This is the first year in about 20 that I haven’t been able to watch baseball consistently due to life changes and it just being a rough year. Thank you for reminding me, and you are right, they could spend it, I just haven’t been able to keep up to see if they are willing because they were absolutely not willing during the pre-season.

      @Schulzy
      How fast is Shohei Ohtani? Faster than you think
      Well, close. Ohtani, as Scioscia correctly pointed out, is the second-fastest player on the Angels, which is amazing when you consider that he is also the most uniquely versatile player in baseball. Ohtani's average sprint speed, according to Statcast, is 28.2 feet per second, which ranks within the top 25 percent in the majors and isn't too far behind Trout (29.2 feet per second).
      On April 22, in a home game against the San Francisco Giants, Ohtani reached 30 feet per second on a groundout to shortstop Brandon Crawford, a mark that Statcast considers "elite."

      ​@Hustle Coder It's a team sport in that you require a total team output. It doesn't require chemistry, it requires combining individual performances. A star pitcher might be able to throw about 14% of their team's innings in a season. Top hitters ~12%. You score runs by not failing collectively, you prevent runs by using additional pitchers. You need a large set of strong players.
      In a lot of other sports, like say basketball, a single star player can greatly influence the game night in night out.

      @Sander Appel There's a video on YT from his 2018 rookie season, in Phoenix, for a Coyotes game. Shohei is given a hockey jersey to try on, only problem is that the average xxl/XXXl hockey player wasn't a world-class swimmer or surfer w/ corresponding wide shoulders. Ooopppsss! Further, Ippei should have been given a jersey - key team member.

      @Sander Appel There's a video where Ohtani is at a Phoenix hockey game. They give him an XXL or XXL hockey jersey to try on, and it binds his swimmer shoulders. Ooopppsss! The other mistake Phoenix made was not to give Ippei a jersey. He's a key team member.

      Hate to break to you but despite having the 2 best players in the sport and a couple other big names, the Angels are terrible. Mike Trout (a future lock for the Hall of Fame in his own right) has been in the league for 11 years and has only been to the playoffs once in 2014.

    • TheFirebird123456
      TheFirebird123456 10 days ago +10

      oh boy. if u do that youll lose interest in baseball real quick. The Angels are a cursed franchise, in the past 8 years they have had half the AL MVP awards (3 for Mike Trout and 1 for Ohtani), yet outside of those 2 they suck to the point they only been to the playoffs once in that time span and were knocked out in the first round. This year is also the same. its believed that ohtani will either be traded during the off season/next season or leave the team in free agency at the end of the season b/c the team is so bad.

      @King Swagger Yeah man and they have a couple of good enough young guys over there that are developing such as Rengifo. They get that in addition to 1b & beefed up bullpen they can surely make a run. Once they clinch a spot in any way its all back to 0-0. I also think it would help to get Sandovals walk rate down in addition to another above average/ elite arm. If they cannot put it together they should be let go as a mercy move by the owner lolol It would be nothing short of a tragedy if Trout/Ohtani never sniff the post season.

    For anyone who suspects Ohtani to be on PED, I just want to say that Ohtani is from Japan, a country where I once found my naked 10,000 yen bill at the nearest police station after it slipped out of my pocket (true story). People here (especially outside of Tokyo) are ingrained with a sense of honesty like no other in the world. My heart would break if he was actually using PED, but I highly doubt that he would cheat other athletes like that. Another example is Ichiro who explained how he could never break his bat in frustration like American ball players do because he would feel terrible for the craftsmen who makes his bats. Dignity, honesty, sincerity, whatever you want to call it, but Ohtani has too much of this I don't think he's capable of cheating.

But a long time ago I realized it wasn't worth advocating someone's innocence or guilt when we don't know them or the secrets that they keep. But I think Ohtani's cool. The talent is one thing, but the fact that he sacrificed millions up front just to prove himself on the biggest stage is one of the coolest stories in all of baseball history and I can't help but root for the guy.

      @skellez I hope the Angels decide to trade him in the off-season. Angels need to decide to with move the franchise forward or another fun with Shohei season. Their farm system is not producing with no one of any note getting promoted for next year. After agreeing to the buy out of ARB1 and 2, Ohtani has a 20m arbitration 3 salary for 2023 and gets the Angels a compensation pick if they keep him and he surely turns down a qualifying offer for 2024.

    Ohtani's way of life seems to be an ideal way to live, satisfying the "desire for self-actualization" at the top of the pyramid in Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs theory. He can be one of the role models for many people, not only as an athlete, but also as a way of life. Frankly speaking, I envy his way of life honestly.

    Ohtani will most definitely be in the HOF, his number will be retired and whatever team he ends with if they have a team HOF he will be in it. Ohtani is crazy good, he an Judge have to be the two scariest players to pitch or hit against.

    The only similar kind of two way dominance I’ve seen in a sport was Rogerio Ceni in 2007 who was arguably one of the top goalkeepers in the world and scored a mind boggling 20 goals in one season.

      @Little Moist Bean totally different comparison. In basketball you’re expected to play defense and offense, football and baseball you’re not, and no goalie in soccer is expected to score goals.

      @Teo Falleiro If a keeper winning all those accolades and scoring on avg over 15 goals a season for three years doesn't put him in the top goalkeepers idk what does. I hated Ceni, still kind of do, because he was the biggest player ever of one of my team's biggest rivals and always seemed to score insane free kicks against us., but during those 3 years his shot-stopping ability compiled with his outrageous free kick skills made him one of the best in the world.

    I love Judge and Ohtani, but damn this MVP is so hard to make a true decision as to who to root for. I kind of wish Judge just got every single batting award, but Ohtani gets the MVP or if Judge gets it, they need to make a Shohei Ohtani Award for the most VERSATILE player.

    Shohei’s injury history is one of those weird things in baseball where the most logical answer is completely wrong. Like Pujols somehow playing better in a league that didn’t allow the DH, it just makes no sense that a guy with that workload and that injury history would flourish once he was allowed to play with little to no extra rest. But, he has flourished since Maddon just allowed him to β€œbe a baseball player”

    Ohtani hops across the foul line during each inning. Something he prob picked up on in Japan. Not touching the foul line is an old baseball superstition. I find it so interesting that a superstition like that transcends players of all backgrounds.

  • CHAOTIC426

    Ohtani is one of those athletes that changes his sport maybe not necessarily in the present, but 5, 10, even 15 years in the future. I fully expect to see teams slowly start to pack their rosters with 2 way players within the next decade, and I think it'll be feasible as I fully expect kids to start training as 2 way players BECAUSE of Ohtani. Also, doesn't hurt that he's pretty much a freak of nature xD

      Michael Lorenzen BEGGED the reds to let him play both ways. They even used him as a defensive replacement and let him start some games in center field a few years ago in September.
      Lorenzen is now on the Angels and no longer wants to do both bc he said there no way he can put in the work on both sides Ohtani does.

    He was blessed with good timing and opportunity. His older brother had longed to join Little League when he was in elementary school, but his parents were so busy with work at the time that they could not afford to grant his wish. His father regretted this and gave Shohei the opportunity to play baseball early on so that he would not make the same mistake. His parents still feel sorry for Shohei's older brother. Successful person is also blessed with good timing and opportunity. That may be what we call fate.
