Nothing like being arguably the best team in Major League Baseball AND having a ton of fun, right? That’s the Los Angeles Dodgers for ya.

Sure, the San Francisco Giants are ahead of them by a couple of games in the standings, but there are more than five weeks left in the season and some might say the Dodgers, top to bottom, have the better roster.

Plus, the Dodgers have a ton of characters on this team, from Max Scherzer to Max Muncy to Joe Kelly to Cody Bellinger.

They’re fun. Isn’t baseball better that way?

And it was truly all fun and games for the Dodgers on Sunday (besides the loss to the Mets) because during the pregame the players were hitting golf shots from home plate at a target in the outfield to … determine who would get the No. 1 overall pick in their fantasy football draft. Bellinger’s money shot sealed the deal and the guys went wild.

Cody Bellinger’s golf swing looked good and Twitter trolls tried to ruin it.

What a stroke from Belli! We’ve seen him hit a golf ball before, so this is nothing new. Apparently, the shot ricocheted from far away and made its way closest to the target to clinch the top of the draft order. Fun! Can’t we all enjoy?

Nope! Twitter trolls tried to ruin the moment for Bellinger, citing his poor 2021 season. Get ready for these zingers, you might fall off your chair.

Roasted.

That … wouldn’t be fun at all?

And here’s the best:

@1stamendment66 with the take of all takes, telling the Dodgers to focus on baseball because you cannot possibly conduct ANY other activity when you’re 2.5 games out of the division lead despite winning 15 of your last 19 games. Shame!

Everyone’s aware Bellinger isn’t having a good campaign, but he’s played in only 66 games and has been hampered by concerning shoulder and leg injuries. It’s certainly troubling that he’s not showing any signs of improvement after playing for three straight months (he missed nearly all of April and May) but he has a powerful lineup around him, so it’s only a matter of time. And when he does find his stroke? That 2.5-game lead for the Giants will evaporate in a flash, @1stamendment66 will be taken down by the woke mob, and the Dodgers will be even more of a threat to repeat.

For now, though, Bellinger is on the clock. Cue the stoner Bellinger meme for his decision on the first overall pick.
