Red Sox have benefited more than expected from the Mookie

Seeing how things turned out in the 2020 season in the MLB, everyone would think that Boston Red Sox they came out losing in the trade that sent Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The pact caused a stir in February 2020. Betts was an established star who had just won his third Silver Bat and fourth Gold Glove in 2019, and was heading to California with David Price. In return, Boston hosted some young players.

The rest of the story is known: Boston lived a complete nightmare in 2020, finishing last in the AL East with a balance of 24-36 while the Dodgers they were celebrating their first World Series title in 32 years with Betts (this year badly injured by injuries) as the linchpin.

But this season everything looks different. The Red Sox management endured all kinds of criticism but ultimately they seem to be favored.
