Re: MLB 2018: Shohei Ohtani Appreciation Thread

So who is buying the New York Mets and Los Angeles Angels? There's usually a couple of teams every year that surprise. Are these the two?

I don't pay attention to wins and losses until around mid May or so.

I think the Angels are good. I won't be that surprised if the Mets are good because their lineup isn't unbelievably bad and they have two aces with a decent bullpen.

I've been a believer in the Angels since they acquired/signed Justin Upton. I can't see them not winning a Wild Card spot.

Angels still have no pitching, they'll get rocked in the playoffs even if they make it.

Re: MLB 2018: Shohei Ohtani Appreciation Thread

This is how the Astros walked off the Padres... LOL HOSMER...



@SelinaKyle @CamillePunk @MillionDollarProns @scrilla @FitChi @savior BeeRad™ @TKOK @Dub

WENT TO TODAY'S GIANTS GAME AND GOT MY WILLIE MAYS BOBBLEHEAD AND LIFE WAS ALREADY GOOD BUT THEN ANDREW MCCUTCHEN WENT 6-7 WITH A STOLEN BASE AND HE WENT TO BATTLE AT THE END OF THE GAME WITH WILMER FONT IN A 12-PITCH DUEL WHICH SAW MVMCCLUTCH HIT THE 3-RUN DINGER TO TAKE THE GIANTS OVER THE TOP OF THE 1-RUN DEFICIT GOING INTO THAT HALF-INNING AFTER THE DODGERS FINALLY SCORED A RUN AFTER THE GAME BEING DEADLOCKED AT 4-4 FOR MANY HOURS AND IT WAS SUBLIME!

THE GIANTS BULLPEN WAS ACTUALLY PHENOMENAL! IT WAS A SURREAL EXPERIENCE TO SEE THIS!



HIT A 2-RUN HOME RUN EARLY ON IN THE GAME ABOUT SIX HOURS AGO BUT THIS WAS ULTIMATELY THE GAME OF ANDREW MCCLUTCHEN, BAPTISED TODAY TRULY AS NEW SAN FRANCISCO GIANT! AFTER GOING 2-24, HE WENT 6-7 TODAY, RAISING HIS BATTING AVERAGE FROM .083 TO .258 AND HIS wRC+ ROSE 124 POINTS AFTER THE MOST BAD-ASS AT-BAT IN THE HISTORY OF BAD-ASS AT-BATS!

Wilmer Font was pitching sans serif for the Dodgers but how many times new roamin' pitchers would invade the game? In the end it was comic, sans tragedy for the Giants that Font had less-than-fantastic stuff tonight, though his lollipop curveball remains a bit maddening.

MCCLUTCHEN!

LOL DODGERS







GIANTS

Re: MLB 2018: Shohei Ohtani Appreciation Thread

Gerrit Cole had back to back 11 K no run games so far. Astros pitching coaches are wizards. This isn't coming out of nowhere since Cole has been a highly regarded talent for some time (and has had at least one good season). It just looks like the Astros are able to unlock that potential. Of course it's just two games, but this is obviously a great sign and if Cole is a legit ace then I'm not sure how they lose a 7 game series.


lol Hosmer sure, but that is such a Padre way to lose a game too.

Yankees now 5-5 to start the season (and 3rd in the AL East).

Damn Orioles.

Re: MLB 2018: Shohei Ohtani Appreciation Thread

That Yadi Molina fight was interesting today. Ohtani is fun to watch. White Sox suck. Moncada is disappointing. I know it's cold, but c'mon my Cuban brother. Let's do something. If you're going to hit .230 and sacrifice contact, let's at least get some counting stats and power.

He's going to have to adjust that ridiculous closed stance he's working with.

Swing and miss has plagued Stanton in the past, so this isn't new. Don't worry, he'll almost assuredly figure it out, make adjustments and he'll hit 20 HR in a month.


That Shohei Sunday start was something. I don't think the A's lineup is actually that bad. It's not one of the better lineups of course, but it's better than it has been since they traded Donaldson. Aside from Bryce Harper, the Angels might have the two best baseballs players in the game.
