Another huge move. I can't stand him but admit he is a hell of a five tool talent the Red Sox have traded Mookie Betts to the Dodgers. I do not believe the Dodgers had to part ways with their young stud IF Gavin Lux who is penciled in as their starting 2B this season. I can't recall a recent off season where so many big name players have switched teams. This move is startling. Although because Betts is a FA next year the rumors have suggested the Red Sox will move Betts for payroll reasons ( he is going to ask for a fortune next year) I am still a bit shocked they would trade such a popular player. It reminds me of the time the Red Sox parted ways with CF Fred Lynn and then C Carlton Fisk. Two ultra talented highly popular players who were hugely popular that were shockingly given the heave ho. Hell Fisk was a fellow New Englander. Baseball is a tricky sport to predict before the season but it sure seems like the Dodgers and the Yankees are on a collision course for the World Series. I think the Dodgers parted ways with OF Alex Verdugo, a good player but no great loss but I don't know the rest of the details of the trade.
