The Stars Are Aligned, All Is Well: Mookie Is In Camp

(Peter Abraham/Bodton Globe)
If ever a single image could bring solace to Red Sox fans worldwide, it's seeing Mookie Betts entering camp with bats over his shoulder. All the off-season angst during The Winter Of Our Discontent just simply melts away. Fresh off winning his arbitration dispute with the Red Sox (deservedly so), Betts is positioned to have a "bounce-back" year—not that 2017 was all that shabby. In fact, Mookie led the team in virtually every offensive category—and delivered Gold Glove-level defense in right field. Anyway, relax, take a deep breath and ponder this image every time you consider our team's otherwise bleak situation. Thanks, Mookie!
