With Major League Baseball’s opening day just weeks away we near the moment of truth for this questionable team. The offseason certainly did not help a team already coming off a disappointing season, losing some key players and even their manager. Here we are going to set up the best unit possible (ignoring current injuries) […]
It’s all burning down before the season starts. We were told that Chris Sale was going to ramp up rather than throttle back thanks to lessons learned from last year’s slow start. We were told that Alex Verdugo was healthy by his brother on Twitter. We were told he had an oblique injury originally last […]
As the Betts trade finally goes through, we see a major shift in the Red Sox organization. We do not yet know how this impacts Boston’s future, all we know is that this will impact our franchise for years to come. As expected with such a momentous trade, there appear to be massive pros and […]
Finally complete, the second baseman of the future is coming to the Red Sox from the Dodgers, along with the replacement right fielder, and Chaim Bloom got big brother Andrew Friedman to give up a Top 5 prospect from his system.

The guess here, based on all the reporting and sourcing we’ve got, is that yes, in fact, the Mookie Betts, David Price, Alex Verdugo trade is done, and it will be separate from the Twins/Dodgers deal.

He wants to been seen as the master, and Bloom the student. He’s got deals with the Red Sox, the Twins, and the Angels. Bloom just has one deal to think to about. That’s why, apologizes to David Price, Bloom holds the trump card.
In a move anticipated for weeks the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers have to come to an agreement on trade for Mookie Betts and David Price. In exchange, the Dodgers are sending Alex Verdugo and others to the Red Sox. Details are still coming out, but the deal also includes David Price‘s contract […]
From high and low across the baseball landscape calls are coming: Mookie Betts will be traded soon. Is that today, tomorrow, or later this week? No one can say. One thing that 80-90% of pundits and LA area insiders agree on? Alex Verdugo is one piece that is constant in all trade scenarios. That includes […]
