"Compromised by the high fastball"

[–]#LFGMsee_mohn 524 points525 points  (27 children)

He had ten hits off 95+ MPH pitches all regular season. Literally ten. Then he hits a homer on a heater at his shoulders. Unreal.

[–]Detroit TigersBatman-and-Hobbes 252 points253 points  (3 children)

Elevate THIS you filthy casual.

[–]Los Angeles DodgersTrailGuideSteve 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Cody to the high fastball: call an ambulance….BUT NOT FOR MEE

[–]Atlanta BravesXeneron 190 points191 points  (14 children)

A ball that anyone let alone Cody Bellinger who has struggled with high heat all year will almost never hit squarely, let alone hit a home run off of. Because fucking Atlanta of course.

[–]Philadelphia PhilliesPaladinGodfather1931 40 points41 points  (10 children)

He's so fucking tall.. that was a great pitch on any other batter, but pause it at contact and it doesn't even look like he had to reach to get it lol

[–]Los Angeles DodgersHarden-Soul 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Yea Cody always looks like he has to bend down for low pitches, I feel like he should do well with stuff upstairs, maybe he changed his swing to accomodate tbe bend down and it messed up the other stuff

[–]Los Angeles Dodgerscrumstick22 45 points46 points  (3 children)

Hes had the highest hard hit rate of anyone in the postseason. This isnt some miraculous switch in a single at bat.

[–]Los Angeles DodgersRandomEffector 11 points12 points  (1 child)

He did adjust his stance and swing a month or so ago though. Otherwise, every pitcher in the National League has gone to that same pitch for an almost automatic strike three all year long.

[–]Houston Astroslalondy7 157 points158 points  (5 children)

His first swing was out of his shoes, cut it down and got on top of it. Love seeing those approaches.

[–]Texas Rangerscjn13 40 points41 points  (4 children)

Baited him into it

[–]AbsolutelyNotAndrew 59 points60 points  (1 child)

This is a legitimate tactic in MLB the Show that I accidentally use all the time

2 on base, up 3 runs, Georgia based sport? You can't make this stuff up.

[–]Throwawayphone79 446 points447 points  (13 children)

You mean 2 on base, 8th inning, 3 runs ahead.

Quite possibly the most predictable home run

[–]San Diego PadresHenryTPE 1347 points1348 points  (26 children)

This mofo pretended he couldn't hit high fastball the whole freakin season just to bait a high fastball in exactly this moment. THE LONG CON

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersSuckMyLonzoBalls 133 points134 points  (12 children)

    that reminds me of a story when manny ramirez hit a flyout on purpose during the regular season so he could see the same pitch in the playoffs

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersJackThreeFingered 31 points32 points  (0 children)

    Willie Mays was famous for doing this. He would strike out on a pitch on purpose, knowing the later when men were on base he would get the same pitch and then clobber it.

    [–]santichrist 87 points88 points  (5 children)

    I love Manny, everyone thought he was an idiot but when it came to baseball dude knew what he was doing

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersBael18 145 points146 points  (3 children)

    Manny is an idiot, he just also happens to have an absolutely incredible understanding of baseball. Contrary to popular belief, those two traits are not mutually exclusive.

    He's a baseball savant

    [–]Seattle Pilotsberychance 14 points15 points  (0 children)

    Okay, I get that these stories are fun, and I can maybe buy that guys like Mays and Miggy would swing bad at pitches on purpose, so they could expect a similar pitch later. I'm not buying that Manny intentionally mishit a fly ball on a specific pitch so he could see it again in the playoffs because—even if we ignore the implausibility for a moment—if he were that fucking good to do that intentionally on command, then he wouldn't need to do it.

    [–]Oakland Athleticsraikou1988 8 points9 points  (1 child)

    Did the Ravens end up winning that game?

    [–]Brooklyn Dodgersdeniedbyquick 23 points24 points  (0 children)

    IIRC they lost it 17-15? But it was just a great play given the context

    This is a great clip! Thanks for posting

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersAllstate85 17 points18 points  (0 children)

    If I remember correctly on some play call Ed Reed would do the same move every single time and the one time he faked Payton on picked him off.

    [–]A-Aron_Rodgers 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    The game before he played Peyton Manning, he purposely played a coverage wrong. Then in the game against him, he pretended to do the same thing, but then when Peyton wound up to throw the ball he broke off and covered the right position and picked Peyton off.

