Red Sox, President & CEO had this to say, when asked if he would try and resign the 2018 AL MVP, and the 2020 free agent for a long term contract. Mookie went onto say “I love Boston, love my teammates, love the fans and all those types of things, so we’ll just continue to see what happens”. Kennedy went onto say “We’ve made it crystal clear that we want him a part of the Red Sox organization long term. We were chatting last night, I don’t know why a player would ever want to play anywhere else other than Boston. You look around at the fan support, you look at the ownership group, the commitment to winning. We’re now approaching a 20 year run of an era in Boston sports unlike any other in the history of professional sports. This is where you want to be”.
