She wasn't wrong, and I'm not sure the Dodgers' inability to win a title proves otherwise.
Putting aside that she was just trolling, she was
wrong. We can certainly argue that the Sox didn’t get enough in return for Mookie (as has been done about a thousand times on the main board over the last two years). I’m sympathetic towards that view, although it’s often framed as Mookie for Verdugo/Downs/Wong without any mention of contract status of the players involved or the considerable amount of Price’s salary that was offloaded, and without acknowledging that pre-pandemic Mookie was 100% determined to go to free agency.
But more generally, there’s no player in baseball who absolutely should never be traded under any circumstances.
I like Mookie a great deal and wish he hadn’t been dealt. But he’s not the first great player to be dealt, and he won’t be the last. Sometimes those deals made sense.
And since this is an NLDS game thread, I’ll just acknowledge that I was massively (and thankfully) wrong about the Padres’ chances against the Dodgers. Very happy for Padres fans that they slayed their own dragon like the Sox did in ‘04. Rooting for a Cleveland / San Diego World Series that will cause network executives’ heads to explode.
