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 …

Historical LAD ROY positional player voting results

With Cody Bellinger expected to win the NL 2017 Rookie of the Year award, let’s take a look at all the LAD position players who have gotten at least one vote for the award. In 1960 Frank Howard won over his teammate Tommy Davis and future HOF Ron Santo. Frank Howard had an illustrious career …

LAD Team HR leaders, 25 or younger

With Cody Bellinger leading the Dodgers in home runs at age 21, the Dodgers have now had thirteen players twenty-five or younger to lead the team in home runs. Bellinger could make this list four more times. Let that sink in. Bellinger not only ended up with more home runs than Mike Piazza, he did …

Cody Bellinger hit his 34th home run last night and tied Ryan Braun and Walt Dropo as he sets his sights on Hal Trosky and Mike Piazza.  Cody is also only one behind Aaron Judge who has hit his 35 home runs in eighty more plate appearances. Cody now sits alone with the most home …

Dicking around with LAD bWAR

With so many Dodgers having great seasons, while premature I thought it would be fun to check in on the all-time bWAR infield leaders for the Dodgers and see how the new brood is matching up. I used > 5 bWAR as the criteria Since bWAR is an accumulation stat the more you play the more you …

LAD single season home run leaders

A few weeks ago I displayed the table showing every single LAD team home run leader from 1958 to 2017. This table is a little different. It is going to show you the history of the most home runs hit in a season since 1958. Charlie Neal and Gil Hodges held the record for only …

Cody Bellinger moving up with 28

With Cody Bellinger on pace to set the new NL Rookie Home Run record, I thought now would be a good time to look at the names he’ll be passing on his way to the record. Frank Robinson blasted those 38 home runs way back in 1956 when he was just 20 years old. That …

Chasing Piazza / Robinson / Green / McGwire with number 28

While doing this chase segment for Cody Bellinger I’ve been remiss in leaving out Frank Robinson and Wally Berger who both hold the NL rookie home run single season record of 38. With Joc Pederson and Corey Seager dropping off after Cody Bellinger hit his 27th home run on Sunday, I’ll add Frank Robinson to …

LAD First half leaderboards – Slugging Percentage

Cody Bellinger ranks 3rd at the half in slugging percentage.  No surprise that Sheffield and Piazza are one and two. It is rankling that the order is not reversed.  That was some trade. Paul Lo Duca gets an appearance because of my generous criteria of only 200 plate appearances. That doesn’t negate the fact that …
