MLB has long been criticized for not marketing their young players very well, but it looks like their taking the first step in trying to remedy that by featuring two of the very best the game has to offer today: Cody Bellinger and Christian Yelich.
It’s called a game of “MVP” where both players are filmed at their home parks and call out shots on where they’re going to hit their bombs. It’s basically like a game of H-O-R-S-E but with the two trying to get the other to reach MVP first, which is kind of ironic, right?
The two players have been on an absolute tear this year with Bellinger coming out of the gates hot, while Yelich has started to heat up on the road after hitting a majority of his home runs from the friendly confines of Miller Park.
At the end of the day, it’s a fun piece with the two players trying to talk some trash. This definitely reminds me of the old McDonald’s commercials of Bird vs. Jordan, calling their shots from the rafters.
Who’s your MVP?
