Mookie Betts has been phenomenal this season atop the Boston Red Sox’s order. In fact, he actually might be too good for the leadoff spot.
The 23-year-old outfielder, who tallied two more hits in Saturday’s 3-0 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers, is batting .310 on the year and putting up incredible power numbers — his 23 home runs and 73 RBIs in 106 games trail only David Ortiz for the most on the club.
But Betts’ power surge begs the question of whether he should move into the second, third or fourth spot in the lineup so Boston can capitalize on his big bat. Watch Betts give his own take on the matter in the “Red Sox Final” video above.