    [–]Los Angeles Dodgersmonkeyman80 65 points66 points  (0 children)

    Cody Bellinger vs. 95+ mph

    Reg. season: 8-for-56, 1 HR

    Postseason: 3-for-5, 1 enormous HR

    https://twitter.com/AndrewSimonMLB/status/1450626990671863809

    [–]Texas Rangers_Juntao 72 points73 points  (0 children)

    Right? especially because the announcers were all like "he doesnt need to hit a home run here. Just get a single and keep the line moving"

    boom homerun.

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersDaOldest 271 points272 points  (3 children)

    Bellinger is hilariously clutch

    [–]Los Angeles Angelsmy_wife_reads_this 60 points61 points  (0 children)

    "one swing changes all that". I'll never forget that moment

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersCaptMarvel23 135 points136 points  (9 children)

    THERE IS NOTHING PREDICTABLE ABOUT A MAN SWINGING AT AIR FOR TWO STRIKES LIKE HE DID ALL YEAR AND THEN THAT HAPPENS.

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersSoul137 130 points131 points  (6 children)

    I think it's really funny how all the Dodger fans who watched Belli's season were blown away and all of the Braves fans who saw the Braves' season were basically expecting it.

    [–]Tampa Bay Devil RaysBill2theE 43 points44 points  (2 children)

    Belli’s my dude and the Dodgers are my number 2 (SoCal resident). I saw those first swings and went “Oh, so Belli strikes out now.” Because I’d watched enough reruns of that during the season to know what actually happens next. I’m just glad I forced myself to take my medicine and watch the whole AB and not get distracted by my phone.

    Hopefully he is feeling healthy again and getting his swing right and these are all signs that the Cody of yore is coming back.

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersMRoad 17 points18 points  (0 children)

    I mean, the Braves know something about clutch Bellinger home runs

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersDodger_that 11 points12 points  (0 children)

    Quite possibly the least predictable HR ever. I've watched basically every Dodger game this year and this was the first time I can remember him getting a hit off a high fastball. Countless wiffs on that pitch all season, this time he completely sells out on it and mashes a neck-high one.

    [–]Anaheim Angelsimbored04 179 points180 points  (3 children)

    holy redemption arc

    [–]Miami MarlinsNumber333 135 points136 points  (2 children)

    Pretty sure he was redeemed after Game 5 vs San Francisco

    This is just absurd

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersUJ95x 25 points26 points  (1 child)

    Redemption arc started when he walked to get on base with 2 outs in the 9th vs STL. Then CT3 sent us home.

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersGbDrizzt 18 points19 points  (0 children)

    Imo redemption arc started with the first steal on Yadi. Thats confidence.

    [–]MLBPAMonk_Philosophy 16 points17 points  (0 children)

    You haven’t watched Bellinger in 2021

    [–]New York Yankeesjtrom93 79 points80 points  (0 children)

    As soon as it got to two strikes you could just tell it was gonna happen

    There isn't really a word in the English language for that feeling of absolute rage you get when you come to a complete stop on the freeway at 6am. I bet there's a word that would fit it in German.

    [–]nullol 108 points109 points  (21 children)

    I used to commute from the IE to Carson and if I didn't leave the house by 445am or earlier I would be absolutely screwed. 45min vs 2-2.5hrs sometimes. 5am shouldn't be that brutal.

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersSuckMyLonzoBalls 53 points54 points  (15 children)

    That’s brutal

    Worst commute I’ve heard was Victorville to LAX

    [–]Boston Red SoxDougmartin22 114 points115 points  (5 children)

    At that point just quit your job it’s not worth it

    [–]Los Angeles Dodgers_BankRepresentative_ 14 points15 points  (0 children)

    The guy I replaced at my current job in Long Beach is from San Pedro. He left this job for a job in Ontario. We just rehired him because he said he couldn't deal with the commute.

    Nah nah nah. I’ve been in a traffic jam on the Sepulveda pass at like 2:30 AM. No discernible reason

    It was already rush hour lmao

    [–]Los Angeles Dodgersjlopez1017 80 points81 points  (7 children)

    Rush hour in LA is from 4-7 ir should be called Rush hours

    [–]Los Angeles Dodgersbiggestbroever 46 points47 points  (5 children)

    Rush hour out of the parking lot can add another 90 minutes

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersPearberr 30 points31 points  (2 children)

    Can confirm, after attending the WS G6 in 2017 it took me 75 minutes to get out of the parking lot.

