" ohtani" Discussed on Starting9
"Anybody ostensibly and then outside of that. Just just stop. Because what. I've said this. What's your favorite player. Is doing what the best player is doing is not even close. Just not even close to what shohei otani is doing. It's not even close. I do think though that some of the buzz fizzled out after the all star game some of those what. Some of the buzz feels fizzled out after the all star because he went on a little bit of a street where he didn't hit homers. Not even i don't even think it's i don't even think it's that. I think it's just that i do nickel. it's just. It's hard to go up from there. It's hard to have the first half that shohei had and then you are starting the all star game as the starting pitcher batting first and the number one seed in the homerun derby all in the same span of time. It's hard to be like all right and for my next trick is very high is the next trick would be to sustain it. Sure would be the next trick. And so the homers didn't come after the homerun derby display. And so you're kind of like all right. Well you know what like the hangover is still remembering. How awesome that. All star game thing was where he just did fucking everything. That's pretty cool. So so he's not hitting jack's right now still pitching his ass off. That's the thing is if you're going to turn away because he's not hit a homer in ten games or whatever that's fine but you realize he's gonna pitch a couple times in between them and like you could still appreciate that. Yeah i don't even. I don't even think those people have like turned away. I think it's more so just. He was on such a ridiculous pace that it was very hard to live up to that like even like his talking about like his last eight game series. Three hundred with a ten thirty. Three s. Three bombs i mean he's got forty homers. He said god damn high that is almost impossible to sustain it. He's now the organizational leader for the most homers by a left handed hitter all time for the angels pass reggie jackson who at thirty nine in nine one thousand nine hundred eighty two What what more could you as. If the season ended today it his season ended today. Mvp for sure. it'd be done deal what. I'm not quite sure. what the what. The innings minimum is going to be for him to qualify as a starting pitcher. But if he does. Are we talking about a guy who's now ofensive numbers and offencive production could impact his sil- candidacy. And the reason. I throw that out there and i'm not saying like dallas. They don't take those numbers and factor those in to the pitching award. You shit no. I i get that i'm talking about how a guy who can kill it off. Pensively and play average defense in years past be considered for the gold glove win the gold glove right and it's a lot to do about what he's doing with the back and not so much the glove. So could there be a subconscious impact of otani is doing offensively on the cy young. Vote like whoa dude. Like in the back of my head. This is the dude who still like students taking fucking three four bats. Every time he's taken the mound and then he's doing it after the fact and before like so for him to get out there on the mound and even just do this. Do you start you know. Are you okay with the body of work not going to be as great as somebody else you know because i think right now just off the top of my head. Who's in the front runner position for the aol. Cy young row dawn lance landmass land. Yeah i mean it's not gonna about calling them. He's not going to qualify. What is it. Not why fucking not jared. Because that's the rule you need. What would we arguing slated rules. I've just i've allowed to be bitter about it. He's not going to qualify for. There's not enough time like he's not gonna throw sixty something innings. Are you doubt. are you tell utility. Shohei ohtani can't hit a curveball. Are you are you out fucking shohei ohtani right now. What would he have to. How do you think he has left. He just pitched yesterday. It's august eighteenth. Five okay yeah. There's no fucking chance. So i mean yeah. It's not like we haven't seen someone not qualify for the tidal but when a cy young award but they were it would be a totally unique case. I don't know how they will look at it. But i i yeah. I don't think there's any chance that being said you're so hateful don't hate well. It's just an objective fact. Donate you can't be a starter that doesn't even qualify for the era title. I win the cy. Young award can't do that. It would be one thing if there is a bunch of garbage starters in the league is a landslide still like a sub two not sub to. It's like a two two two two nine maybe roe dawn's like two seven nine. I think something like that or like a no. that's otani otani. i think there's two seven. Nine ro don i think is maybe.

