    Red Sox, Dodgers and Twins Blockbuster trade

    Dodgers:

    - Mookie Betts
    - David Price

    Red Sox:

    -Verdugo (from Twins)
    -Brusdar Graterol (From Twins)

    Twins:

    -Kenta Maeda

    Its believed that the Dodgers will nose trade Joc Pederson to the Angels in a seperate deal.

    Price is owed 96$ Mil over the next 3 years. Red Sox will pay about half of that.

    Dodgers are literally playing with Monopoly money.

    Twins are trying to back out. They want more from Red Sox other than Kenta Maeda from the Dodgers.

    Red Sox balked after seeing Brusdar Graterol's medical review.

    Twins have said they will send Boston a top 20 prospect but that's apparently not all the Red Sox are asking for.

    Ugh. Hate that this blew up.

    Normally I hate the Twins trading away prospects but the front office knows how short the window is and that they have a chance to control the Central right out of the gate this year.

    I hope this goes through without the Twins having to give away the farm system.

    It's been revised, two separate trades now:
    Dodgers get Price, Betts and cash from Red Sox as well as Graterol and the 67th pick in this year's draft from the Twins.

    Red Sox get Verdugo, SS Jeter Downs and C Connor Wong from the Dodgers.

    Twins get Maeda and cash from the Dodgers.

    Pending physicals again.
