Bellinger leading August offensive onslaught

The top of the Dodger lineup continues to prove why they are the best in baseball. Through games of August 12th,  the top of the lineup has four of the five best offensive performances so far in August. The interloper is Austin Barnes who is doing everything at an elite level in August, albeit in only 20 PA. Look at the walk percentage? Strikeout percentage?

Speaking of strikeout percentage, get a load of Mr. Bellinger. Not only is he continuing to display power, but he’s also making more contact dropping his strikeout percentage below 20%.

That is ridiculous.

Check out the Justin Turner strike out percentage.

Logan Forsythe can’t hit a lick but he gets on base thus adding value to the team.

Slumpers in August so far have been Grandal, Pederson, Hernandez, and even Chase.

The Dodgers are scoring because of the top of the lineup and PUIG.  More on that later today.

    Utley was making pretty good contact on the baseball with the bat Sat & Sun
    but not much to show for it.

    CODY BELLINGER has a real shot at passing McGwire.