"Was no no one. No one had to put the body on the line. Besides being johnny gums a couple of boston guys getting it done my body online. I hit the dirt for the first round of the ballgame. So tony hit the fucking forty throw who shohei ohtani talking about the performance. That you've been blessed with yeah. I'm talking about the performance. I've had an abundance of chicken tenders this year. Let's call it. let's just call it. How it is. I was the only one who on this podcast saw. This coming knew it was coming. Had the balls to attach my name to the fact that it was coming and now here it is. I think goddamn one third of that was true. No every bit of that. Everybody i think you had the balls to say it was coming but if you were to say you know. He's capable of forty homers. I don't think anyone would have aggressively denied that we were just. I mean like. I said all along is needed to see it. show me. yeah. I told you that. What do you want for christmas. I don't want much just like the new. The new rory. That's out the new for. Could you just ricocheted will i. If i was like next year. Jed lowrie forty tanks. No one's like you know what let's see it like. He's obviously not going to do that. But shohei otani you told me at the beginning of the year. All right forty homers. I'd be like wow. That's a high number but it's in there. Let's see all the speculation came from whether or not he was going to get the at bats to do it. All the speculation came from whether or not he was going to be hitting while and was not going to take away from the at bats and was gonna be able to do it. Let's let's so he's hit forty. Jack's he's only hit two while he's pitched so i don't wanna say is that true. Yeah that's wild. He hits a white sox and then it just hit one yesterday the day before. Whatever almost makes it more impressive. What's out that. he's well. It is forty times mid august. So how many stars. He made his team say fifteen. Now he's made me ten starts he's made eighteen starts eighteen starts. He's got exactly one hundred innings. Yeah what's his record. Eight one eight one. Eight one record on a non eight. To one on the mound. It's just you don't let me let me get a two seven nine. A hundred and twenty strikeouts in one hundred innings. Let me. i'm going to stop myself. Because i could feel myself getting worked up and i don't need to do that. I'm just going to ask you to stop. Not you jeered specifically just the baseball world people in general watching this looking for something to measure this against just stop it and quit trying to find a way to compare him.

" ohtani" Discussed on The Bronx Pinstripes Show - Yankees MLB Podcast
"John and i think that the the jury is still out on him as a pitcher. I think as a hitter we've figured out he can hit and he can. He can be not just a good he could be a a. Mvp caliber hitter. Okay yes. I made the comparison of like josh hamilton. He reminds me of of josh hamilton. When josh hamilton was just like when 'cause when josh hamilton was right he was far and away. The best player in the world like he was so dominant at the plate. And so i think the angels are going to have him continue to pitch because otani wants to continue to pitch and it's all part of his value to the team is that he's also a decent pitcher. He's not a fantastic pitcher. He's decent pitcher a good pitcher. Yeah and i wonder is he gonna continue to start. Could actually make more of an impact being reliever and pitching the seventh or eighth inning or something like that. I don't know if he's going to be ninth inning closer but if he could pitch like the eighth inning then you don't have to well that makes it more debt makes it more muddy though as far as the role because on a given day. If you need him in the eighth inning he might be playing in that game so then he just goes to picture. But then you're taking me bat into the lineup for that for that. It's just different because you're also getting because you start the game with the d. h. Right yeah yes. So you're you're almost putting yourself into a national league situations and you lose that that spot but you are using. That's why they keep it. I assume that's why they keep it clean and he's a starting pitcher. He's not a relief pitcher knowing what we know now. Are you upset that the yankees did not get him. And i know a fault of the yankees. Because he did not want to come to the yankees. But at the time. I was like okay. Whatever this kind of seems like a gimmick anyway and then the yankees acquired giancarlo stanton. So i was like oh who cares about otani the yankees got stat like. We don't need this god to way two way player but now oh my god like if he if he was on the yankees. Magin how big you would be. I mean he's huge. He's we just said it's the face of baseball but if you're playing for the yankees keeping the freaky biggest thing nearly the biggest thing in sports right now i think if he was on the yankees. It's you could argue. That he is is up there as the biggest of the big things in sports bar and baseball cap. Because of the of the demographic i think that's the core of the audience but Yeah he he's he certainly up there. I mean you could argue that you ask. I know hundred people on the street in a name. The city Shohei ohtani aaron judge. How many of them. How many of them will say. Aaron judge not shohei ohtani. Actually i think name. Recognition of judge is still very much up there because autonomy still new but Aaron judge who still you see exactly what that impact is if judges playing somewhere else. It's not nearly as as high. Yeah and judge This kind of goes into the the the thing with judging freddie freeman which i thought was funny. I'm gonna play.

