“Isn’t there something like ‘Used Ohtani’ who can’t rate miracles correctly?”
Angels pitcher Shohei Otani hit the 34th 2-run homer for the first time in three games against the Astros on the 11th (Japan time 12th). Ohtani has been active this season with 12 wins and 34 homers, but as the season draws to a close, attention also turns to the outcome of the “MVP race” with Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge.
Although there are voices recommending both Otani and Judge, Ken Rosenthal, a reporter for sports outlet ‘The Athletic’, who is known for giving plenty of scoops, seems to recommend Otani. “I think he deserves to be a judge, but what worries me is that there’s a kind of ‘Ohtani familiarity’ that doesn’t appreciate the miracle of what he’s doing,” he said. he declared.
The MVP battle which was discussed during the Twins vs Guardians match which aired on US media “FOX Sports” on the 10th (11th). Legendary pitcher John Smoltz, who won the Cy Young Award in 1996, won 213 major league titles and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2015, claims to be a 100% judge. I can’t complain about that.
Ohtani has 12 wins as a pitcher and over 30 homers as a hitter. “We’re also talking about the second season in both directions in major league history,” Rosenthal said. Excellent,” he said.
Last year he was unanimously voted the AL MVP, and this season he’s doing just as well. “I think he deserves to be a judge, but what worries me is that there is a kind of ‘knowledge of Ohtani’ who cannot appreciate the miracle of what he does” , said the journalist. become a “natural” air.
Aaron Goldsmith, who commented on the day, responded to Rosenthal’s assertion: “’Otani regular’ is a perfect phrase. You quickly get used to things you’ve never done before. ” in the mood of time. It seems the key to Otani’s MVP award for the second year in a row is that his dual wielding exploits aren’t taken for granted and he is properly rated.
