We knew Cody Bellinger was good when we first saw him play in Dodger’s major league spring training camp a few years ago. Most of us however had no idea he would blossom into the superstar that he has become. Solid regular? Certainly. All-star, surely, but the best player in baseball? I don’t think any of us saw this coming. But some scouts did see this coming. Tony Luftman states on the Jim Rome show that scouts told him that they thought Bellinger was the most complete player since Bo Jackson. Luftman is an NHL analyst and television personality. Bellinger’s incredible talent was so big that it leaked over into sectors outside of baseball. Even an NHL analyst heard that Belli was the bomb.
Well here we are in 2019 and Bellinger is threatening to not only win the National League MVP, but also the triple crown. He’s in the top two or three in just about every offensive category this season. Check out the video clip below from the Jim Rome show where Luftman and Rome discuss Bellinger’s massive talents.