"Is one of the most unique talents. We have in the league defensively as a guy who can truly guard one through five. He's big. he's athletic. He makes players better and he's got like you know some sort of mental block when it comes to offense. It's another reason why he's a unique talent right. He can't shoot he doesn't shoot. It's not that he can't shoot because yang yang can't shoot and it's not bothering him one. Bit yeah shoot inside like he didn't even want to shoot inside even open dunk. That's that's the ben simmons flaw that he can't shoot that to know me when he drives shoot shoot from the outside. He can't shoot from the free throw line. He can make field goals inside the paint but if he were aggressive in seeking those field goals we'd be able to live with it just like we're able to live with janas doing what he's doing one hundred percent say he can shoot when i'm nothing can shoot. I'm saying that he doesn't shoot. That is the bigger problem with them. That is what's making him quote unquote expendable at this point. By the way the other thing about him that we gotta keep in mind is he's under contract and that's huge because you know when i'm acquiring him it's not a situation where he's going to be a free agent next year even the year after that. And that's pretty big in terms of building something if you are a franchise acquiring them. You're going to have to give up. A lot of assets shops is reporting that when you know obviously the sixers saying we want an all-star calva player in return so sorry. Cj mccollum for ben. Simmons isn't going to happen portland. He's one of the strangest talents in the history of the sport. There are not a lot of people who are going to agree with your assessment in a vacuum first ballot hall of famer. Canton won't shoot in basket. Not after what we just saw. I mean there's no way you're saying first ballot hall of famer and as a talent. I don't think his talent is up for dispute. Not just the defense we will say again. He creates more three pointers than anyone in the league for his teammates. So in the in the modern sport that matters that you are somebody better creating threes for shooters. Then anyone in the sport. But i don't think the on his listening to. This is saying. Ben simmons first ballot hall of fame and also say all they want. They want another all-star in return that doesn't necessarily mean that's what the offers are going to be. Cj mccollum actually when you look eh. what ails philadelphia could be a really good piece for them. And i imagine. Ben simmons goes from one of those teams that isn't typically in the game to sign someone when they become available like that Ben simmons gets traded receiver mccollum.

"Going to revolutionize the anomaly scale with not. Because i think the thing is get the the the the team will force you to choose. If you're going to be a pinch you gotta hundred mile fastball. You're gonna pay it. You're not going to be hitting a stimulating store goes dancing. You went out position player than you have to come to the bat. Know come to the plate and hit or interview graded hitting and batting and play play. Play position you're going to have to probably gonna have to choose. But i think he was a unique situation and i think him being far blair. He said the only way. I'm coming that you'll allow me to do both. And so they were caught between a rock and a hard place because somebody. If the angels didn't do it someone else was going to allow him to do it. And he's shown because you know you you pitch every field day and he's a d. h. So you basically every day you know. How much would that zappin. And so. But i don't think you're gonna see all of a sudden these guys popping up wanting to be shohei. Otani is unbelievable. Skip the mere fact like he's about the mere fact that we're missing him and babe ruth kill you just. How special does your mania. He has power freakish that we have seen the longtime your job out for a japanese more player. He's already the single season leader and we're at the midway point. Yeah dickey lewis record. I face a thirty one thirty and he's already at thirty three bucks give. I think this was an anomaly. I don't think we're gonna see uprising. Up sprayed guys saying you know what i want bat and i wanna pitch in the major leagues. I don't believe that's going to happen. Okay i believe it should not be under an anomaly. Did you play high school based remember. Okay so i did. I was pretty good. I made all area after my senior year. But what i always saw in my years in high school baseball was the pitchers we faced were often the best hitters that we have to get out because they were the best athletes on the field. They chose to throw because they had the best arm but they also had many times the most power so. That's not an anomaly. And then when i went to vanderbilt we won the sec. All four years. I was there but our archrivals university of tennessee in the best hitter in the sec does for years was a kid. named rick. Honeycutt was also one of the best pitchers so he goes on to the big leagues