Betts is starting at second base tonight...

SDS

for the first time in six years. Therefore he will be 2B eligible for at least the next five years in The Show.

How much you wanna bet Dave Roberts did it for that very purpose?

For the record he played second in HS and all growing up in organized play, the Red Sox just moved him because he's more valuable. Second is natural to him.

They moved him to the OF for value purposes?!?

Does. Not. Compute.

SDS

The reason hes playing there is just incase they have to bring in an outfielder as a pinch hitter he can slide in. Just getting him some reps.

SDS

If in real life, teams have the option to play Mookie effectively at 2B, so should we. No reason he shouldn’t have 2B secondary

If you're argueing top tier defense is more valueable at second than OF idk what to tell you. There was also this guy named Dustin Pedroia blocking him.
