Dodgers: Former GM Examines Dynamic of Betts & Bellinger Together
The Los Angeles Dodgers did what it takes to land Mookie Betts in a trade from the Boston Red Sox officially. Finally, it’s safe to come out and talk about the exciting stuff. For example, the organization now rosters dual superstars in Cody Bellinger and Mookie Betts.
Obviously, it’s so mind-blowing exciting that it’s hard to really get your head around. It sounds like a combination that someone would be able to make happen only on a video game. However, it’s now reality.
Recently, former general manager Steve Phillips discussed the duo of Bellinger and Betts the best way he could on Sirius XM MLB Network Radio.

Truly, you can’t say it better than Phillips puts it simply.
“When I think about Mookie Betts and the Dodgers, I think about Betts and Cody Bellinger on the same team. Mookie Betts and Cody Bellinger on the same team, is absolutely off the charts.”
It’s fun to start thinking about the possibility that one star player feeds off the other. While it remains to be seen who will be Batman and who will be Robin in 2020 based on performance, it’s probably going to help make both players more productive.

The Dodgers have added an incredible offensive player to hit in front of Bellinger. In addition – the pair will play side by side in the outfield – which should make for some highlight reel defense.
Phillips says to give the Dodgers some credit.
“Give the Dodgers some credit – they took a lot of heat – everybody was saying ‘the Dodgers need to do something of impact’. You know they were saying they lost out on Cole. They lost out on Rendon, they’re not really getting any impact guys. This is impact.”
In closing, to pair these two together sounds like every general manager’s dream scenario. Now, Andrew Friedman has made it reality. All of us will get to enjoy the impact it has in the near future.