and makes two all star teams and his the are champ in one thousand nine hundred eighty three because he could really pitch as and dodgers and rangers for a year but he became the dodgers pitching coach for many years up through twenty nineteen. My point is he. He could have done this but he wasn't a what you call a power hitter. Man he could hit for average. He was the sec batting champ. My senior year so my point is when you get to the big leagues are are thinking so prehistoric. They just say you have to choose wrote in japan at eighteen. He decided to play pro baseball in japan for a few years ago right away they're more open minded and they're like okay. We don't have these conventional wisdom that we dug in on it and they said sure because because he's a big he's almost six four and has natural gifted power and he can throw one hundred miles an hour. Why not but they think no. You're going to shortchange yourself one way or the other. What happened to babe ruth. He was great for the boston. Red sox and then when he got traded the yankees. They're like you got to stop. This is the best pitcher in baseball right. And then he became the best hitter of all time through that point right because the yankees said no our box office says we need you to hit the ball out of the park. Which is what he did. I'm just hoping the floodgates reopened for a lot of kids out there who at the high school level are dominating as hitters and pitchers. And i don't know why they can't keep on keep getting if you think about think about football. The best athletes used to play office agreeable a quarterback or there was something they were. They got to you what it'd be able to choose among defense beyond with dr. Dr could play. Both what is like what we really need you. The other side of the we'll give you a few reverses you passes. But i i think that's going to be the cake. You look at tampa. They don't let the pitcher go pants things. A lot of it used to be pitches. Two hundred fifty hundred and sixty pitches and a specialist. I agree right guy. Okay you got coming. From the seventy got closer we gary cole- two hundred twenty pitch a complete game to be commonplace. Yep okay so can't wait until tonight. Because i get to watch this young man pitch and leadoff not allow probably just watch them all over really rupert last night to pete alonso was great to watch so tonight game seven pm eastern on fox and when you watch shohei ohtani. He's just playing with this joy. You can't look away because he's making it look easy. We know it's not thirty. Three home runs. I just can't get enough of him. I cannot get enough of what he's doing. And i cannot wait on display on fox tonight. We're going to get to the cowboys. Now we're gonna see them plenty on fox this season as well but heading into his second year with the cowboys. Mike mccarthy will be eager to put a six and ten season in his rear view mirror dak prescott back under center which will take some added pressure away as bill appear on hard knocks. This will be dallas's third appearance on the hit. Show that former cowboys coach. Dave campo thinks the show is invasive though and in unnecessary hurdle for mccarthy as he looks to right. This shit shannon do agree with campo here. No there's just no excuse for why they are not going to be good to have nothing to do with this. It's not gonna i. It's hard for me to imagine that because their cameras there everyday feeling everything anyway. But all of a sudden it affects your block in tackling throwing your catching. That's not gonna have anything to hard. Not so it's not going to be the reason. The cowboys finished eight nine or nine eight. That won't be the reason and don't make excuses. I understand but you have to understand. Skipped jerry always put this in front of winning. Jerry always wanted more less than lombardi trophies. I a problem with it. I just see from what is so. I'm not here to make no excuses about well. If they don't be vista the happen is because of hard knocks. No twelve to the past have heart ducks team. That approved either improved or equal to win total from the previous year. Sixteenth made the playoffs. We didn't want the bengals the nine and thirteen jazz in two thousand ten to fifteen to twenty twenty rail so it can't be the play off being a.

"Eda's for mentioned this week. It's momo in ireland ramona shelburne. Nice enough to sit in for me. I'm gonna growl again. Why not and close. The three o'clock growl and remote. I mentioned i was at a party over the weekend. And the host of this party bought the ufc fight and thank you for supporting our company. Appreciate that so yeah on espn plus so say it again on espn plus wherever you can find those streaming services. Thank you sad. How's that the okay. So the whole under cards. Greg hardy the former teahouse cub. We got knocked out like ten seconds in. But and i'm irish. So i've always kind of rooted for conor mcgregor. Great showman yeah is but order to be a showman to to to run your mouth like he runs his mouth. You have to be able to back it up in the ring. And