Cody Bellinger v Dave Roberts – Our Youtube Video Brings the Verdict

The Dodgers are starting to look like a certain administration I know; the writers aren’t even finished covering one huge story when suddenly the next one breaks open.

I was busy making this Youtube video about the Cody Bellinger/ Dave Roberts situation, when the Corey Seager story broke the presses. Whew! What a whirlwind 24 hours.

Nevertheless, Corey is gone and Cody is still with us, so give a peek to the video as I break down the play and call it as I saw it. Was Cody or the skipper right?

I was born in the shadow of Dodger Stadium and immediately drenched in Dodger Blue. Chavez Ravine is my baseball cathedral, Vin Scully was the golden voice of summer all my life, and Tommy Lasorda remains the greatest Dodgers manager ever. My favorite things are coffee, beer, and the Dodgers beating the Giants. I also blog about my baseball card hobby at All Trade Bait, All the Time.

  1. Hey Oscar
    I didn’t know you were in the tank with Roberts. Roberts needed a scapegoat for his lousy managing and the kid was a perfect subject. Cody said that he did not want to make the 1st out of the inning so he probably figured he had a good chance of getting out and being down 4-0 he chose not to take a chance. If he had gotten out, YOU would have said he should not have attempted it. So would have Roberts. Roberts figured he would try and get a spark at the kid’s expense and that is what he did. Don’t give credit to a manager who does those types of things. Whether he could have made it to 3rd is subjective and whether YOU think he was flat out running hard is also subjective. Cody was right to stop at second and I refuse to say he was not hustling and he says he hustles on every play. You say he is lying and that he was not hustling. I fear you will always take the side of Dodger management. Not good.

    1. If anyone wants me, I’ll be over there, behind that tree until the flames die down.

      PS…anyone who thinks I always take the side of management must have missed my writing over the past two seasons.
