Hot: Cody Bellinger

Man what else is there to say about Cody Bellinger besides the Cubs would probably not be in a position to win the NL Central without him. Since returning from his hip injury, Bellinger has been one of the most consistent hitters in baseball. In his last thirty games, Bellinger has a .310/.336/.578 slash line with eight home runs and 34 driven in.

Even after missing an entire month of the season, Bellinger's .319 batting average ranks 5th in MLB while his OPS (.915) and RBIs (86) are 7th and 19th respectively. He has truly been one of the best hitters in Major League Baseball this year and he would probably be in the MVP conversation if it weren't for the hip injury.

The Cubs need to do everything in their power to resign Bellinger and keep his talents at Wrigley Field to be a cornerstone of the next great Cubs team.
