Can Mookie Betts Be Another Roberto Alomar?
comes to the conclusion that Betts could end to be either a Roberto Alomar/Dustin Pedroia type or (perhaps more likely) a player like Brett Gardner. Cameron cites the already well-honed plate discipline skills of Betts—developed at the tender age of 21. He then postulates that this skill might put Betts on the higher end of the spectrum—unlike Coco Crisp, another similar player whose plate discipline developed later in his career. All in all, if Betts can deliver a career along the lines of Alomar, Pedroia, Crisp or Gardner, we'd be very pleased.