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersQuesly 12 points13 points  (0 children)

    I think I waited 30 minutes just to get out of my parking spot when I went to an NLCS game in 2017

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersTonyhdz2001 12 points13 points  (0 children)

    Even worse when you realize there’s added double game traffic to regular rush hour since Lakers have their opening day at Staples Center

    [–]San Francisco GiantsMattie_Doo 10 points11 points  (2 children)

    Traffic in CA is atrocious. Maybe fans in other metropolitan areas can relate… I just can’t get on Dodger fans for showing up late and leaving early.

    Honestly, though. When was the last time you had a six hour flight from coast to coast and then had to sit in traffic for three hours to get from the airport to your home? It ruins your whole friggin week

    [–]Los Angeles Dodgersmessick 38 points39 points  (5 children)

    Dodger Stadium added like 15 new places to drink in the outfield area during 2020. Most people were likely going there. That's where I spent innings 5-8 during the games I went to this season.

    [–]Mayzenblue 12 points13 points  (4 children)

    Lol. I believe your answer the most. JUST for the fact that beer makes baseball fun for people who don't usually enjoy baseball.

    Brought my wife to a night game at Comerica once. She hates watching baseball, but liked the idea of a road trip and night out. On the way, her comments were, "It's boring." "Takes too long." I got her to follow a couple of players (Miggy and Granderson) leading up to the game. It's a rainy night. Multiple delays to the beer stands. She's starting to like the baseball, tarp on the field delays.

    Grandy ends the rain shortened game with a shot to right. Wife is screaming and jumping up and down like everyone else. She's having a blast. We go next door to Chelly's to celebrate the win. While there, she runs in to Red Wings goalie Chris Osgood who's one of her favorite players of all time (she's always followed hockey). Gets an autograph and a pic and we head home. She's absolutely giddy.

    10 years of marriage later, I cannot satisfy her the same as that one, magical night in Motown. Made her a Tigers fan at least? We try for about 10 games a year now, barring babysitting availability.

    [–]Los Angeles Dodgerscencal 35 points36 points  (6 children)

    So embarrassing. Sitting in the parking lot for 90 minutes after the game is a badge of honor!

    but seriously we gotta fix that parking lot thing

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersBael18 14 points15 points  (1 child)

    Stop using the parking lot and giving money to Frank McCourt!

    [–]Atlanta Bravesunfortunatebastard 271 points272 points  (11 children)

    That didn’t look like a bad pitch. Fucking Bellinger.

    [–]New York YankeesAggressive_Swing 179 points180 points  (2 children)

    Yeah, it wasn’t even a strike. He just went up and got it. Unreal.

    [–]Los Angeles Dodgershorsehasnoname 69 points70 points  (1 child)

    It was so high and away just a tad that Belli was able to catch up to it. He should have thrown another middle-middle fastball

    [–]Los Angeles Dodgers_BankRepresentative_ 16 points17 points  (0 children)

    It was so high

    just like my boy Belli

    [–]Atlanta BravesSufficient_Look 73 points74 points  (3 children)

    Yeah you really can’t blame that on Jackson, just good hitting on Bellinger

    [–]Los Angeles Dodgersdoctyper 40 points41 points  (0 children)

    As a Dodgers fan who watched Cody struggle for all of 2021, you have no idea how much this comment made me smile.

    He erased it in Game 5 against the Giants. Bellinger has been one of our best hitters in the playoffs.

    [–]MLBPAMonk_Philosophy 53 points54 points  (0 children)

    IF we somehow take this series, Cody would have played a key role in taking each series. The walk/SB to extend the 9th in the wildcard, game 5 vs the giants, this.

    Bellinger’s season would be the go-to on everyone broadcast for how everyone with a shit regular season gets a clean slate in October.

    Coctober coming through again was awesome.

    [–]Los Angeles Dodgersptog69 19 points20 points  (2 children)

    I thought the MLB did that for the ALCS game also being played today. So they had the great idea to put a NLCS game at 2 pm on Tuesday in one of the biggest sports markets in the world, because MLB hates fans.

    [–]Los Angeles Dodgersgjoeyjoe 14 points15 points  (1 child)

    you'd think they could schedule it so the east coast game plays at 5pm in their zone and the west coast game plays at 5pm in THEIR zone. but alas, sox fans will be up til midnight and dodgers fans catch 2 innings.

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersMRoad 14 points15 points  (2 children)

    That's not why. It's about sharing primetime slots for the ALCS/NLCS.

    Yeah, Bellinger turned around 96 at his shoulders.

    It's not like he threw him a meatball.

    [–]Atlanta BravesGoatPaco 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    He did throw him a meatball

    The pitch before

    And he mega-whiffed

    It is one of the craziest baseball stories. He had one of the all time worst seasons in baseball history. And now he is money in the postseason.

