Homered in three straight games, has an OPS of 1.310 and a FIP of 3.65.

Is he Babe Ruth? Or better, cause Ruth couldn't throw 95?

Source: #Angels cautiously optimistic Shohei Ohtani will play again this season — at least as a hitter and possibly in both roles. @MLB @MLBNetwork

Scioscia said the Angels’ medical staff is “very optimistic” about Shohei Ohtani’s prognosis. Still two to three weeks from seeing whether PRP injection took hold. Ohtani is taking one-armed swings in batting cage.

TS: ohtani batting with one arm vs pujols

dammit, lock thread would be nice, esp as this is the one with the spelling that aligns with the way sportswriters here spell his name

I looked up the 2 other Japanese->MLB players with "大" as the first kanji in their family name and they were split on the romanization of O- vs. Oh-:

大家友和 - Tomokazu Ohka
大塚晶則 - Akinori Otsuka

I think I wrote in the other thread, we don't romanize the characters of Osaka city as "Ohsaka".

Shohei Ohtani’s season is over. He’s having knee surgery. Didn’t see that one coming. Justin Upton was the one who had an MRI on his knee. #Angels https://t.co/VTdRtIm6g5

He would not.

the dreaded infinite (or is it undefined?) ERA

fortunately there is Trout ... 3-run bomb on a 3-0 count

brooklyn suicide cult (Dr Morbius), Sunday, 26 July 2020 21:22 (one year ago) link

Struck out Springer leading off, so he has an ERA now.

1-2-3 first! It's 45.00.

I would never in a million years bet on Ohtani having the season he’s having right now.

Folks need to stop comparing Shohei Ohtani to Babe Ruth

Shohei Ohtani is the first Shohei Ohtani

Nobody’s ever done what he’s done in a half season, and it’s somehow still not getting enough media coverage https://t.co/cGY2CzpeUn

Andy K, Thursday, 8 July 2021 00:41 (three weeks ago) link

I agree that there aren't enough superlatives to describe what he's doing.

However, when it comes to Ohtani, there can never be enough comparisons to Babe Ruth. Babe f'n Ruth!!

NoTimeBeforeTime, Thursday, 8 July 2021 08:22 (three weeks ago) link

The need for the angels to make the playoffs only grows more and more urgent

Michael F Gill, Thursday, 8 July 2021 15:51 (three weeks ago) link

when is he a free agent? he will be an LA dodger or a boston red sock or a new york motherfucker in a couple years

Z_TBD (Karl Malone), Thursday, 8 July 2021 16:01 (three weeks ago) link

yea he seems like one of those players who could singlehandedly rescue the sport but having him play on the West Coast on a team that's 4th in their division sucks. crazy if the Angels miss the playoffs yet again despite having 2 generational talents on their team

frogbs, Thursday, 8 July 2021 16:49 (three weeks ago) link

it's a team sport

which consists 95% of moments of individual skill

Tracer Hand, Thursday, 8 July 2021 16:54 (three weeks ago) link

this is one of the hardest hit balls I've ever seen

fucking absurd man

k3vin k., Saturday, 10 July 2021 03:22 (three weeks ago) link

I don't know about you but I cannot see the ball post-impact with Ohtani's bat. I think he hit it so hard it disintegrated into fucking quarks.

Guayaquil (eephus!), Saturday, 10 July 2021 03:26 (three weeks ago) link

you can just briefly see it shoot straight up, it kind of looks like the 600-foot pop up from Major League

frogbs, Saturday, 10 July 2021 03:29 (three weeks ago) link

463 feet

k3vin k., Saturday, 10 July 2021 03:31 (three weeks ago) link

It feels like he should be more talked about.

Van Horn Street, Tuesday, 20 July 2021 02:20 (two weeks ago) link

Not here, but in media generally.

Van Horn Street, Tuesday, 20 July 2021 02:30 (two weeks ago) link

watching so many people discover Giannis even though he's been 2x MVP kinda tells me you need some playoff success for that to happen

frogbs, Tuesday, 20 July 2021 02:48 (two weeks ago) link

Thinking about DiMaggio's streak and Richard's 50 in 50, I have the feeling we used to have national conversations about specific athlete in a way we don't anymore? Maybe I'm wrong. But it seems conversations about sports are much more macro and/or focused on the past (how much can we still create content around Michael Jordan, I'm certain more people are aware of Jeter than of Trout or Ohtani).
