The Los Angeles Dodgers are year after year, one of the candidate teamsto be champions of the World Series, also having great luminaries on their roster, with players Future Hall of Famers like Clayton Kershaw, Albert Pujols and Max Scherzer, as well as how to calibrates MVPs and All-Stars like Mookie Betts, Justin Turner, Corey Seager and Cody Bellinger, just to mention a few.
However, of all of them the one who is playing the worst is 2019 MVP Cody Bellinger, who just hits .174 / .258 / .336 with 9 homers, -0.9 WAR and an OPS + of just 59, undoubtedly being the worst of his career so far. However, Belli is aware of this and as he told The Athletic’s Fabian Ardaya, it has been a humbling drink for him.
I see the guys in front of me and they are obviously going to hit on top of me. They’re on, they all are. Obviously it’s a great humble drink for me, but that’s okay, everyone’s path is always going to be different. I know what I am capable of and I know that I can return in a big way.
The truth is that although he keeps trying, just this 2021 has been hard for Bellinger, who is currently in a slump of 13 turns without an unstoppable in the last games.
