I took my son to the game on Tuesday night. Just a father and son watching the game. He’s learning the game through Ohtani. He knows when Ohtani is due up to bat, he knows we have to get three outs so we can bat. He has absolutely no idea just how great Ohtani is. My son is 5 and Ohtani is his favorite player.
And all Ohtani did was have one of the best individual games in MLB history.
That is ridiculous to link. If somebody had asked me at any point in my life up to the last three years if it was even possible I would have said “no” without hesitation.
I can keep linking the insanity.
And it goes beyond bombs and K’s.
And just to put them all into one table.
I talk all the time. So much so that I even write as a hobby. Yet I’m at a loss for words when it comes to Ohtani.
With Shohei Ohtani, baseball truly feels limitless. Enjoy that long form with your coffee.
In the things that really do matter, the Angels are great when it comes to CHOC. Putting smiles on sick kids faces is priceless and they continued to do so this week. These two going above and beyond and shaving their heads deserves special mention.
Speaking of medical care, Anthony Rendon is getting close to coming back and there’s a host of other Angels injury news here.
One tradition the Angels have abandoned is lighting up the halo on the Big A only after a win. When and why did they stop that?
And congratulations Eduardo Escobar on becoming a United States citizen.
From around the league:
A guy who has been caught cheating twice this year threw a perfect game. Pardon me while I remain skeptic. Even if he did do it legitimately, he’s still a woman beater who shouldn’t be in the league.
But the cheating woman beater plays for the Yankees so his accomplishment is to be celebrated with no mention of his cheating or character.
Arte Moreno is famous for never giving in and cutting his losses. Will Steve Cohen be the same?
The home run derby is fun to watch. And Vladdy Jr. will be in it again.
Enjoy your pre holiday weekend and link what I missed.
