Three big questions that needed answering have now been, apparently, solved in the MLB off season. The first name that many were curious about was Mookie Betts, who could have ended up walking away from the Boston Red Sox. However, that won’t happen, at least for now, as he got an arbitration record $27 million deal for one season.
Kris Bryant also will be sticking around on his current team, for now at least, the Chicago Cubs after he agreed to take an $18.6 million deal of his own. Lastly, perhaps the biggest name out there right now, Cody Bellinger, the National League MVP last season, has also made history. The $11.5 million he has acquired is the most for a first-year arbitration eligible player. It’s 19 times, in fact, larger than the paltry $605K he made last year, which is honestly a crime to read. For Dodgers, like the Cubs and Red Sox, they will be glad they don’t have to head to court at least over these cases and can now concentrate on other matters.
