What are you talking about?
The prospect the Red Sox balked at for medical reasons came from the Twins.
Of course. However, it doesn't take five days for a Red Sox doctor to read the MRI results of a MLB pitcher. Boston let it be known this guy aint going to cut it, and what's really going on there is this was Chaim Bloom talking to Andrew Friedman (by way of the Twins' GM, Thad Levine).
The real deal here was Betts and Price for acceptable parts coming back. The Twins were cover for Friedman to not have to spend from at or near the top of the deck of Dodgers' prospects.
That's why it took so long. And Friedman blinked.
