How can you have the two best players in the MLB and still suck?  That's pretty amazing.  I'm seriously curious what their downfall is.

Teams are made of 25 people, not two?

I'm beginning to believe this Ohtani person is pretty good at baseball.

Ohtani struck out a career-high 13 over eight dominant innings of two-hit ball, and the American League MVP also reached base three times in Los Angeles' 5-0 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday.

There can't be many games where the pitcher got on base more than the entire team the entire game.

Especially in the modern DH times.

Can't have Ohtani pitch every game, hell, you need 2-3 pitchers for a single game. Sometimes more!

I'd like to get to home with Ohtani, but I know he'd vastly prefer the strikeout.

26 these days, but no more than 13 pitchers, which makes tons of sense in a season without a full spring training and when starters are pitching fewer innings than ever.

/may have got a bit sidetracked there

And to think, Tom Seaver was considered a great hitting pitcher because hit 12 home runs in his career.

Last season, they put him on waivers and released him.  The Dodgers picked him up (for basically free), and he did quite well against left handed pitchers (not so much against righties).  I wish he stayed, but looks like he wanted to play his final season back at St. Louis.
