Dodgers: Mookie Betts Talks Cody Bellinger, Ping Pong With Kersh

The Dodgers new right fielder is looking forward to time with teammates.

The Dodgers newest right-fielder was introduced at a press conference alongside David Price Wednesday afternoon at Dodger Stadium. In that introduction, Mookie Betts talked about his excitement in playing with his new team, both on and off of the field.

On the opportunity to play alongside fellow MVP Award winner Cody Bellinger, Betts was ecstatic.

He won MVP and it wasn’t by accident. So going out there and playing with him is going to be fun. I’m sure we can just laugh and enjoy this whole ride.

Off the field, it felt like Betts was equally excited to be a part of the Dodgers. When asked about the ping pong table that makes an appearance every Spring Training, Betts knew he would have to bring his A-game. Especially if he wants to best Clayton Kershaw at his game.

We’ll see. I play a little bit, but I’ve definitely heard he’s the best…we gotta go play and see.

Mookie was also not shy to brag about some of his off the field accomplishments as well. As you may or may not already know, Mookie Betts may be one of the best bowlers in all of baseball.

I’ve got a few 300 games. Bowling is the first thing I started doing actually, so I definitely love that and I’ll be doing that out here.

Above all, it really feels like Mookie is happy to be in Los Angeles with the Dodgers and excited to compete. For a guy that has been through a lot the past week, Mookie was present enough to ask every question asked of him, and even stick around for a few extra one-on-ones with reporters.

  1. I believe our dodgers are finally a complete team all around. Especially with Betts & Price on our side. My biggest worry isn’t our team, it’s all about Dave Roberts. He has shown in the past to make big mistakes in how he utilizes what he’s working with. And always finds an excuse for why things didn’t go our way in a world series.
    Well let’s wait an see if he does it again this year in October. He should have no excuse coming this time around especially with a complete team. If by chance he doesn’t get the job done by his way of utilizing what he has, which is a all around complete team. Then hopefully the front office will finally realize that the team isn’t the problem it’s Roberts ability to do the job right. And get rid of him and find someone who knows more about dealing with a Championship team.

  2. DR HAS SHOWN HE DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO MANAGE PITCHERS. SO YOU GET MORE PITCHERS & DR WILL MORE CONFUSED THAN EVER. DR PLAYS THE TEXAS SUFFLE & THAN WATCH THINGS GO TO HELL.
