Betts for Adell?

142 posts in this topic

The Red Sox might go into a rebuild mode in the off season and have doubts about Mookie Betts signing long term.  Would you trade Jo Adell to get a year (and the first chance at signing) Mookie? Adell is still a prospect. Mookie is a legit MVP caliber player.

You can’t be serious. 

I just do not believe he is a legit MVP every year.  Mookie Betts playing for any other team but Boston or NY is just a very good player.

So what you’re saying is that Trout would hit like 75 homers with the Red Sox. 

In an off-year.

 

I'm meh on Betts..........I think his numbers are excellent but are positively affected by the lineup he is in.  I think Trout would be Trout anywhere.  When Betts leaves the Red Sox, I guess we will see whether the lineup he was in matters.

Nah, I'm more referring to the trend of outfielders coming to the Angels and then playing well below their career norms.

Taylor, you forgot the part about how he doesn’t care about being a champion and that he’s too much of a coward for a “real” sports town.  That’s a very key part of the narrative !
