Question of the Week: What’s up with Cody Bellinger? (78:40)
Thoughts on Didi Gregorius? His exit velocity is terrible but hes one home run behind Trout for leading the league in homeruns. Obviously this pace can’t sustain itself but how legit will it be when he settles down. 30 HR season from Didi? He isn’t striking out much at all either.
Look at Didi’s home and away splits. All 9 HR’s are at home and all of them pulled to right field I believe. He truly has mastered the art of hitting in Yankee Stadium.
Look at my previous article on Didi. I’m working on a follow up article addressing this season.
