Red Sox rookie Mookie Betts is taking the world by storm.

In the top of the first inning on Monday, he robbed Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper of a homer with a ridiculous catch.

Then in the bottom of the first, Betts stole second and third base on the same play thanks to Washington shifting on David Ortiz and despite a pretty good throw from Jose Lobaton. Betts' two steals were challenged, and both calls were upheld.

I don’t think the Red Sox are going to be trading Betts any time soon. They’ve got a budding superstar on their hands.
