So much for the home run derby ruining Cody Bellinger.

The age-old fear of a meaningless competition supposedly messing with the swings of the best hitter in baseball is a ridiculous myth. How do we know this?

Example A: Cody Bellinger. 

The home run is far from the easiest part of hitting for the cycle, but Bellinger got it out of the way early.

Dodgers Dugout: Cody Bellinger, Joc Pederson and the myth of the Home Run Derby jinx

  Dodgers Dugout: Cody Bellinger, Joc Pederson and the myth of the Home Run Derby jinx A lot of Dodgers fans are nervous about Cody Bellinger taking part in this year's All-Star Home Run Derby.The Home Run Derby myth

Cody James Bellinger (born July 13, 1995) is an American professional baseball first baseman and outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers of Major League Baseball (MLB). He was named an MLB All-Star and the National League's Rookie of the Year in 2017.

Cody Bellinger became the first rookie in Dodgers history to hit for the cycle when he tripled in the seventh inning Saturday against the Miami Marlins.

The Dodgers star completed the cycle in the seventh inning with a triple. The official scorer had to intervene, but it was ruled as such. With the three-bagger, Bellinger became the first Dodgers rookie EVER to hit for the cycle.

This kid is unbelievable. He's had a profound impact on LA since his call-up. Initially, the former top prospect forced Dave Roberts' hand, making him go back on his previous word that Bellinger was just an early-season call-up.

He's the most dangerous hitter in an LA lineup that includes Corey Seager, Justin Turner, Yasiel Puig and eventually Adrian Gonzalez.

You have to be kidding me.

Aaron Judge smashes his way to Home Run Derby title

  Aaron Judge smashes his way to Home Run Derby title Aaron Judge dominated the All-Star Home Run Derby in the same manner he has smashed his way through his rookie season.The larger-than-life New York Yankees slugger beat Minnesota's Miguel Sano 11-10 with two minutes to spare in the final Monday night, reaching 513 feet and displaying remarkable power to all fields.

Dodgers rookie Cody Bellinger hit two home runs in the first two innings of Monday’s game against the Mets, giving him 21 in his first 51 career MLB games. That’s one more homer than Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez had in 51 games to open his career in 2015 and 2016.

Cody Bellinger did it at the expense of the Marlins on Saturday night.

How the Los Angeles Dodgers built a powerhouse .
It’s easy to look at the Los Angeles Dodgers and dismiss their remarkable success as being fueled by a $250 million payroll, allowing them to throw money at every problem that arises. Sure, the Dodgers’ financial power has played a role in their success. But to chalk their success strictly up to that is ignoring a lot of the smart, savvy moves made by one of baseball’s best front offices.Despite their wealth, the Dodgers maintain a homegrown core and have identified and signed non-superstars who can help the team. One of those under-the-radar acquisitions has turned out to be the team’s best offensive player.
