Red Sox fans saw Mookie Betts develop into one of the best players in baseball in Boston — but now they'll have to watch his career continue in Dodger blue.

Seeing Betts traded to Los Angeles after Boston couldn't sign the outfielder to a long-term extension was a tough enough blow for Red Sox Nation.

But seeing the Dodgers ink Betts to a 12-year, $365 million extension on the eve of the 2020 season was the cherry on top. After all, it's not like the Sox are a small-market team. They had the biggest payroll in MLB in 2019, spending almost $230 million.
