Monster Card Monday: 2017 Cody Bellinger

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 00:42:22 +0000

Okay, 2017 Cody Bellinger may not be 1941 Ted Williams or 1911 Ty Cobb but for a draftable rookie, he’s a monster.  In honor of the Boys of Summer 2018 draft which happened Sunday, he’s my pick for Monster Monday. For the Dodger, Bellinger hit 39 homeruns in 548 plate…
