…………(Baseball)…………..

Padres….Say they were not willing to trade a ton of young talent away and take on huge contracts of David Price-Mookie Betts and pay half of contract of Will Myers to make the Red Sox deal go thru….Padres would have had to commit to (27M) Betts contract….(46M) Price contract…(30M) Myers contract payoff….Not interested in spending (103M) total to rent Betts for 1-year.

Dodgers…Executed Mookie Betts-David Price deal by taking on (27M) for Betts and (46M) of Price contract….Dodgers rearranged payroll by shifting payroll…moved (2M) Alex Verdugo in trade….Dealt away Kenta Maeda (12M)…Joc Pederson (9M)…Ross Stripling (2M)…Moved (25M) in those deals…Prior had saved (18M) on Hyun Jin-Ryu and (5M) Rich Hill…when they left as free agents…Final tally: Dodgers removed (48M) players from last year…to add Betts-Price (42M) LA will pay this year….and Dodgers kept all their top prospects.

Dodgers-Angels….Trade expanded…will send OF-Joc Pederson..P-Ross Stripling..OF-Andy Pages to Halos for 2B-Luis Refigno and 2-minor league prospects.

Red Sox…Huge media-fan criticism directed against owner John Henry and the Fenway Sports group for giving up on the season with the Betts trade…saying Fenway Group is worth 6.6B but not willing to pay state of the art money to a superstar like Betts….says it sends a bad message to Red Sox fans.
