Boston Red Sox Fans React to Possibility of Mookie Betts Never Playing for Dodgers



Major League Baseball and the Player’s Association just agreed to a deal that has basically put the Los Angeles Dodgers in a precarious situation after what was supposed to be an amazing offseason.

As some of you may know, the Dodgers sent away some young studs in Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs (acquired in the Puig/Kemp/Wood trade) and Connor Joe for former AL MVP Mookie Betts along with veteran pitcher David Price and cash.

The deal was set to push the Dodgers to the top as World Series favorites after coming up short to the Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox, two teams who have been caught cheating in the same World Series the Dodgers came up short in.

This was the year of redemption, but much like the hopes and dreams for many people, the Coronavirus pushed a big fat pin that bubble.

The deal that MLB and the Players Association just agreed to basically states that IF this season is not played out, players will still earn service time. So a player like Mookie Betts — who is slated to become a free agent after the season — could quite possibly earn a year as a Dodger, but never would have suited up in a regular season game.

Now, fans in Boston are rejoicing and coming out on top of this deal. Seems to be a big change from a few weeks ago, when reports out of Boston were how badly Alex Verdugo was being treated by the fans in Boston for his unique style and moxy.

Check out some reactions Boston Fans have been sharing online:

What do you think of this situation? Is there anything the Dodgers can do about it?

The biggest question is what does Mookie Betts think of the situation?

Would he sign a one-year contract and risk injury just to make this right?

  1. The Dodgers and their luck just aren’t worth it. You must hate yourself to associate yourself with this kind of pathetic luck and embarrassment. I stopped caring and investing emotion a long time ago. Whatever happens happens if they finally win once great if not I’m not wearing it

  2. If Mookie never plays an inning for the Dodgers, Mookie never playing an inning for the Dodgers will be the least of our worries.
    As a die hard Red Sox fan, who is furious with our ownership, I hope Mookie plays a lot of innings for the Dodgers, this year.
    God Bless America

  3. Don, I just love Dodger Stadium and the hot dogs. The whole atmosphere. I never expect them to win it all. I like going, enjoying the game, win or lose.
