The Boston Red Sox’s trade and payroll nightmare is over. Their trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers, sending Mookie Betts and David Price out west in return for $60 million in payrolls relief and young talent, is finally completed. What was the hang-up in the deal and did the Red Sox get a better return for their efforts?
On Monday’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, we also discuss another Dodgers deal that fell through and the Houston Astros’ continuing issues with their sign-stealing scheme that apparently went higher up in the front office than MLB originally led everyone to believe.
Also, a little bit of Oscars talk, though I didn’t expect Pat Ryan to show much interest in Parasite. As I mentioned, this is the kind of Best Picture winner that leads some people to say the Oscars are out of touch with the general public. To that, I say the Oscars were plenty in touch with the filmgoing audience.
