As Cody Bellinger has struggled his way through the 2021 season, calls have come in far and wide as to what’s going wrong with the Dodger centerfielder. His swing is too long, his stance is too tall… his hair is too long!
Well, he fixed one of those things.
Yesterday during the TV broadcast, a cleaned up Bopper was spotted as the Dodgers lined up to celebrate a 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks…

As the season has trudged along and Cody’s struggles compounded, the calls for — more specifically the emails for — him to cut his hair have come with regularity. DN alone for some reason receiving at times 3-4 messages daily about a haircut being the cure to Belli’s woes.
While he’s still on the injured list as he recovers from a fractured rib on his left side, you have to wonder if he’s working on bringing back all of the hits that worked for him during his magical MVP season in 2019. Do we start hearing Hotel California by The Eagles blaring at Dodger Stadium again? Will we again see the return of the classic upright stance after Cody introduced a newer, more simplified approach at the plate before Gavin Lux ran into him.
League in trouble now
