Max Muncy is now in Manny Ramirez territory

Most Dodger fans can remember the impact that Manny Ramirez had on the Dodger franchise in the summer of 2008. Manny had the greatest run of any Dodger in history, putting up a 1.232 OPS after he was acquired dirt cheap in the summer of 2008.

Max Muncy is now one of seven Dodgers to have an OBP > .400 and a Slug% > .600 with at least 200 plate appearances. The big difference is that these were the final season stats for the other six but for Muncy, the season is still going on, and there is no way in hell he can keep up this pace.

Or can he?

    Turner Ward says there is a chance!

    Muncy is looking out farther for the ball and is timed up.
    Watch his home run from last night and you will see what I mean.

    Muncy brought his knowledge of the strike zone with him.
    Now Ward has introduced some technique that Muncy is assimilating.

    Max Muncy, late bloomer.
