    This is the thread where we talk about how good the two best baseball players in the world Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani and don’t make the playoffs.

    FS West is replaying the Ohtani press conference. I’m drunk and I can’t hear anything and it’s probably amazing.

    minus the one mistake that was a great outing

    threw a ton of strikes and the breaking ball looked good the second and third time thru the order

    i’m officially excited

    After years of that being a strong point, definitely have had a carousel of poor relievers the last couple seasons

    the breaking stuff wasn’t sharp the first time thru the order, but still good enough to get swings and misses

    he got away with it until olson crushed one

    he settled in well after that though

    Annoyed Shohei Ohtani Had Hoped U.S. Baseball Players Wouldn’t Be This Bad
    Yesterday 3:07pm
    SEE MORE: Vol 54 Issue 15
    [​IMG]

    ANAHEIM, CA—Frustrated with the level of play he has encountered during his first week of competition in the American major leagues, Japanese baseball phenom Shohei Ohtani told reporters Monday that he’d hoped American players wouldn’t be this bad. “When I decided to leave Japan to sign with the [Los Angeles] Angels, I thought I’d have to push myself to compete at the next level, but this has all been way too easy,” said the 23-year-old after a dominant performance on the mound and the batter’s box, adding that his new peers were hardly a step up from the lowly Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks. “At first, I thought the guys were just messing with me, but when I homered three times in three days and took a perfect game into the seventh inning the day after that, well...Turns out I’m just better than everyone else. This honestly wasn’t even worth the money.” Reporters confirmed Ohtani seemed bored and listless throughout the interview, answering questions while tossing 94 mile-per-hour warm-up pitches in the bullpen with his off hand.

    the pen will have to be addressed via trade

    all of them have the same issues (throwing fucking strikes)

    seems like they’re hoping middleton is the guy at the end but he’s basically fernando rodney with a different stupid look on his head
