Can We Count Mookie Betts’ MVP Win As a Championship for Nashville?
Last week, Mookie Betts won the AL MVP. The honors come just a month after the Boston Red Sox won the World Series. Betts hit for .346 in 2018, with 80 RBI and 32 home runs. I am told these are good baseball statistics. I also understand that winning the World Series is indeed good.
God, I’m not a baseball guy. It’s going to be hard for me to power through this post. How about I just quit faking this bullshit and cut to the chase?
Should this AL MVP count as a championship for Nashville?
I mean, Nashville still hasn’t won a *professional* championship – MLB is professional, right? I think if you look at a World Series win alone, nah. If you look at the MVP win alone, nah. But, the fact that Betts got both? That, in my opinion, negates the fact that the Red Sox don’t actually play in Nashville. You get both and whatever city you’re from automatically gets a title.
The Preds should definitely hang a banner for this.
But, I’m starving for a title, y’all. I’ve been in Nashville my whole life, which is 32 years, and I’ve never been able to call myself a champion except for in backyard wrestling. And, yes – we all know that’s how it works. If a team in your city wins a championship, you get to claim it. Those are just the rules. So, if the Titans win a Super Bowl or the Preds win a Stanley Cup, I will get to celebrate the win as if I actually won the games myself. That’s just how it works.
I’m looking at everything as a potential championship for Nashville. Rusev getting the WWE Championship would’ve been one, but for now, we’re just going to have to keep holding on to that Vanderbilt baseball National Championship and Jeff Jarrett winning the WCW Championship.
This is an important question to ask, y’all. You should know we only do real journalism and editorials on this website.
Also, we need better baseball coverage on the site. One article in the last two months and it’s not even actually about baseball.
