Mookie Betts Is Kinda Good at this Outfield Thing

Last night’s Red Sox win was everything we needed exactly when we needed it. A starter — in this case, Rick Porcello — actually going seven strong innings and giving up just two hits. Another home run from Hanley Ramirez, who now has 10 in April and is on pace for roughly 2,183 this season (or possibly less; I’m not strong with math). A brief return to 2013 postseason form...

That’s Betts solving a Rubik’s Cube in less than two minutes...

Science says Mookie Betts is a superhero

Scott LevesqueTwitter: @SomeComicReliefMookie Betts was not bit by a radioactive spider. He's not from a distant galaxy where the planet was destroyed due to overuse of its natural resources. No, Betts is the best kind of superhero. He's the people's superhero.Seemingly unassuming, Mookie flashes his superpowers when the Red Sox (and their fans) need him the most. Don't believe...

Mookie Betts has already become must-see television

Just over a week into the season, we’ve already seen plenty of intriguing storylines and overbearing narratives throughout Major League Baseball. However, there’s been a notable absence of the whole “baseball is dying” talk. Perhaps it’s because it’s still early in the season. Or that the pace of play changes are doing their job. Or that there are simply too many other...

Mookie Betts Being More Aggressive For Red Sox: ‘Can’t Walk To Fenway’
