Alex Verdugo Says It’d Be ‘Crazy’ If Mookie Betts Never Played For Dodgers — NESN.com

It feels like a lifetime since the Boston Red Sox traded Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Alex Verdugo Says It’d Be ‘Crazy’ If Mookie Betts Never Played For Dodgers — NESN.com
As you likely may know, Betts and pitcher David Price were sent to the Dodgers on Feb. 11 in exchange for outfielder Alex Verdugo and prospects Jeter Downs and Connor Wong. All five players participated in spring training before Opening Day was indefinitely postponed due to the COVID-19outbreak. And there’s a chance Betts, who’ll be a free agent following the 2020 season, might never play a game for the Dodgers depending on Major League Baseball’s decision regarding the season. On Monday, Verdugo weighed in on the possibility of that happening. “That would be pretty crazy,” Verdugo said, per MassLive’s Chris Cotillo. “That would be pretty nuts. I really haven’t thought about it much, but I think it’s tough. It’s a tough situation, if that is the scenario, for the Dodgers. That’s part of life. We can’t expect these things. I think for the Dodgers, that’s tough. That’s a tough deal. But everything happens for a reason.” It certainly would make for an unusual situation for Betts should the season be canceled. And while some suggest the season could begin as early as July, nothing is certain right now.

How Mookie Betts Reportedly Shocked Dodgers With A Speech On This Topic — NESN.com

When you stand up in front of the team on the first day and essentially call everyone out, says he wants to hold everyone accountable for their effort — not just in the game, but in the workouts – that’s like, all right, you learn what he’s about really fast,” Turner told MLB.com. “Same principle (as Kirk Gibson’s team speech in 1988), just not critical of us. This was him saying this before he knew anybody. Just signs of leadership, it jumps out at you.”
