Dodgers Fans React to Bellinger’s Swing Change and Corresponding Success

If there’s one thing Cody Bellinger knows, it’s swing changes. Throughout his six seasons in Los Angeles, he has been a constant tinkerer when it comes to his swing. This has caused consternation among Dodger fans, many of whom are sure they know which swing he should stick with.

Constant swing changes aren’t necessarily a bad thing — it’s hard to find two video clips of Hall of Fame shortstop Cal Ripken Jr. where he had the same swing in both.

But obviously, when someone has reached the historic highs Bellinger reached in his 2019 MVP season and then reached the historic lows he’s had the last couple years, it’s understandable that fans are anxious for Belli to find The One Swing to Rule Them All and stick with it.

Is there a chance he has found it? After posting a 1.093 OPS with six extra-base hits in his past seven games, Dodgers Twitter seems to think he might have.

When Cody Bellinger is right, he’s one of the best players in baseball. His defense remains outstanding this year, and he is a top-10 athlete in MLB. Time will tell if this is the swing change or just one more swing change in a long line, but Bellinger and Max Muncy heating up at the same time could make an already formidable Dodgers lineup even more dangerous.
