    You can hate the Dodgers all you want but you can't deny the fact that they have a stud in Cody Bellinger. He embracing his mistakes and learns from them in the best way. He doesn't only aim for the homeruns he also aims for the small ball too and he hustles (which is something a certain player should learn how to do) to first base on every ball even the ball that definitely should be an out. On defense he's a beast but never brags about it he seems very humble about it so when he shows his canon of an arm or his speed in the outfield, it's shocking. He's a guy that regardless of his bad games, he's one of the best players in baseball right now

      Cody 100 percent. Vlad Jr. does not have enough games. Cody's rookie season was historical and if you compare number of games and offense Cody's rookie year vs this current season of Jr. so far Cody has the lead by a landslide. You have wait a little more

    Cody Bellinger is a special talent. He's 23 years old. As a 21 year old rookie, he hit 39 home runs
    This is not an accident. This is him figuring it out, and maturing as a hitter.

    So glad he went 0-4 today. This stupid.400 thing has gotten in his head. I understand being short when you need to but he has been slapping at everything the last few weeks.

      Eric Lee he’s not gonna hit a home run every single time and his batting average isn’t gonna go up if he’s only hitting home runs and he is still leading mlb in batting average and he’s second in home runs so shut up cause he’s doing great

      Eric Lee shut up you shouldn’t be talking about baseball if you don’t understand it don’t you know all baseball players have slumps it’s June 20 and he’s still doing great so shut up because he is gonna have a slump every once in a while 🤦🏻‍♀️😒

    • Horan's TØP
      Horan's TØP 25 days ago

      @Travis Rowe true, but cody is hitting in every way possible it's not just the homers. Cody is getting base hits and hustling to 1st base on balls that should be an out but he hauls ass so that it turns into an infield single. He seems embrace his mistakes and learn from them more this year

      Top Dogg To imply that All Judge does is hit home runs is rediclous. His speed and defence are incredibly underated
