One thing is obvious too me, you can tell who has either owned, or followed Mookie his whole career, and the ones who haven't.

Very true.

I think it becomes pretty obvious too who is a fan of the sport vs those who just happen to be playing fantasy baseball.

Spot on...this guy is worthless as a 1st rounder and does nothing for days until one big game then disappears for days again. Never own him again in H2H

Just curious as what you guys think his stats should be at this point in the season?

 

Because he's currently on pace for 27/23 batting .290 with a 16/13 BB/K rate...?

 

Is that not 1st round material or am I missing something?

He's one of the best hitters in baseball.  5 tool player and doesn't strike out.  Are people also complaining about Mike Trout?  Yeesh

Whom is a troll that whines about players and has literally never added anything of value to the boards. Feel free to ignore.

The Good Doctor, in his defense, has elevated his thing to an art form.  Don't judge too harshly.

Only one game you say?

 

His stat line last week was 8/3/11 with a SB and a .375 average. Go play with a grizzly bear or something.

The only people who don't like Mookie Betts are internet trolls and Jeff Sessions.

 

Jeff Sessions liked him before he found out he smoked pot once with the KKK.

Liked him when he heard he was well-spoken and good at bowling. Disliked when he saw a photo.

No doubt he isn't EXACTLY what we signed up for, but there is like 70% of the season left. And a ~20/~25 pace is pedestrian? This really looks to be a case of not understanding what one standard deviation looks like.

Posts this like are beyond dumb.

 

He's in a slump and still has 70% of the season left.. and he's still on pace for 96 runs, 23 homers, 99 RBI and 26 steals.. "kind of sucks" and "totally pedestrian" are just idiotic statements.

The peripherals actually look pretty good--better, in fact.

 

Walks up

Strikeouts down

Batted-ball profile slightly improved

 

Still swiping bags

 

Betts really is just missing a couple of HRs -- which will come -- and some BABIP

 

I'd be buying all day--not "buying low"--but just buying buying buying

 

There's just the small little problem that I lack the resources to acquire Betts lol

Is there anybody really complaining about Betts 5 category production up to this point? 

 

30/8/30/8/.275 before the end of the 2nd month of the season ... um ... where do i sign up?

He's been a mild disappointment due to the batting average. Barely OPSing over .800 right now which is certainly disappointing for a guy who finished 2nd in the MVP voting last year and was the #2 overall pick in a lot of drafts. I'm not concerned, just talking about his performance to date. He went up against some tomato cans this weekend and did nothing so he's definitely a bit out of sorts at the plate right now.
