If a baseball comes in Mookie Betts’ direction — or within a mile radius — he will catch it. Unfortunately for Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley, he had to find out the hard way Monday night at Fenway Park.
Brantley scorched a gap-shot line drive in the top of the fifth inning, but Betts tracked it down and made an insane diving catch.

Well, that was unbelievable — for a normal human being. These miraculous grabs have become everyday news for the Boston Red Sox outfielder.
The only thing left for Betts is to develop his own Dikembe Mutombo-style celebration after he robs opposing hitters because, well, that would be awesome.
No, no, no. Not today, Michael Brantley.