this was very evident from the beginning that daniel poi- was gonna kick his but he ended up breaking his ankle and looked horrible to that was really hard to watch but i never thought connor was at one point. Connor had him in a headlock. I thought maybe he could choke them out. No i mean. I don't i never got the feeling it was worried. Should these fought three times now and as soon as fighting. He needs stop. That's what but he's not a legitimate fighter anymore. I mean he's still good but to be to fight it this class and this level like one. I don't want to see somebody get hurt like that. That look really painful. And he. he's shown he can. He can take a punch but conor mcgregor in his prime. So i was in new york when he won at the first. Ufc fight that was in madison square garden. I think it was. You've see to twenty s. You lose what count it was. He was such an amazing showman and he won. It was just a great fight to like when he would win. It was the little like ronda. Rousey like she used to win fifteen seconds. She was awesome And connor would come out and he would you know he was just pinpoint in his marksmanship. Right like you would just he. His striking was just like he'd be dancing around that all of a sudden he would see a little opening in poon. Getting right in fa-. I mean he was just fantastic to watch and he could talk as much as you wanted because he would win. But you know he's he's kinda done with that like. I don't think you have a very long shelf life in the ufc usually It's a really hard sport. The the four inch clubs like man. People get really messed up. You get messed up longtime if yeah and i got the impression he couldn't fight back in certain points and like the broken ankle was like hard to watch like you know he did the fight with floyd and he's done some exhibition e kind of things. He's made a lot of money he doesn't need to keep doing this. And and i would say this like somebody who chronicled. Ronda rousey ends end of her career. Pretty free closely I don't know if you how about you follow her now. She's off raising cattle and stuff on browse acres. Right like they're they're having their he's about to. She's she's very pregnant right now very pregnant with her first child and good for her man. She always used to say like when i'm done i'm done. I'm get out i'm going to go live on a chicken ranch and you know do farmer things. And that's what she's doing like she's happy. She's about to have a kid she's doing that. She's still kind of online a little bit with these youtube videos. But i would watch her and she had so many injuries like she she. Her knees were basically bone on bone. she got knocked out on the ring. Yeah and then. She went and did wrestling. And you know what's what about wrestling. She can come back and be a wrestler. She totally not get hurt doing that. Maybe a little bit but you know at some point you kind of say how. How long do you want to get punched in the face like that money. He doesn't fight anymore all right. So the major league baseball homerun derby is tonight. This really is a forty eight hour. Coronation of shohei ohtani as the biggest attraction the game otani place in the angels has been unbelievable. He leads the major leagues in home runs. They are going to basically use the all star game tomorrow night to show him off tonight. As the number one seed in the homerun derby this is in coors field in colorado. The last time the all star game was of course field mason. And i went to it. And you're the hairston their balls out of the park. He's probably gonna put on a big show tonight and even if he doesn't people be anxious to trevor story. By the way. I think trevor story is gonna win. Because he's the hometown guy he's the he's the colorado rockies guys in homerun derby right. Well there's a bunch of of like kind of cool stories that are that are gray. Mancini will is my favorite one. Yeah trey man. Seaney almost died last year. He basically was he was playing for the orioles and his he wasn't feeling great and he had his blood tested in his iron was really low and they tested him again and it was even lower and they'd be determined to a series of tests that he had a colon cancer stage. Three two wasn't right and he basically had to go through. Full chemo radiation. All of it. And he worked his way back. He missed all of last season. And this season he's been tearing the cover up the ball and tonight as in the homerun derby. So here's who's in it. Shohei ohtani joey. Gallo last year's winner pete alonzo trevor. Story juan soto matt olsen from the as trae mancini in salvador perez from the from the royals in otani will be the the main reason people tune in. You can listen to it on our sister station. Amil evan ten you can watch it on. Espn and then tomorrow night. We got the game. Otani is gonna hit leadoff and start as the starting pitcher for the american league and because he is the biggest drawn the game. He's being talked about all over on a lot of the debate.

Here's what stephen said about otani this morning on. I take crab tool.
