Now am I happy that the Red Sox got rid of David Price and his contract? Yeah. Price was annoying to watch. Most Red Sox fans rooted against him rather than cheer for him. His antics in the media made you roll your eyes.
But the player everyone will be talking about is Mookie Betts. The message that the team sent was a brutal one. They don’t care about the fans or the product on the field. They just wanted to save money.
Fun fact folks, MLB doesn’t have a salary cap. If you want to pay a guy there is nothing really stopping you. If the Red Sox wanted to pay Mookie Betts they could have.
Ownership and the front office will say that they saved so much money and the Red Sox will be better for the future. but having millionaire owners say that trading your best player is a great idea is nauseating.
The Red Sox gave up their best player, a guy that was homegrown. Boston basically showed players that you can put in all the work and you will just be sent away.
