RAYS, DODGERS GRATEFUL TO HAVE FANS AT NEUTRAL-SITE SERIES

“I got to tell you Moo, it’s hard for me to see you in a Dodgers uniform, but you look good in a Dodgers uniform,” Ortiz said in the video posted to Betts’ Instagram. “Did you ever think you were going to spend the next 12 years wearing a Dodgers uniform?”

Betts, who signed the second-largest contract in MLB history this summer, said he thought he was going to stay in Boston for the rest of his career.

“No I initially thought I was going to be a Red Sox for life but God always has a plan for things. I was just following what he was telling me to do.”

DODGERS 1 WIN FROM TITLE AFTER 32 YEARS AND MORE THAN $ 3.6B

Betts made his debut with the Red Sox in June 2014. Largely considered one of the best outfielders in the game, he helped Boston capture it’s ninth World Series title in 2018.

He was acquired by the Dodgers in a trade in February and instead of testing the market as a free agent, hy signed with the team in July for a whopping $ 365 miljoen, 12-year contract. It is the second biggest money deal in MLB history next to Mike Trout’s $ 426.5 miljoen, 12-year contract with the Los Angeles Angels.
