Blake Snell rescinds sarcastic thank you to Red Sox for Mookie Betts trade.
Blake Snell can’t decide how he feels about the Mookie Betts trade, even now. Back when Betts was originally traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers he thanked the Red Sox for sending him to the National League West and out of direct competition.
Now that Snell is pitching for the San Diego Padres, he’s taking back that gratitude.
It’s all in good fun obviously.
Snell will have to face Betts a lot in 2021
Snell is now going to pitch against Betts more often since they are both in the National League West which would send anyone into a panic. We get it, Betts is that good.
Snell and Betts will face off in 2021, first in Spring Training which is kicking off in just a few days. They will then have to play for real next season as the Dodgers looks to defend their World Series title, a title that many thought the Padres might have captured in 2020.
