Dodgers: Cody Bellinger has a drink of ‘humility’ being the worst hitter on the team

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.

I started as a rookie on Al Bat in early 2018 and I am going into my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy.

I lived in Australia for a while; i survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
