Ladies and gentlemen, your 2018 American League MVP, Mookie Betts. Okay, maybe it's a little too early to call for such an accolade to be thrust in Betts direction with the likes of Mike Trout and Jose Ramirez looming, but Mookie had yet another signature moment on Friday night at Fenway--the first walkoff home run of his career.
The Red Sox cannot lose. It's not in their DNA, especially at home. In what's turning out to be a historic season for Boston, Betts has played a massive role in creating arguably the most dangerous lineup in all of baseball (and this is a team in the same division as the Yankees). With Betts and JD Martinez as the anchors, the Sox can out-hit any team in the majors.

Not to mention, that Chris Sale guy is pretty good as well.
