Mookie has been on a steady climb up the ranks for baseballs best player and this year he may have just reached the pinnacle. The Mookie Monstah as I’ve crowned him is dominating every aspect of the game. He is leading baseball in avg, slugging, ops, 2nd in obp, runs, and is close to top 10 in stolen bases.
Last night was the perfect example of why Mookie is as unstoppable as anyone we’ve seen. After falling down 1-2 in count that is where is excellance unveiled itself. When Justin Smoak looked like a 50 year old dad stumbling over his kids toys in the middle of night and dropped the 3rd out you knew something special may happen.
