Channeled his inner MVP last night.

There's something to the argument that the All-Star Game should not be based solely on 3 months of play, it should be based upon something like the Marcel system's weighted average with the last 162 games worth 3x, the next 162 games 2x, and then the next 162 games 1x.  That way, players who won last year's MVP are not penalized for a slow start.  They are some of the biggest stars in the game.

It also goes to Mel Allen's pronunciation of the name of the game.  It's not the All-Star Game as it's now said, made up of the noun "All-Stars."  The noun is "Star."  The game is played among only Stars.  Every player is a Star.  They are all Stars.

Justification for making the All-Star team: bad BABIP luck?

The age of advanced metrics.

I'm not serious -- I really don't know why he was selected -- but for the record, halfway through the season:

BB% 16

SO% 15

BABIP .281

G/L/F 37/18/45

$4x4 14

$5x5 14

Increase in walks...….Possibly weaker pitchers avoiding the strike zone with him?

With another ofer last night, he's now batting .260.

In the lead-off spot, so you could at least run, Mookie, when you get on.

Joins the club.

A little late, don't you think, Mookie?

And the Red Sox have won two of them.

Mookie Betts (OF) BOS - Apr. 5

Betts went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, a walk and two runs scored Friday against Arizona.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Betts launched a two-run homer in the eighth inning, but the Diamondbacks had already pulled out to a big lead by that point. The reigning American League MVP is off to a solid start at the dish in 2019 and is batting .289 with two long balls, five RBI and nine runs scored over nine games.

Peter expected Mookie's batting average to go up and it did. This year he expects it to go down and it will.

Regression is always wise and, more often than not, too conservative.

Even Mookie has avoided arbitration, signing for an even $20 million.

My New Year's resolution didn't last very long, did it?

I'm doing better about not drinking wine this month.
