FenwayNation POLL: Seven In Ten Now Favor A Trade of Mookie Betts

In what seems like a shocking result, seven in ten FenwayNation readers now support the Red Sox trading away Mookie Betts for four players from the San Diego Padres. Clearly, much of this sentiment is the result of the perception (likely true) that Mookie does not want to stay in Boston—and would prefer testing the free-agent waters after the 2020 season. So, as the chart shows, 70% approve of the hypothetical deal—sending a closer, OF, 1B and pitcher to Boston this off-season. Three in ten (30%) disapprove of the proposed deal.
