Palau was allowing flights from Guam. All passengers had to be vaxed with a PCR before the flight. For the last couple months there have been several who tested positive, some as many as five days after arrival.

Posted in: One of a kind: Ohtani wins AP Male Athlete of Year award See in context

Fact is, the Angels sucked last year. Nine wins might not be anything to brag about, but it did lead the team. Unfortunately Ohtani was a frequent victim of poor run support or poor relief pitching. But that’s part of the game. ERA gives a more accurate account of a pitchers value than his win-loss record. And his 3.18 ERA was outstanding. A player who leads the team in most offensive and pitching categories is nothing short of amazing.

If they’re bragging about a 30 inch seat pitch that’s not a good selling point.

Good chance for Gold now that Lundby has pulled out. And hopefully a top five finish for Ito.

Only 15 wins and an ERA of nearly 5 in 70 starts is not a good thing. Had the opportunity to stay one more year for $13 mil and took a pass. He and Boras are pretty optimistic if they think a better offer is coming. Even the Angels won’t be stupid enough to sign this guy.

Ohtani is also a finalist for another award, the Silver Slugger Award, which is the best offensive player for each position. In Ohtani’s case, the best DH.

If he had stopped he could have been tended to along with those he hit. Must have been hoping for Olympic immunity from Herr Bachenfuhrer.

@Fighto, do you really think he’s going back to Mongolia? He has a Japanese wife, and acquired Japanese citizenship two years ago. And now, as a citizen, can become a stable master.

Ohtani needs to stay in the AL, where he can play everyday as a DH. Yankee stadium would be a boost to his stats…but please don’t go to New York!

Posted in: Ohtani hits consecutive triples as Angels rout Mariners 14-1 See in context

@cracaphat, when you look at Vlad’s teammates you can see why his numbers are so good. Yes, he’s a great hitter…with no speed. But the B-Jays will have 4 guys who will have more than 30 home runs and 100 RBIs. They are all getting good pitches because you can’t pitch around anyone. Ohtani is constantly being pitched around. His pitches-for-strikes is only 43 percent, 4th lowest in MLB. When Trout is back next year Ohtani will be getting more good pitches to hit. As a batter alone, not MVP numbers. But he’s a starting pitcher who has 45 homes runs and 24 steals. Being in first place isn’t everything, Cal Ripken was the MVP with the last place Orioles.

Defensively, Ichiro is one of the best right fielders I’ve ever seen, with an amazing arm. Offensively 450 of his 3000 hits were infield hits, sometimes not even advancing on-base runners. He was an excellent base runner…better than Ohtani. Ohtani’s 7 triples leads MLB. Ichiro once had 15 triples in a season. Ichiro was a good bunter, and Ohtani can also lay down a great drag bunt. Let’s see Guerrero Jr. do that. Guerrero has one triple and only four stolen bases. No doubt, Ohtani is the MVP,

In spite of many wanting to blame the local officials, it was still the mother that left her son alone with this guy. Even her friends have to be asking…what the heck was she thinking?!

Ohtani’s only batting around .210 since the all star break, but with no protection in the order they’ve been pitching around him. Pitches for strikes against him is only 43 percent, 4th lowest in MLB. When Trout’s back next season his average will improve 40 points.
