If I hear the name Shohei Ohtani one more time I might consider pulling a Ken Giles on myself and just punching myself right in the face. Why does anyone care about Shohei Ohtani? Rookie of the year? More like a snoozefest. You know who matters in baseball right now? Mookie Betts, Aaron Judge, Jose Altuve, etc. Just because Ohtani hits and pitches doesn’t make him important.
Ohtani came into this season with a partially torn UCL. It was ignored. Then he was diagnosed with a torn UCL on September 5th. The moron kept playing with it. Now we find out that Ohtani will finally undergo Tommy John surgery….after the season. How dumb can this guy possibly be?
“I think it was the proper decision Shohei made to have surgery, and the sooner the better,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said on Tuesday.
SOONER THE BETTER? Apparently, Ohtani doesn’t know what that means. This idiot has been hitting with a torn UCL for a month. It’s one thing to play on it and contribute any way he can. It’s another thing to play on it when the Angels season has been over for months. Ohtani isn’t going to pitch at all in 2019 and parts of 2020. Ohtani cost himself about two months of time in 2020 when the Angels might be relevant but you know he had to go out and hit on a fourth-place team where his at-bats meant nothing.
There’s talk of Ohtani winning rookie of the year? What a joke. The guy made 10 starts and has 307 plate appearances at the moment. Miguel Andujar is going to have over 600 at bats by the time the season ends. Not to mention the fact that Andujar plays for a team that is going to make the playoffs and his contributions actually affected a winning environment. Let’s be honest, how can anyone even consider giving Ohtani any type of an award. Remember that time when Ohtani requested his own fans to be quiet? What a loser.
“USA Today reported that three women who were sitting behind the visitors’ dugout at Kauffman Stadium on Friday night for the Angels game against the Kansas City Royals were asked by stadium security to stop cheering so loudly during Shohei Ohtani’s at-bats. The message reportedly came from the Angels dugout. The women, who were Japanese exchange students, had no problem quieting down. And they didn’t just quiet down, they fell completely silent during Ohtani’s next at-bat.
After the game, a 5-4 for the Angels in which Ohtani went 2-for-4 with a double, Ohtani’s translator Ippei Mizuhara shed a little light on the situation to USA Today.”
“He heard it, he’s thankful for the cheers,’’ said Ippei Mizuhara, Ohtani’s interpreter, “but at the plate, he likes to focus and block out the noise.”
Ohtani, as is his way, focused on the effect it had on the team as a whole.
“I was aware of that,’’ Ohtani said, “but I wasn’t the one that asked for that. (The Angels) just did it so everyone could focus at the plate. I was thankful for that.”
Can you believe this clown? Who wants to build their team around a player who shits himself when fans cheer for him. Hey pal – if you like quiet maybe you should have taken up tennis or golf. This is baseball fans stand up and cheer the entire game (or at least games that matter, not Angels games) and that’s why we love the sport. Can you imagine what he would do if he played for the Yankees or Red Sox, or a team that matters? Would he vomit on the spot during every at bat?
Shohei Ohtani is such a loser and I’m so sick of people talking about him. You know who needs more press and plays on the same team? Why doesn’t Mike Trout get more love? That dude rocks and you know hits over .300 even if he had 5 shots before taking all of his at-bats. Rookie of the year for Ohtani? Nothing would be more of a joke since baseball’s hall of fame voting.
