Boston Red Sox got absolutely fleeced in Mookie Betts trade

Let’s get something out of the way right off the bat: I’m a diehard Red Sox fan. I always have been and I always will be. Nothing this team has ever done or will do in the future will change that. I’m also more than old enough to not get too emotionally attached to certain players because I understood long ago that at the end of the day Major League Baseball is a business and big league ballplayers are, like the rest of us, just trying to make as much money as they can.

With all of that said and out of the way, in the wake of the Mookie Betts trade last night, I’ll come right out and say it: the Red Sox got utterly fleeced by the Dodgers.
