Mookie Betts Thanks Red Sox Nation


“It’s Showtime”

Mookie Betts took to social media this morning and thanked Boston, his teammates and Red Sox Nation for nine years with the Red Sox organization.  In the video, Betts thanks Boston for welcoming him like family and acknowledges the World Series banner that’ll “hang forever”.

In the video, Betts says “thank you” but he does not say goodbye.  “The way you welcomed me in, like family.  The bonds that will last a lifetime, and the banner that will hang forever,” he says, as clips of him dancing in the outfield and celebrating the 2018 World Series are in the video.

The video comes almost a week after the trade that sent Betts and Price to Los Angeles is still being criticized by Red Sox fans here in New England.

His video will tug at the hearts of Red Sox fans but also leave hope for the future.  Could this mean he will be back next offseason?


Xander Bogaerts isn’t ruling that possibility out.  “Hey, you know … probably, maybe in a year,” Bogaerts said, to MassLive.  “We’ll see how that goes. He knows what he means to us and we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.”

It still doesn’t look or feel right to see Betts wearing a Dodgers uniform.  The speculation will run rampant all season long as the media and fans alike try and figure out what Betts will do next offseason.  The Dodgers are going to try everything they can to keep Betts beyond this season.

Betts deserves the right to test free agency and see what he will command on the open market.  If he stays in Los Angeles beyond 2020 then we should start judging the Betts trade.  But today’s video of him saying thank you could show us that he really liked Boston and is open to returning.  If you say goodbye, you move on and begin life without Boston.

His last words in the video, “Los Angeles, it’s showtime.”  Enjoy your time with Betts this season Dodgers fans, you have the team to finally win the World Series.  It’s time to stop barking about Altuve and the Astros and play some baseball.

See you next year Mookie.