" ohtani" Discussed on The Odd Couple with Chris Broussard & Rob Parker
"I thought so fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. It's time for the pocket. Protector century the analytic numbers. You need to know well. Maybe anthony masterson as his name. Bs analytics is his game. What do you got for me anthony. I know people keep talking about shohei otani. But i really don't think we can talk enough about what he's doing the season it's made even more crazy by comparing him to his peers. Let's pitching surpise. Great obviously to fifty eight. Era fifth in the american league. Better than garrett. Cole and tyler glass now. His strikeout percentage of thirty three point one percent also fifth better than lucas g lido opponents hitting one eighty eight autumn. Better than yu darvish including an absurd. Oh eighty-six against his splitter as a hitter easily not only to show. Hey lead all of baseball extra-base hits he's only behind vladi junior and fernando. Todd s- junior opie and slugging. Going deeper he leads the league in barrels and barrel rate and his average exit velocities only behind guys like judge vladi a kunia and machado while his heart hit percentage. The number of it's above ninety five miles. An hour is only behind judge. But that's not all. He's one of only three players this season with twenty homers and ten steals joining totti's and kunia and he's a sprint speed of twenty eight point nine feet per second. Anything above thirty is considered a lead faster than guys like what airfield cedric mullins and trevor story. Plus he'll be the first japanese-born player and first pitcher in the homerun derby in a few weeks in colorado. He's a unicorn he's captain of the varsity team. He's literally doing all money into more money. Now it's time for betting on the basis with dave guess guy love that money that money rob. We got some interesting games over the weekend. Fridays menu looks awfully good dodgers or in dc against the nationals padres and phillies from philadelphia. And the mets and the yankees. I know new york. The mets that is they've been led by jacob degrom. He's not pitching in this ball. Game on friday they're going up against garrett cole though they been laboring as the late yankees only a couple games over five hundred. I'm not gonna touch them at all this weekend series games that will be looking at first off. I'm looking at the angels and orioles. That game is in anaheim. I'm taking the angels in this one. Shohei ohtani continues to swing a red hot bat on taking the team in that affair. Taking the giants there in arizona it gets the diamondbacks. Alex will be thrown for san francisco in that context. And i'm also taking the chicago white sox. They're on the road against your lowly detroit tigers lance. Lynn is on the bump seven three this season. Era two oh six. I'm taking the white sox and the victory in that one as well pay cash. It's time for trash. Talk twitter wing with your chance to trash anyone or anything in major league baseball. This week's trash comes from the bronx. Da ro annex from 'em brown at pro meal one six one and he is not happy with google gate and he tweeted me. This the yanks got scammed by garrett cole for three hundred twenty four million dollars no sticky stuff. Now he's back to who he was in pittsburgh and i'm pissed if you wanna have your trash on the podcast. Hit me up all my twitter at rob parker f s one. When rob was a newspaper columnist he lived by this motto. If i'm writing i'm rippin. Let's bring in a writer. Broadcaster older new i. Now let's welcome to the program brandon. Carr who is a content reporter for mlb bro dot com and. He has a piece on the website today. July first of course is bobby bo. Nia day brandon. Welcome to the podcast and tell us for all the people who don't know why today is bobbi baena day. Could they say it's a special day especially people of color for outsmarting a million getting one over on the man so bobby bruyneel Back in nineteen ninety nine. He was old. I'm gonna say almost six million dollars. But due to the mets being involved with bernie madoff find schemes. They didn't have the money to pay them so basics like oh man we just work a deal get you away from us man you over one point. Two million dollars Starting in twenty eleven for twenty four years and we give you eight percent interest rate or whatever so they use thinking you know the cost on price inflation or whatever may be down. I mean i'd be up or whatever so it's like a gamble and he's like you know what i think they're doing. Whatever long story short how. He's one of the mets are highest. Paid player still. He hasn't played baseball for the nineteen ninety nine. So it's a gorgeous day for black baseball players. It is crazy that the mets could make a deal brandon where they owe somebody five point nine million and instead from twenty eleven to twenty thirty five. I mean this is twenty twenty one. He still has fourteen years and on july first year. It's going to get one point nine million dollars a year. I who who in the world could have come up with this idea when you when you do your research and you were writing your story about this. Did you scratch your head and say how did this happen or give all products to say about it here but which is agent. I think his name was like a demon gobert. and hopefully. that's his name and He he had coding office and he was just working out in the negotions. Whatever with the organization he was like you know what compensated with here and he was down for the for payments. And at the time you know it was it's not really new for players of that magnitude and a half of furry payments. But like i said he was like you know what i'll take it. It is what it is. I have the money for the future. Honey right now has some money. When i'm old man and like i said this can't you're rich and he looked like agendas right now. So you gotta give it to him and give two days and there's no doubt about it. I may not see bobby boondi. Every so often at all star games and see him around always has a big smile on his face and for good reason because anybody who could broker a deal like this and and still have another eleven years to go is pretty amazing but thanks for that piece on. Mlb bro dot com. Check out brandon. Cars work on the site and brandon. Thanks for joining the podcast. We appreciate it. Sits jones in for baseball fans take on the game..
