Dodgers, Twins Trade Likely On Without Boston, Mookie Betts to LA Still in Works

Another morning, another Jon Heyman tweet that gives Dodger fans hope.

If you’re getting deja vu, so are we over here at Dodgers Nation. We have written on this back and forth at least once. Or maybe twice. It’s been interminable. Dodger fans have collectively felt like this has swung back and forth for an eternity.

I have read many tweets from Dodger fans who are so tired of this debacle that they are willing to just let Mookie Betts remain a Red Sock. A former MVP. In some ways I cannot blame them, this has been emotionally exhausting, but I digress.

Will This Deal Really Happen?

My personal premonition is that this deal was always going to happen. The pressure from the MLBPA definitely helps. One would have to posture that the negative attention to the Red Sox front office would push them into completing the deal in some fashion. A first year GM would not want to earn the reputation of acting in bad faith. As always, time will tell. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
