Best player in the league.

A one-trick show pony...

Guy has hit almost 23 more homers than I ever have in the majors.

I watched it yesterday and today. I think his accomplishments are capturing the attention of everyone in Japan as well as in North America. So many articles about him start with "this hasn't been done in 100 years, since Babe Ruth", so it is good for American baseball which needs a positive story to talk about - to move away from cheating scandals, doctored baseballs, interminable games, low batting averages and far too many strikeouts. The sad thing is that he will probably have no season in 2022 due to the likely player's strike and lockout.

@3R--that is an awfully strange thing to say about a legit TWO way stud.

@Sal--everyone had steep pay cuts for the 60 game season in 2020, esp. the ones who opted out. Do you think there is an appetite for a strike related to the pandemic?

3RENSHO, surely a two-trick show pony.

So, which team do you support?
