We all knew Mookie Betts was good. But did we know he was this good?
Through 48 games (not quite a third of the season), Betts is batting .359, with 17 HR, 37 RBI, and an earth shattering OPS of 1.187.
Extrapolate those numbers over a full season, and Mookie is on pace to put up a tremendous season–if he continues even close to this pace, he could be looking at a 50 HR, 120 RBI type season. Oh, and we don’t even care if he participates in the home run derby.
