Dodgers: Gavin Lux Speaks on Cody Bellinger as a Teammate

Gavin Lux and Cody Bellinger will play together for years to come.

Gavin Lux leads off third base at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers are quietly in the midst of a youth movement with the team transitioning from being anchored by veterans Clayton Kershaw, Kenley Jansen, and Justin Turner to a new youthful core of Cody Bellinger, Walker Buehler, and more.

Gavin Lux is amongst the group of talented 2019 rookies like Will Smith, Tony Gonsolin, Dustin May, and Alex Verdugo who look to pick up where the veterans will leave off. They are the ones who will look to continue the successes of the 2010s Dodgers into the 2020s.

The second baseman of the future for the Dodgers, Gavin Lux, talked about what it is like to have Cody Bellinger as a teammate as they create camaraderie for the future:

Lux on Bellinger’s Ability

Cody Bellinger is a good role model for Gavin Lux going forward and it seems Lux already looks up to Bellinger simply based off of his talent alone.

“It is so much fun. On both sides of the ball..he’ll save a run by hosing a guy at third or making a diving play. Next inning comes around he hits a 450 foot home run.”

Lux on Bellinger Winning MVP

Gavin Lux gave his teammate his vote for the NL Most Valuable Player Award and gave him even more credit:

“There’s nothing on the field that he can’t do. He can do everything on the baseball field and he’s a great dude and great teammate and I was so happy that he won the MVP. He definitely deserved it.”

Overall

Get used to seeing Lux and Bellinger in the same breath as the two remain poised to spearhead the Dodgers’ future and present.

  1. They’ll be choking in October together for years to come along with their buddy Seager and any other prospect that comes out of this cursed organization

    • NODH: You remind me of the Quaid character in “Major League 2”. If you love the Dodgers, then pull for them, if you don’t love them, pull for the Giants. There is no gray area. I’m sure you love the Dodgers, so do I. I’ve been a Dodger fan since 1951 and cried like a baby when Bobby Thompson hit the home run that broke my heart, but I didn’t bad mouth the Dodgers. I kept pulling for them and they came through in 1955. All through the years they have been my team and I’ve never wavered. Sure, even at the ripe old age of 80 I still pull as hard as I did when I was a kid and I would love to see them win every game, but I know they can’t so I just take what they give me and I can tell you, what they give is a whole lot better than most. So let’s touch hands in the circle and shout “Go Dodgers” and good things will happen!

      • Don, one thing we can take note of in that 1951 playoff game with the Giants was that like today’s Astros, they cheated their way to that NL pennant. But many have said that ‘it’s only cheating if you get caught’.

  2. It is easy to love the Dodgers, for to do so suggests one’s prior experiences as a Dodger fan. For some of us, we have withstood the test of time as it relates to being a loving Dodger fan. We have no untention of faltering from any current intentions to find another team to, as Mr, Mills so suggests, love. But, this does not preempt my desire to suggest, either in passing or with strict scrutiny, to be assumed to a status of exemption when voicing or writing to the fullest extent of my current concerns or, more robustly, total disatisfaction in any levels of disapproval relative to any characteristic of the Dodgers performance, i.e., managerial, general management, and player performance of each and every player. That will always be my inherant option.
