Many fans believe that Mookie Betts will be gone before next season. But what are the best three reasons why he should stay in a Boston Red Sox uniform?

The Boston Red Sox have built their team around Mookie Betts, but there has been plenty of talk about him being moved so that they can get back something in return for one of the best players in the game.

Betts won the 2018 MVP, as he led his team to another World Series title. The 2018 season cemented his legacy among some of the greatest to ever don a Red Sox uniform, but he is going to be a free agent after the 2020 season, which means his name will continue to be floated around as if he is going to be traded to a contender in return for a haul of prospects.

But the fact of the matter is the city of Boston doesn’t like it when teams rebuild, so I don’t see Chaim Bloom doing that in his first season as the chief baseball officer.

There are people that have said that Betts will be gone, especially because ownership has expressed the desire to get below the Luxury Tax.

If you look at all of the recent rumblings around the former AL MVP, you will see a lot of people talking like Betts is already out of town.

But there haven’t been any reports out there that have said that the Red Sox will be trading him, so why think otherwise?

So, let’s look at the best reasons why Mookie Betts should stay in Boston going into next season.
