Is Justin Turner having the greatest LA Dodger 3rd baseman season ever?

Justin Turner

No!!!

But if you throw out Beltre’s super year, Pedro’s 1983, and all the years of the greatest Dodger 3rd baseman (Ron Cey), he is:)  Kind of interesting the possible future HOF Adrian Beltre only had one OPS+ season above 120 in which he had at least 250 plate appearances. Beltre has had five of them since leaving LA.
