This week, the team discusses the Red Sox and Dodgers, and Twins nearing the finish line on a blockbuster trade to send former AL MVP Mookie Betts and former Cy-Young winner David Price to the Los Angeles Dodgers, with the Red Sox landing Alex Verdugo and Twins prospect Brusdar Graterol, and Kenta Maeda heading to Minnesota. From there, we discuss the medical hold-ups preventing the deal’s completion, as well as the other delayed trade that would send Joc Pederson and Ross Stripling across town from the Dodgers to the Angels. To wrap up, we dig into Steve Cohen’s ownership with the Mets ending before it ever began, the latest in the Astros sign-stealing scandal, and Pete Roses’ application to be reinstated into the MLB.
