It's great to see how skilled Japanese are at playing baseball. Ohtani's a true Duel Thread both on the mound and behind the plate.

I just hope that he doesn't exhaust or even destroy his throwing arm prematurely, as many, many other Japanese pitchers have done in the past upon finally reaching the Major Leagues, by continuing to chase short-term record breaking over long term endurance and career excellence.

Ganbare, Ohtani! But be careful, too, while you're at it!

Don't overwork him if he's still not ok.

Mister "Show-Time"-senshu will probably give up after the second inning, complaining of cramps, or muscle tightening, or Forearm tendinitis, or Valgus extension overload (a.k.a. 'Pitchers Elbow'), or Ulnar neuritis, Olecranon stress fracture, or SLAP tears, or etc....

I love him!
