Okay, last whine about this and then time to move on to having all hope crushed next year.

I congratulate Judge on his MVP and Verlander on his Cy Young.

I still do not think that whatever algorhythems are being uesd adequately capture just how jaw-droppingly good Otani is.

His #s were better than last year for almost every category. On a better team (and I know - we are dealing in actual results, not hypotheticals) he would have had by my count 4 more victories on the mound and (I didn't count so) many more offensive acheivements. He would have been a bigger challenger for both the MVP and the Cy Young.

OK, no more ranting. Let's hope he gets some support or a trade to a team that can properly utilize his amazing skills.

0 ( +2 / -2 )

I hope he has a good time with a wink wink and a nudge nudge...

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Said this before, but here goes.

I have seen Ohtani play a few times. He has a presence on the field that few other players do. Some other players that impressed me as much were Koufax, Drysdale, and Wilbur Stargell.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

I am a base ball scout I have no doubt that he is a great player yes he played two positions and he had good numbers, but their are legends who played the game did the same too bad they came way before statistics algorithms and computers with guys crunching numbers.

Ohtani's numbers last year have no relevance to this year's MVP. What is relevant is that this year Judge had far superior numbers in every major batting category than Ohtani, and had one of the best offensive seasons compared to other hitters in history.

9 teams in the AL had a better record than the Angels, and the Angels had a better record than 5 teams.

No need to rant--the voting was predictable and again.
