The 'Highest-paid Major League Baseball players' quiz”

Red Sox president Sam Kennedy expressed disappointment after former Red Sox outfielder and current Dodger Mookie Betts signed a 12-year, $365 million contract extension on Wednesday.

"It's generally hard to trade a talented participant of Mookie's caliber, but let us revisit this discussion in 12 years", Werner mentioned on WEEI Radio, "Hopefully you [the hosts] and I will both even now be right here". "That's a very, very long-term deal for a team to swallow". You fellas know as properly as I do that the historical past of extended-time period offers is checkered at greatest. "So I've got nothing to be complaining about regarding our past, and we think we made the right decision at the time".

According to reports, MassLive.com, the Red Sox attempted to spread Betts on at least three separate occasions, with the latest offer exceeding $ 300 million.

The coronavirus pandemic, exclusively its economic ramifications, likely adjusted his needs in Los Angeles.

After failing to reach an agreement, Boston sent Betts along with left-hander David Price to the Dodgers as part of a five-player agreement. Both players were integral in the team's 2018 Earth Series title.

Boston got Alex Verdugo and two prospects in the deal. "It was his desire to try free agency".

Betts was traded to the Dodgers in February for the final year of his contract, but then pandemic delayed the planned March start of the Major League Baseball season and there were worries Betts might never play a regular-season game for the Dodgers if th season were wiped out. However, now bets will probably never make it to the open market.

Before the first game of his Dodgers career on Thursday, Betts knelt during the anthem, and Roberts supported his choice, his own opinion altered after reflection.
