I have been avoiding talking about this on the blog and in real life. I am absolutely crushed that Boston traded Mookie Betts. I knew it was coming, but I still felt unprepared when it happened. And with the somewhat unexciting return it was even worse. Alex Verdugo is a fine player, but he's no Mookie.
Oh well, I survived when Wade Boggs signed with the Yankees. I survived when Roger Clemens signed with the Blue Jays. I survived when Mo Vaughn signed with the Angels. I survived when Nomar Garciaparra was traded to the Cubs. I will survive this. Time to pick a new favorite player.
By the way, this card was sent randomly by the Zippy-zapper himself. Thanks Kenny.
