As the dust settles from what felt like a month-long saga that ends with the Dodgers trading for Mookie Betts and David Price, we can maybe, finally, take stock of what has happened in the world of Dodger baseball.

After almost an entire week of controversy, the Dodgers and Red Sox have reportedly agreed to a trade that will see both outfielder Mookie Betts and lefty starting pitcher David Price end up in Los Angeles. In return, the Red Sox will receive outfielder Alex Verdugo, catching prospect Connor Wong and infield prospect Jeter Downs.
The more time that passes with the prospective mega-trade between the Dodgers, Red Sox and Twins staying unresolved, the more baseball fans are getting the feeling a deal conceivably may not happen.
While some fans believed they would see both Mookie Betts and David Price land in Los Angeles much sooner, there is some uncertainty lingering around the completion of baseball’s biggest deal this winter, as the Dodgers, Red Sox and Twins are still working to find a common resolution.
While none of the participating teams have yet to officially announce the details of their impending deals, it’s certainly safe to say that front office boss Andrew Friedman will have shaken up the roster of the Dodgers once all the formalities are signed and sealed.
After almost an entire winter of rumors building momentum, the Dodgers, Red Sox and Twins have reportedly agreed to a three-team trade that will see both outfielder Mookie Betts and lefty starting pitcher David Price end up in Los Angeles.