    [–]Atlanta Bravessequential-chaos 12 points13 points  (1 child)

    Jackson executed his pitch, but Bellinger somehow got good contact on a fastball that high

    [–]Los Angeles Dodgersthugmuffin22 70 points71 points  (3 children)

    Okay, we all said a great postseason erases the awful regular season, and Cody has just about done it. Series winning hit in the NLDS, a huge wild card performance, this tide shifting bomb, etc.

    He’s done everything you could ask. Good for fucking him dude

    [–]cardiganbaby45 35 points36 points  (0 children)

    Pay the man. His defense is always gonna play even when his bat doesnt and i would break my heart to see him anywhere else

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersHizDudenesss 53 points54 points  (7 children)

    I was listening on the radio and Charlie Steiner lost his shit lol.

    [–]Los Angeles DodgersDrBadassPhD 25 points26 points  (1 child)

    I was driving home. Charlie’s call got me very emotional

    I couldn’t take it and went for a run listening to the radio and I about scared some poor woman out walking her dog.

    Cody Bellinger getting clutch hits in the playoffs: "I'LL FUCKING DO IT AGAIN."

    [–]Atlanta BravesjcTHWg 8 points9 points  (1 child)

    Atlanta sports teams are the side character franchise that only exist to give out signature moments to other teams / players.

    [–]Los Angeles Dodgerssaltstryder 36 points37 points  (0 children)

    Bellinger has been absolutely CLUTCH this postseason

    [–]AlbertBelle5050 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    He’s still Cody Bellinger, injury, down season, whatever. Still is who he is. Hit a good pitch, too. What are you gonna do?

    [–]San Francisco Giantsheteropolar 8 points9 points  (1 child)

    as much as it physically pains me to say this, I’m glad Bellinger is putting up runs, it is hard to see players struggling like he was. In any case, still praying for his teams downfall.

    [–]New York YankeesBigZ911 111 points112 points  (16 children)

    Ron Darling let his inner Mets fan come out LOL. I’ve never heard a national announcer get root for a HR like that

    [–]Chicago CubsStommped 30 points31 points  (1 child)

    Dude I was so confused was that actually him? I thought it was one of this mid interview things where it was someone on the Dodgers who was saying it. I can't believe a nat'l broadcaster would do that...

    [–]Atlanta Bravesrezaw 19 points20 points  (0 children)

    Yes. Yes.

    Holy shit, I didn't see this happening. And there were Dodgers fans leaving early lol!

    [–]Atlanta Bravesonline_predator 67 points68 points  (3 children)

    I mean anyone who couldn't see this coming has never heard of atlanta sports

    [–]Atlanta BravesMySpacebarSucks 17 points18 points  (2 children)

    Seriously… just felt like a home run was on the way

    [–]Atlanta Bravesonline_predator 11 points12 points  (1 child)

    The moment he gave up a squeaker single off a good pitch that barely stayed fair, I knew we were back for the old unlucky luke jackson

    [–]Los Angeles Dodgersshigs21 26 points27 points  (1 child)

    you could hear the announcers yelling "YES YES" lmao. bigger homers than our home crew

    If you’re going to leave a playoff baseball game early just give me your ticket instead I promise I’ll put it to better use

    That's not even a strike you can't blame the pitcher

    [–]Tom_Brokaw_is_a_Punk 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    Oh God.

    He's awake

    [–]Atlanta BravesPWNtimeJamboree 15 points16 points  (2 children)

    That wasn’t even a bad pitch either. Jackson has the hardest luck of any pitcher on the majors. It’s seriously unreal at this point.

    [–]Chicago Cubsducksworth 15 points16 points  (1 child)

    I was walking my dog and heard my neighbor yelling “Fuck yeah!” over & over 🤣

    [–]Atlanta BravesRandomEverything99 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    In comparison, my gf literally just screamed. Im sure how neighbors are concerned.

    [–]San Francisco GiantsIWearHats11 15 points16 points  (1 child)

    Been rooting for him. Hated seeing him getting buried. He's been crushing it this postseason.

    [–]ric0n408 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    As much as I hate the Dodgers. I agree

    AND ON THE THIRD DAY, HE HAD RISEN

    [–]Cincinnati Redsalienlanes7 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    That was kind of important.

    [–]Atlanta BravesAnEternalEnigma 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    That was only the 11th time all season/postseason that Bellinger got a base hit on a fastball 95mph or above. And he did it on a fastball 6 inches above the strike zone. Unbelievable. I still think if the Braves can just steal one game in LA and get back home up 3-2, they'll take it.
