Twins acquire pitcher Kenta Maeda as part of three-team trade

Step aside 2012, we have a new Trade of the Century involving the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers. The third team involved in the trade is believed to be the Minnesota Twins, according to various reports. He likely slots in to the front end of that group, and fortifies a perceived weakness for Minnesota. Per Baumann, the Red Sox - who he deems a "de facto public institution" - rid themselves of a "once-in-a-generation player" all to save money that, in the grand scheme of Boston's operation, amounts to relatively little, adding to the narrative that Major League Baseball owners prioritize profit over everything else.

After a winter filled with rumors, the will-they, won't-they drama surrounding the Boston Red Sox and outfielder Mookie Betts has reached a conclusion. David Price reportedly is also in the deal, and the likely outcome is that part of his remaining contract would be paid down to offset his salary.

Betts was set to become a free agent after the 2020 season. Betts won AL MVP honors in 2018 and has claimed four straight Gold Gloves.

PSG star Neymar blasted referee Jerome Brisard for booking him following an outrageous piece of skill against Montpellier . After Neymar cooled down at the break, he set up Mbappe to round Carvalho and score his 14th league goal of the season.

For his six-year career, all with the Red Sox, Betts has a.301/.374/.519 batting line with 139 homers, 470 RBIs and 613 runs in 794 games. He is coming off another stellar season in which he hit.295/.391/.524 with 40 doubles, 29 home runs, 135 runs scored and 80 RBI in 150 games while also playing elite defense in right field. The Dodgers' depth allowed them to stomach the potential value given away and take comfort in the knowledge that they'll add Betts to a lineup that already includes reigning NL MVP Cody Bellinger, Justin Turner, Max Muncy and top prospect Gavin Lux. The 2012 Cy Young victor had a 4.28 ERA in 22 starts last season.

Price, slowed by injuries numerous times in his career, went 7-5 with a 4.28 ERA in 22 starts previous year.
