SI Lists Mookie Betts As 6th Best Player In All Of MLB

Furthering our contention that Red Sox ownership needs to sign Mookie Betts long-term is the designation by Sports Illustrated of the Boston right-fielder as the sixth-best player in all of baseball. Betts is the only Red Sox player to make the Top Ten—in fact, the next Boston player is Chris Sale, who comes in at #20 overall. The only other Carmine Hosers to appear in SI's Top 100 ranking are: Craig Kimbrel (#63), Jackie Bradley, Jr. (#74) and David Price (#94). If Dave Dombrowski gets off his keister and signs J.D. Martinez—that would give us the #61 player as well. Do it, 'Double D'!
