Vin, if he was still working, on Bellinger: “If you play it long enough, this game will humble you.”

Good thing for Rios, AND the Dodgers, that the NL has the DH this season. I hate it, but the Dodgers just have so many bats. Especially now that Pollock is healthy (knocks on skull).

You may not know that Ron Hunt, the famous HBP guy, played for the #Dodgers  in 1967, but didn’t come into his own as a HBP man till going to Frisco in the Tom Haller deal the next winter. From there to the Expos all while leading baseball in HBPs seven straight years. 50 in 1971.
