I'm gonna start a 3rd that indicate Price may not be going to LA and my thread will win.

Thread title is misleading. It says it's possible a 3rd team is involved, not that there is.

We'll find out soon enough I guess.

I'm planting my flag in the I HATE IT camp and I don't particularly care about the return. A generation's Yaz is gone because of the luxury tax. Gross.

So if I'm reading this correct the Sox aren't getting any prospects in this deal and are getting a player from this unnamed 3rd team with Verdugo? The hell?

We're in the dumbest timeline. Canceling my MLB.tv subscription after starting it in 2003. This is the dumbest, dumbest, dumbest thing. He's the best homegrown player since Yaz, and this is over money.

i will never, ever understand the whole payroll reduction thing for a team valued in the billions owned by a sports group valued at many more billions. i hate this so much. emotions are high, but i'm sorry, despite all the championships in the world, unless there's something we don't know, this ownership group makes no sense.

I’m out. Why should anyone watch a single game in 2020? This makes them significantly worse.

Last I was this down on a team was 1992.

Yeah, I’ll be following you with that cancelation. (Not because of Mookie, but it doesn’t help.)

Despite 4 championships in 16 years, I feel compelled to pelt John Henry with rotten fruit and piss on his grave when he dies over this.

What a colossal mistake.

Cuz it's baseball? The Red Sox?

Pretty easy decision, can’t pay him 35 million a year until he’s nearly 40. Do what you gotta do.

This isn’t the Lester debacle, not close really.

If Verdugo is the only significant piece coming back I'll be infuriated.
Doesn't he have a messed up back too? This is infuriating. Fuck the team for this, I sure as hell will not find myself buying merch or anything of the like this year like I normally would (not that it matters one bit in the scheme of things).

Seems fitting that for the 100th anniversary of Ruth's sale they trade their best player in decades because of money issues.

So between getting rid of Price and not having to re-sign Mookie (out of sight, out of mind), this is basically a giant salary dump, right?
