Mookie Betts has been having one hell of a season.

Betts' recent production has somehow been even better than his season totals. The 25-year-old has managed to get on base in 34 of his last 68 plate appearances, which gives him an insane .500 OBP over that stretch of time.
To top it all off, Betts also has a nine-game hitting streak and a 15-game on-base streak.
Betts has been a big reason why the Boston Red Sox find themselves with the best record in all of baseball, and it's evident that his presence in the lineup drastically improves Boston's chances of winning any game they play.
