No way he’s not the MVP. Even if he didn’t play another inning this season. 43 HRs, 93 RBIs, 22 steals, 9 wins, ERA below 3. Amazing season! And all for the bargain price of $3 million.

@Tony, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with using second-hand parts. Parts have a service life and if there’s still time it’s good to go. Engine components are a good example. All airlines buy used parts, it’s a safe and regulated industry.

Since she was likely killed on the 11th and her body wasn’t found until the 14th...check his movements over the weekend. Since he went there every day he certainly would have come by...unless he didn’t because he knew she was dead.

Posted in: American father and son plead guilty to helping Ghosn flee Japan See in context

No surprise that they’ve pled guilty, since they’ve never denied what they did. However, I’d be satisfied with a suspended sentence/time served in return for throwing the Ghosn family under the bus. Ghosn lied about his family’s involvement. His wife sought out the Taylor’s. Daughter met with them before the escape. Son-in-law wired the money. And what do the Taylor’s know about Koseman? I never believed his story that his family was threatened. Hard to believe his story when over $200K was deposited into his bank account. He’s the only one of the conspirators that I’d like to see locked up.

Posted in: Ohtani delivers on mound, at plate as Angels top Diamondbacks 6-5 See in context

Fact is, he left the game with the lead and the bullpen let him down. Two controversial balks and an inconsistent strike zone let the D’backs score two runs without a hit in his last inning. Joe Maddon has been great for Ohtani, keeping him in the game longer and pitching through difficulties. The writers like to mention the 100mph fastball, but that’s never been his most effective pitch. His breaking balls are his payoff pitch, and every bit as good as Tanaka’s. Only downside is that he strikes out a lot, more K’s than hits, and usually on breaking balls. With his quick bat, pretty hard to get a fastball by him. If he can stay off the DL, he’s going to put up some monster numbers.

@samurai, is it illegal to ride on the sidewalk in Osaka? That’s the norm in Aichi. And apparently it appeared intentional, enough that a witness contacted the police.

At the time she jumped into the taxi, was the guy breaking any laws? If someone jumps into my taxi I’m going to shove them out...male or female.
