… Says Jerry Hairston

“Outside of Mike Trout, he’s the best player in baseball,” the former World Series champ says … “I think he will be the MVP.”
Of course, Belli is in the middle of an EPIC season … dude has 25 home runs, 62 RBIs and is batting .353 — but most baseball experts still have him outside of the MLB’s ultra-elite.
But, Hairston tells us Bellinger not only deserves to be in the top 5 … he’s No. 2 just behind Trout, saying, “I really believe it.”
“He does everything well. He’s right there with Mike. Cody is awesome.”
Hairston played in the MLB from 1998 to 2013 — with stints on the Yankees, Dodgers, Orioles, Cubs and more! He was a part of the NYY 2009 championship squad.
