In some ways, Mookie Betts could be even better in 2019

In some ways, Mookie Betts could be even better in 2019

Mookie Betts only played 136 games during his MVP season in 2018. If he doesn’t miss any time in 2019, what could he accomplish? Like most people who closely follow the New England sports teams, I am intrigued by Mookie Betts. With the exception of David Ortiz (in my opinion, the greatest Red Sox player of all time because he helped end The Curse and delivered THREE (3!) World Series championships), Mookie is arguably the most exciting Sox player I’ve had the pleasure of watching. Ever since he joined the big club in 2014, every season has been special. Clearly, no season was more...

Not that there’s any reason to believe he can’t handle it There was a lot of people on or around the Red Sox that excelled with their performance in 2018. A team doesn’t do what they do, winning 108 games and rolling through a historically great postseason field, without greatness from all levels of the organization. So many people deserved to be the one remembered most for this team. Mookie Betts won the MVP. J.D. Martinez changed the lineup. Chris Sale, when healthy, pitched as well as he ever has in his Hall of Fame-caliber career. Dave Dombrowski put together a super roster....

Red Sox avoid to arbitration with all eligible players

Red Sox avoid to arbitration with all eligible players

That includes the likes of Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts, among others. Friday was the deadline for teams and players to exchange figures ahead of potential arbitration hearings. Over the last few years, more and more teams have used this deadline as the final chance to negotiate a deal before a hearing, opting to utilize the “file-and-trial” strategy. This trend has made Friday’s deadline all the more important, particularly for the Red Sox with so many high-profile players eligible for arbitration. Before Friday rolled around, the Red Sox had agreed to deals with three of their...
