Red Sox want Betts for ‘whole baseball career’

BOSTON — Whether the Red Sox can keep Mookie Betts from testing free agency will be a hot topic until, well, he either hits free agency or agrees to a deal.

At the least, ownership has a continued, stated interest in locking him up long term, as would be expected with the American League MVP.

“He’s one of the great players of our generation,” Tom Werner said Friday at Winter Weekend. “Obviously, if we have conversations, they will be private, but it’s our hope that he’ll be a Red Sox player for his whole baseball career.”
