The Boston Red Sox are missing Los Angeles Dodgers midfielder Mookie Betts. They are aged 14-21 and drawn with the Baltimore Orioles for final place in the American League East. In February 2020, they traded Mookie Betts, David Price, and $48 million to the Los Angeles Dodgers for quarterback Alex Verdugo, potential client Jeter Downs, and prospect Connor Wong. We don’t have to tell you who won the trade. The Dodgers are currently ranked 22-12 – first place in the National League West.
In the first game of today’s doubles between the Dodgers and the Arizona Diamondbacks, Betts reminded everyone why he’s the former MVP of the American League. At the time of writing, he is a triple shy of the cycle. The midfielder won three-four with a singles, a doubles and a home run.
Red Sox fans are probably already bitter enough, but Dodgers fans just need to make sure how much they love Mookie Betts. Here are all the best Twitter reactions to Betts’ dominant performance this afternoon.
Los Angeles Dodgers fans troll Boston Red Sox for Mookie Betting deal
This Twitter user points to the fact that the Red Sox delivered Mookie Betts to Los Angeles because they didn’t want to pay him. It is true that Betts asked for a lot of money, but he won the right. He’s an MVP contender every year he plays in Boston.
“boston red sox chose to trade mookie bets instead of paying him” – @Catherine Tinker
This Los Angeles Dodgers fan thanked a higher power rather than Dodgers management for Mookie Betts.
“Thank god for Mookie Betts” @ irving
We all know that people who do their jobs well get paid a lot. Mookie Betts is very, very good at her job, as this user pointed out.
“this mookie bet guy seems to do his job” – @lily
It’s no secret that Mookie Betts is on fire. This user literally got it right by posting a short video captioned “Looking at Mookie Betts Directly.”
“Live Look at Mookie Betts” – @ Lindsay Adams
The index heads are always there to provide some interesting numbers-based commentary. This user pointed out that, after finishing his home game this afternoon, Mookie Betts is at #9 in the MLB fWAR rankings.
“After that game, Mookie Betts placed 9th in all baseball at fWAR” – @Josh Thomas
This Dodgers fan didn’t troll the Red Sox. Instead, they focused on the New York Yankees. This user thinks Mookie Betts is in a category of his own – higher than Aaron Judge. We don’t think the statistics will support that.
“I’ve also seen the internet try to put Mookie Betts in the same stratosphere as Aaron Judge” – @Frankies Two Loud
There is always a place to point out the obvious. This user pointed out that Betts’ double left him with just three more times to get to the cycle.
“Mookie Bet doubled, and now it’s triple the cycle.” – @ Dodger Blue
This Los Angeles Dodgers fan took that point and ran with it. We’re not sure if the baseball gods had a say in Betts’ production, but begging his cause with them couldn’t hurt.
“He’s a triple shame in the cycle. May the baseball gods give him another AB.” – @ DodgersTopShelf
Here’s a lesson for all other teams: Don’t trade the old MVPs.
