Wanna buy Andruw Jones’ house?

You may not think just under $5 million is any kind of a bargain, but it is 25,000 square feet, so your money really is going a long, bloated, way:

Sited on a prime 2-acre lot with world class views, Jones’ home is described in the listing as “The ULTIMATE in LUXURY.” In most cases, this type of hyperbole would be brushed off as just your run-of-the-mill broker babble. However, when you consider the sheer size of Jones’ home (it’s huge; has 9 bedrooms and 15 bathrooms) and it’s laundry list of fine features (indoor basketball court, elevator, indoor resistance pool, sauna, indoor batting cage, double waterfall, etc.), it’s quite clear this home is in a class of its own, or as the listing chimes, “For the buyer who wants the BEST of everything.”

Thing is, it used to be a lean and efficient house but it ballooned up to its current size over several years beginning in the mid-2000s.

No word on how much you’d have to pay to get all of the Andruw Jones-ness out of it before move-in, because that would definitely be needed.

Following a dominant 5-1 win to clinch the National League Championship Series on Saturday night, the Dodgers named outfielder Cody Bellinger their MVP of the series.

Bellinger, 23, made noise when it mattered. Entering Saturday’s game, he carried a meager .190/.227/.238 batting line with just four hits and two RBI, but his hits in Games 4 and 7 became the difference-makers the Dodgers needed to keep pace with the Brewers and clinch the NL pennant. In Game 4, it was Bellinger’s 13th-inning base hit off of Junior Guerra that put the Dodgers over the top for the walk-off 2-1 win. The outfielder returned to put the finishing touches on the series with a go-ahead home run — his first of the postseason — in the second inning of Game 7.

Bellinger wrapped his second season in the Dodgers’ organization in 2018, slashing .260/.343/.470 with 25 home runs, an .814 OPS, and 3.6 fWAR across 632 PA and all 162 games. He’s the youngest Dodgers player to receive the award to date.
