The Boston Red Sox are missing Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts right now. They’re 14-21 and are tied with the Baltimore Orioles for last place in the American League East division. In February 2020, they traded Mookie Betts, David Price, and $48 million to the Los Angeles Dodgers for outfielder Alex Verdugo, infield prospect Jeter Downs, and catching prospect Connor Wong. We don’t need to tell you who won that trade. The Dodgers are currently 22-12 — first place in the National League West division.
In the first game of today’s doubleheader between the Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks, Betts reminded everyone why he’s a former American League MVP. At the time of writing, he’s a triple shy of the cycle. The outfielder has gone three-for-four with a single, a double, and a home run.
Red Sox fans are probably feeling bitter enough, but Dodgers fans just needed to make sure they know how much they love Mookie Betts. Here are all the best Twitter reactions to Betts’ dominant performance this afternoon.
