Dodgers slugging first baseman and utility man Max Muncy joined the Jim Rome show today and was asked about what it’s like to be playing alongside Cody Bellinger right now.
He’s one of those ‘once in a generation’ talents — someone that’s pretty special. He has all the tools to be an absolute superstar. It really fun to watch, you just want to sit back and enjoy the ride.
Interview with Jim Rome
Bellinger is on a tear, as you’ve probably seen and heard in the news and on social media. The 23-year-old outfielder is leading baseball in essentially every major offensive category and shows very few signs of a serious slowdown.
He is currently slashing .382/.469/.770 and continues to crush home runs like this one, his 20th of the season.

Muncy is no slouch himself though. In the month of May, He has really turned it on, hitting five home runs to go along with a very respectable .286/.381/.512 slash line. He did have a tough start to the year though, hitting just .218 through the team’s first 28 games. That set him back a bit and has been the main reason his overall stat line is a little lower than expected.
Look for big things for this pair of lefty mashers in Los Angeles.
