not worth $400 million. You get a chance to reset the CBT # for 2021 - trading Mookie Betts was the right call.
