Cody Bellinger was the first player to hit a home run for the Dodgers this season but that was taken away thanks to an old, dumb MLB rule. We break down the wild and wacky play that cost Belli his first home run of the season and discuss if the rule should be changed. Plus, Dave Roberts reacts to the play.
Next, we discuss Doc’s decision to pinch hit Matt Beaty in place of Zack McKinstry in the middle of a 9th inning rally. Ultimately, the cold Beaty struck out on 3 pitches and the Dodgers lost 8-5 on opening day. Plus, how will Roberts manage now that the National League rules — no universal DH — have returned for 2021.
Finally, we look at a called strike three against Edwin Rios that was proven to be the worst called strike call of the day.
