Boston-This offseason, as the Boston Red Sox traded away megastar Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers, many of the Red Sox faithful held up hope he would return to Beantown.
”Look, it's a one-year thing. Once the luxury tax gets straightened out, he’ll be back”, said fan Mark O'Shea.
On Wednesday, Mookie Betts signed the biggest deal in MLB history. A 12-year extension bringing his total contract to a 13 year, $392 million deal.
But that hasn't deterred Red Sox fans.
”He’s still coming back”, claimed Bostonian Patrick O’Dwyer.
”This is just temporary”, said Red Sox fan Jimmy O’Rourke, ”he’s right where we want him.”
”Yeah, he signed that extension cuz he know he’ll be playing back in Fenway”, stated Michael O’Malley, Red Sox season ticket.
The Red Sox open the season 20/1 odds to win the World Series, while the Yankees as Dodgers are already guaranteed to be there.
