Dodgers/Red Sox Trade


Dodgers/Red Sox Trade

I think it was a good deal for both teams. Dodgers are trying to win now, especially after they were most likely cheated out of two titles in 2017 & 2018. Dodgers are the clear favorites in the NL.

Red Sox knew they were weaker than both the Yankees and Rays even with Betts. They lost a tremendous player in Betts, but also got rid of Price's contract which is a huge savings. Plus, they won't have to pay Betts $35+ million a year. That is a lot of money to give any player. Has not helped the Angels even make the playoffs by paying Trout. Signing Machado didn't help the Padres.

My fear is that the Indians just lost their best potential trade partner for Lindor in the Dodgers, by letting the Red Sox deal Betts first.

Interestingly enough, Dodgers didn't give up any of the big prospects mentioned previously in a Lindor deal - more to come?

they traded pederson too

Re: Dodgers/Red Sox Trade

Don’t sleep on the Lindor to Cincy rumors. They surprised me every step of the way this offseason.

Re: Re: Dodgers/Red Sox Trade

I liked Pederson, but he is a "3 true outcomes" guy who hasn't shown he can hit LHP. He'll replace Calhoun on the Angels. That deal isn't completely done BTW.
