On Tuesday evening news broke that the Boston Redsox have traded arguably one of the top 2-3 guys in the entire league to the LA Dodgers along with former Toronto Blue Jay’s pitcher David Price.
The return the Red Sox got was pretty minimal considering they got one top prospect for an MVP calibre player in Betts.

The most insane thing about all of this is the fact that a human being actually turned down 30 MILLION A YEAR to play baseball the only sport where fat guys like me can go 3/10 and still be an Allstar. Mookie Betts told the Red Sox that 10 years and 300 million dollars just simply was NOT enough and that it would take 12 years and 420 million dollars. He sure sounds like a quality human!
Regardless of what selfish shit sack someone must be to say no with a straight face to 300 million dollars the good news for Jay’s fans is the Red Sox now SUCK they lost their best player and a pretty decent pitcher. Betts helped lead the Red Sox to the World Series title in 2018, and he was named American League MVP that year as well
The Red Sox are in a free fall and regardless of how things are in Toronto just being a Toronto sports fan means when a team from Boston falls you all win.
