Dodgers: The 2019 Dodgers as Avengers Characters
Hulk: Joc Pederson/ Max Muncy
This decision was tough, so I have opted to have two Hulks. I know this is cheating, but both players have qualities similar to that of Hulk.
First off Max Muncy. His ease to hit balls over the fence reminds me of Hulk’s ease of throwing people around. His power is indisputable and he does it in such an easy way. Muncy looks smooth and does not even look like he is trying that hard. Yet he still MASHES baseballs.
This season Muncy is off to an average start. As expected, Muncy has regressed some. Some regression was to be expected after the monster year he had last season. His chase percentages are slightly up along with his strikeout rate. He still has that raw power and can become something close to what he was last season if he is able to tighten up his approach.
Joc reminds me of Hulk for a different reason. This is because there are two sides to Joc much like Hulk. Sometimes Joc looks absolutely horrendous. That would be Joc as Bruce Banner. Then if he gets hot he can be the most dangerous player in that lineup. That would be Joc with his Hulk mode activated.
Joc is hot and cold. He started the season off with a bang. Pederson had 7 hits and 3 home runs over the first 3 games of the season. Then Joc would go for 1 for 23 over the next 8 games he played. That seems to be a trend in his career. He always goes on a tear, then hits a heavy slump. Hopefully, Joc can be Hulk more often than he is Bruce Banner for the remainder of the 2019 season.
