    He’s doing all this despite not hitting well against lefties. If he figures that out, dude is gonna make a big case for MVP this year

    I grew up a huge fan of Eric Davis and Daryl Strawberry as a little kid.
    Even when they were washed up I was excited to see them in Dodger blue.
    Probably why I liked Mondesi and Puig too.
    Mookie is smaller than these guys but just as exciting.
    And yeah, racist.
    But I always wanted to see an exciting black superstar OF on the Dodgers.
    And Mookie is like our version of the Barry Bonds story.
    But Mookie is the anti-Bonds.

    Which was my point after the posts about how Mookie is better than we even hoped for.
    Like I hoped to see a Dodgers OF with 5 tools that could do it all and be a top level superstar.
    Kemp was as close as we got to fulfilling that promise but his 5 tools were not the most sharp ones in the shed.
    Mookie is like hoping for a marvel girl and getting a wonder woman.

    So do Tommy Davis and Maury Wills.

    So do half of Dave Roberts and Russell Martin.

    Looking at him this weekend, his sharpest tools are his knife and fork.

    The first two played before Hector was a pup.
    Martin is a pudgy catcher and Roberts died and was replaced by a replicant prototype long ago that suffers from corrupted data analysis in his prime directive.

    I bet everybody has been having a good laugh at the expense of the RedSox fans who said Mookie wasn't gonna hit for any power.

    fwiw...
    • Trading the 29-year-old Clevinger would epitomize risk. He's an elite starter with at least two more years of team control -- three if the team keeps him on option for 20 or more days. Cleveland also desperately needs a quality outfielder. Over 334 plate appearances this season, its outfielders are hitting a collective .166/.273/.249. That is pitcher-quality offense among a group of position players.

    Just something fun to watch, Mookie Betts has 998 career hits, so in the next game or two he should hit the 1,000 hit milestone.

    I don't think the Dodgers would be able to offer something that significantly helps Cleveland this season, which means the price would be high with no urgency to make a trade with us. I can't envision a Clevinger trade without May or Lux involved.
