Great game, but his performance today sealed the sox division title meaning he likely doesnt play tommorow. That could be a killer with 3 days left for those fighting for their playoff lives

I honestly hope you're right because I'm playing against him for the championship. But I think he wants to play to get that 20th SB and strengthen his MVP case.

He might play 3 more games the rest of the year JMO

 

As long as one of those 3 games is tommorow then im cool with it....

chances he plays tomorrow night? last day of the championship and I could really use him. Even worse, it's the night game and I have no one else to pivot too if he does get benched.

Im in the same boat. I'd say 50/50 chance he plays.

He's one good final week away from a 10.0 fWAR season. His fWAR right now is 9.7. The last Red Sox player with a 10.0 fWAR season was Yastrzemski in 1967...

125 Runs scored in 133 games. That's insane.

 

Leading the Majors in AVG, Runs, XBH and fWAR despite playing in 133 games. One SB away from a 30/30 season.

 

Yea, looks like he really wants that MVP!

He is one steal short of 30 so guess what is on Mookie's To Do List these last few days.  Nothing like becoming a 30/30 man to seal the deal for MVP.  Unfortunately the other guy and not me has him during this playoff week, sigh.  But as a Sox fan, go get 'em!  Just maybe you could rest the last few days and let my Merrifield help me catch up in that Steals cat, okay Mookie?

Pretty amazing, but not insane.      Just think about Gehrig  167 in 155 games and Ruth 177 runs in 152 games (7 seasons with more than 1 run per), I think more runs are scored now than then.      Ted Williams averaged that his first 9 seasons.

Im curious if Betts would be even better if he wasnt the lead-off man. He would surely have more than 80  RBIs if he was batting 2nd, 3rd or 4th.

 

For a guy with 83 XBHs, 80 seems really low.

Yeah, he would lose some runs but i think the net RBI addition he would get would make it worth it. JD batting 4th all year has 106 runs on the year himself. 

 

I think batting Betts 2nd or 3rd would be ideal
