Mookie Betts, 22 years old, was the center of “Mookie Madness”, one of the more exciting parts of an otherwise lackluster Red Sox season. Mookie has seen little trouble while sailing through the lower leagues into the Majors. Bett’s has exceptional hand-eye coordination, and had an OPS+ of 128 in the Majors last season. He’s one of only 30 players in MLB history to have an OPS+ of 125 or better as a 21 year old rookie or younger. Mookie will have an opportunity to earn a spot on the MLB roster this spring.