" ohtani" Discussed on Strong Opinion Sports
"I feel like a run into nonsense and it's heartbreaking. I feel like you know, you have a friend that you you love them but your interests diverge and you go different paths in life and not grow apart and like you miss that person, but even if you hang out with that person, now it's not going to be the same as it used to be because they've changed and you've changed. That's how I feel about Major League Baseball. Like I said, it's it's not what I want it to be, and I'm a different person and I don't stand for nonsense and tolerating bull crap. I just can't, I can't do it. I can't do the unwritten rules. I do a lot of the weird stuff that you can't celebrate. You can't enjoy a home run by hate that stuff and to me, I got a lot of entertainment options available to me. I would rather watch wistfully, like football league's the American wiffle Association. That's my friends. Do it up. North north of Seattle. It's really fun. I enjoy it so much and it's fun. It's not, it's not a drag. There's no discouraging home runs. There's no weird rules that aren't actually in the rule book because if it wasn't a robot, could be embarrassing. And that that to me, that that's my frustration with major league baseball. Now, how about a good thing? How about? I want to say something positive about Major League Baseball? I think it's possible especially with the audience of this show and this podcast we just mainly football some racing fans cuz I like I got a weird people love football and former the one it's a weird group of humans that follow the show like very opposite people that somehow come together. Got a lot of Europeans. Listen to this show to Germany, what's up? Okay now so if you don't know a lot about baseball you might not know about this. I want to tell you about Shuhei. Sorry shohei Shuhei I knew a guy named Shuhei. Who spelled his name. Exactly like shohei ohtani spells his name I knew him at Shuhei. He went by that all through elementary school but this guy's name is shohei shohei. Ohtani He's currently dominating two very, very different parts of baseball pitching and batting and he plays on an American League team, the LA Angels, and get that in the American League pitchers. Do not have to bet because pitchers historically are bad at batting in the National League. They have to bat and it's kind of just a wasted, a bad almost every game. Now case you get a picture of hit something or home round or whatever, but in the American League you don't have pitchers bat you have designated hitters who are better at batting. And usually there like an old dude who can't run very well but you can still hit for power or something. Like there's a reason why your designated hitter and not playing second base. It's cuz you probably have a debate in school but you can still hit a baseball. And pictures traditionally partially because, you know, if you're a pitcher you're so specialized and you're so focused on this. One thing, you're always training for pitching ain't trading for batting and hitting home runs and stuff. So.
" ohtani" Discussed on Fantasy Focus Baseball
"Get ready tristen. And he thought you're you're probably a little bit more low key than you were last Thursday night with lots of. Lots of. Leap. No meat sweats for us. I didn't have them anyway. But you didn't take on my Claes challenge with that huge plate of barbecued meat that you know, I most of it. He and I are definitely breezed faster than you did quite well at it though. Well, no, one told you to eat the plate to okay, I'm just saying like that. You're only supposed to eat the food on the plate. But the actual plate is not like. But that's where the vitamins are. The venom. All right on today's show. Let's get right to it. Here's the bus. All right. Let's lead with Shohei Ohtani because that could happen before our next show where he gets activated off the injure list. I lead my blog entry with that. And I wanna get your take here. Whether it's Tuesday Wednesday. Who knows what day the do face a bunch of lefties this week Otani should be tuned where where do you welcome? Like, you're the ranking guy where are you going to rank Otani among hitters Z top hundred hitter for you probably is. Yeah, I'm not the only rancor here. Come on. You gotta go with people could find regular game. So like, yeah, it's it's considered. Yeah. The traditionally the head categories. And I gotta get an update in that today. So look for that in a little while you're right about the three lefty starters, and the and the main reason that that's relevant is just that. I do think initially they will mix and match them into the lineup. I don't think he's going to be thrown an every day. But I do think that hundred that top hundred among haters, not overall is fair. I think he's definitely got that kind of power. I think he's got a underrated amount of speed. That's another thing that I don't think people give him credit for that. He can steal a few bases. And he's not a drain on your batting average. No. I mean as long as these he should be facing only right handed pitching. He should be a platoon pools has been unbelievably terrible against Rhianna pitching. Although Justin bour been terrible too. So I don't really know what Brad was going to do with it, bats. But Otani win he plays should that third right behind my trout, which is about the best spot in the lineup. You can have all an any team. Really? If you think about I mean, Brian goo look at his numbers. Acting pricey protecting with air quotes acting trout in the order the bottom line is. I was a little surprised Kotani stole vailable and more than twenty percent of ESPN standard leagues. Even appoints. He'll.
