If a blockbuster trade involving Red Sox star outfielder Mookie Betts is to be made, the Twins won’t be a part of it.
According to two sources with knowledge of talks, the Twins no longer expect to work out their end of a proposed three-way deal involving the Red Sox and Dodgers, a deal in which the Twins were to receive righthander Kenta Maeda from the Dodgers while sending righthanded flamethrower Brusdar Graterol to the Red Sox.

We’ll see what happens. But the deal could be off and it should be off. The Dodgers and Red Sox are supposedly working out a deal but maybe not the Red Sox will come to their senses and pull out completely and do the right thing and keep Mookie a Red Sox for life.
