The biggest move of the MLB offseason came just days before spring training with the Boston Red Sox trading Mookie Betts and David Price to the Los Angeles Dodgers as part of a blockbuster three-team deal.
The deal comes after weeks of speculation regarding Betts’ future in Boston with the organization’s desire to shed payroll this offseason. An offseason that already saw the Red Sox part ways with Alex Cora with MLB investigating the team for sign-stealing in 2018, has now seen the team trade one of MLB’s biggest stars.
Meanwhile, the Dodgers sat quietly all offseason hoping to find an elite piece to add to their team. After striking out on the top free agents available, Los Angeles finally struck it big by adding Betts and Price.
As news broke of the stunning blockbuster trade, the MLB world erupted with reactions to the Dodgers becoming MLB’s new super team, Boston giving up on 2020 and the impact for other teams in baseball.
