Looks like it's this:
Red Sox get: OF Alex Verdugo, IF Jeter Downs, C Connor Wong
Dodgers get: OF Mookie Betts, LHP David Price, cash


In the other deal:

Twins get: RHP Kenta Maeda
Dodgers get Graterol
The Dodgers will include $10 million in the trade and get the Twins’ Competitive Balance B (67th overall) pick in 2020
The clubs also will swap two other prospects. The Twins will send outfielder Luke Raley — whom they received from the Dodgers as part of the Brian Dozier trade in July 2018 — back to his original organization. The player the Twins will receive has not been announced.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

I imagine Betts signs an extension with the Dodgers, a little lower than Trout’s across town.

Based on all his previous interviews I think Betts will be testing free agency.
That said, LAD has a chance to make him comfortable and interested in staying. Either way, I see LAD extending a QO to Betts after the season..

Time will tell..

Imagine caring more about not paying a completely affordable luxury tax than retaining a fan favorite MVP outfielder.

Twins as 3rd team involved. I wonder how.

Or trade him for Verdugo knowing you probably won't win anything this year, reset the luxury and then sign him back in FA.

If they're not going to retain him anyway, it's not a bad deal for Boston. Alex Verdugo is a darn good headliner for any 1 year rental.

Yup. Verdugo is at 2.1 fWAR/3.2 bWAR career in 488 PAs.

He's a good bet to put up around 15 WAR over his five years of team control.

Twins are giving up pitching prospect Brusdar Graterol to the Red Sox as part of the deal.
Twins are getting Kenta Maeda from LAD to help their rotation (a good get that is cost controlled for multiple years)..

Then also imagine that if they dont reset their luxury tax this offseason they probably never would unless they want to blow it up early 2000's astros style and wind up subsidizing most of the Rays' payroll for the foreseeable future. Instead of resigning Betts next offseason, let's just throw $30Mil in a hole and then still need to sign a great corner outfielder, plus continue losing draft picks!

It's not about whether they can afford to do it, it's about whether it makes baseball sense to do so

Dodgers are obviously in a go-for-it year now, with Betts a free agent after this season.

I wonder if they start up conversations with the Brewers for Hader? The pen is the only potential weakness of their super team.

Am I the only one who doesn't understand what the Twins are doing here? Seems like a dumb move on their part.

Had a similar thought. If the Crew is out of it at the deadline, that Dodgers farm system is ripe.

How much cash is my question. That Price deal is absolutely miserable. I projected it at -77mil in value. Verdugo and a top 50 prospect is a great haul for a 1 year contract (QO pick) and 3 years of trash.

Twins did well short term. Maeda's deal is very cost effective. Red Sox clearly won. LAD, well they are better at a really high cost.

At least the Dodgers and Red Sox passed garbage. I hate seeing normal teams fall for taking on the ghastly garbage of the big markets.
