Dodgers podcast: Cody Bellinger wins MVP, where does he rank in 2010s? (True Blue LA)

Our final Cody Bellinger pace update of 2019 recounts the Dodgers versatile outfielder and first baseman extraordinaire, the first position player to win MVP for the franchise in 31 years.

We ponder where Bellinger’s season ranks in Dodgers history, plus take a look at his 2019, including separating his scorching start and chasing .400 from the bulk of his year. It’s also salary arbitration time for Bellinger, which puts him in some select recent company thanks to his MVP triumph.

Bellinger has only been in the majors for three seasons, but where does he rank among Dodgers in the now-complete 2010s?

Also this week: Hyun-jin Ryu finished second in Cy Young voting that wasn’t close at all, plus Kristopher Negrón retired, and there was the whole Astros sign stealing fiasco from 2017.
