Posted in: Playoff-hungry Ohtani eyes MLB free agency: 'It sucks to lose' See in context

"Ruth was a fielder when he wasn't pitching. There was no DH in those days."

Yup, and there was no African American players either back then. Babe Ruth only played against white players. And he was a two way player only for one season.

Posted in: American football player says coach ordered him to 'crush' opposing quarterback See in context


The player committed serious fouls THREE times in the same game, and when he finally got ejected from the game, the coach did not yell at the player or anything, he was acting like everything is normal.

The coach just said " I will take responsibility for this" to other players as an explanation for the serious fouls.

The head-coach put pressure on the player, who is on a sport scholorship and have to obey pretty much everything the coach says.

well, the player went to apologize to the injured player, had a press conference and told all the details and answered questions, while the former head-coach has been hiding and avoiding the press, and answered "I will answer it later in a written statement" when asked whether he gave the instructions to injure the opposing QB.

I believe the player . The university and the former head-coach can and should have their press conference if they believe the player lied during the press conference. But they are just waiting for time to pass and hoping people will move on and forget about this.

If you actually listened to the player during the press conference, you can tell that there was no ambiguity. He was told he would never get play time in the future unless he injured the opposing QB.

The assistant coach talked to him again to make sure the player understood, they would not accept an excuse like "there was no chance".

The instruction from the coach was clearly to injure the QB, not tackle him hard, plain and simple.

Funny how there are very few comments when Ohtani performs well.

Where are all the JapanToday experts who said "They have figured him out" last time he pitched ?

Posted in: Ohtani gets blister; lasts only 2 innings as Red Sox beat Angels 10-1 See in context

Do you think he will be better against the Red Sux for the loss?

Of course he will adjust, as the opposing players will adjust to him.

Is it so hard to see him as he is ? He is a young talented player who has done what no other player has done in the last 99 years, hitting 3 home runs and 2 wins as a pitcher.

He is not a hall of famer, nor does he suck, he is somewhere in the middle like 99% of the players. One loss against one of the best teams does not mean he can't play in the MLB.

Anybody who says he is the best ever or they figured him out after one loss is an idiot

He hit 3 homeruns and won 2 games already, and he loses once and now "they have figured him out" ? LOL

yeah, sure.

During spring training: "he was good because he played in Japan, he is not a MLB level player"

After 2 weeks: "OMG, he is the real deal! , he is a legend in making"

After losing one game: "they figured him out, he was never good to begin with"

You armchair baseball analysts are so consistent
