    Never for a moment did I think Betts had a chance of becoming a Dodger. Knew all those rumors were shit

    Actually, they are under the gun if their goal is to get under the luxury tax. They are over by about $20 million, so trading Betts now gets them under with a little wiggle room. Trading him at the deadline doesn’t get them under, so they would be forced to move someone else like Price, or pay the tax. If they are in the hunt (which is likely) trading at the deadline would be a hard sell to the fans as well.

    I think it’s either trade Betts now, or pay the luxury tax.

    Apparently the Sox and Dodgers talks stalled over the third piece. The rumor is the Sox are pushing for one of the better pitching prospects in the org and the Dodgers have said no more after giving up two high end prospects already.

    Lol and here’s Heyman saying that talks have heated up again. Dodgers seen as favorites with Padres on the periphery. I also would not be shocked if a team like the Phillies or Rangers have quietly been involved this whole time.
