This season has been full of highs and lows for not only the Dodgers but one of their star athletes, Mookie Betts. On Tuesday, during a press conference, Betts admitted that he has not been playing as well as he would like.
Mookie Betts is not a huge fan of his 2021 season so far…
"Bad. This would be bad. I'm trying to to turn it around and get this rolling." #Dodgers

So far this season, Betts is at a .247 batting average, alongside 10 home runs. The home run leader currently has 31 right now, to put this into perspective. He also has an OPS of .812, which is above average.
He spoke about how it felt to be chosen for the All-Star game when asked by David Vassegh of SportsNetLA.
I was surprised, honestly, haven’t played that great, so definitely surprised, but obviously grateful.
Betts is very thankful that he is respected to the point where he is still wanted as a member of the NL All-Star team, but he also feels he needs to prove himself and fans agree. Fans are skeptical about him being voted in for the All-Star game, especially considering they are used to seeing the two-time silver slugger in action. 2018 Mookie Betts is going to have to come out for fans to believe he is worthy for the All-Star game.
Overall, Betts is focused on getting better as the season continues and plans on getting the Dodgers more wins.
