Completing the two-week saga of the trade of the offseason, the Los Angeles Dodgers officially introduced Mookie Betts and David Price at a press conference in the Dodger Stadium outfield Wednesday afternoon.
The two former Red Sox were joined by Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman and manager Dave Roberts for pictures and to take questions from the media.
Both players were asked their fondest memories with the Red Sox. Price cited the 2018 World Series, while Betts described his whole experience in Boston as special, something that should be seen as encouraging for those who hope to see him return as a free agent in 2021.
Betts was asked about a potential contract extension with the Dodgers, but said he is “still trying to find a house. I’m not really thinking about that. I’m just focused on staying with 2020 and going from there.”
Betts and Price were traded to the Dodgers in a deal finalized over the weekend that saw the Red Sox get Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs, and Connor Wong in return. As of now, there are no plans for the Red Sox to hold a press conference to introduce any or all of the trio to the Boston media.
