Mookie Betts’ Power With Red Sox Helped By High School Water Boy Stint

Mookie Betts might have supplanted Bobby Boucher as the world’s most athletic water boy. Betts was a multisport athlete in high school, excelling at baseball, basketball and bowling before being drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the fifth round in 2011. Betts’ mother wouldn’t allow him to play football, though, which forced the Tennessee native to get creative about spending...

One Man’s Trash: Betting on Betts

This week's most added player was Mookie Betts (+60%). The rookie outfielder has been in the lineup every day since August 18th and has hit nearly .300 since that date with three home runs and four stolen bases. Going forward, Betts is a good option for a little bit of everything in standard 5x5 leagues. As the season winds down, lead-off hitters like Betts are even more valuable...

Boston Red Sox: Quick hits

At this point in the season the Boston Red Sox are not playing for wins and losses. That time has come and gone. Instead, they are playing to evaluate and showcase talent while gauging which players they believe can impact the 2015 team, and which players would be better served elsewhere. So, for all things 2015, let’s take a look at what’s been going on this week: Mookie Betts...

Mookie Betts’ Gold Chain Has ‘Super Powers,’ Gary Striewski Says (Video)

If you’ve watched a single Boston Red Sox game recently, chances are you’ve noticed Mookie Betts and his gold chain. The outfielder caught up with NESN’s Gary Striewski before Thursday’s game against the New York Yankees, and he told the story behind his jewelry Striewski was convinced the chain had “super powers,” but Betts wouldn’t admit to any mysticism. However...

Red Sox Haven’t Discussed Trying Versatile Mookie Betts At Third Base

Mookie Betts’ athleticism gives the Boston Red Sox options. The Red Sox’s outfield has become a crowded place in a short amount of time. And second base is out of the question for obvious reasons. Could the Red Sox thus consider trying Betts at third base, where Will Middlebrooks has failed to take the next step in his major league career? In theory, yes. But don’t count on...

Red Sox Notes: Mookie Betts Continues To Provide Offensive Spark

The Boston Red Sox won’t be involved in the playoff races in September, but exciting outfield prospect Mookie Betts is giving fans reasons to follow the team over the final month of the regular season. Betts was moved up to the leadoff spot for Monday’s series finale against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field, and he provided some much-needed offense for Boston. The 21-year...

An Appeal to Mookie Betts: Please Don’t Make Us Fall in Love With You

I think we can all admit that this Red Sox season has, for the most part, been only slightly more enjoyable than being hooked up to a self groin-kicking machine. We look for bright spots where we can find them, whether it’s Daniel Nava becoming a wildly indispensable part of our line-up or Craig Breslow successfully teaching his niece to parallel park. One such bright spot ...

Mookie Betts Promoted to Red Sox

When I wrote about Mookie Betts and his fantasy prospects for this year earlier this week, I said he would be up in July or August, but the Red Sox have surprised everyone by calling the 21-year-old 2B/OF prospect up to the show today.  He will be available for tonight's game, but it remains to be seen if he will be in the starting lineup right away or not, but it would not...
