And there's a lot more where that came from, and also just as entertaining, the hurt other teams endured in their failure....
And the there was the reaction to his Spring Training....
I post these as a reminder for all of us. Shohei Ohtani is an Angel, and didn't even give the Yanks a chance. Then he led the Mariners on to trade actual prospect us for international money, only to leave them high and dry.
The truth is, NONE OF US know who will sign where or how good or bad they'll be. Not Jon Paul Morosi, not Tim Brown, not Andy Behrens, not Ken Rosenthal. A year ago, the Angels weren't even a dark horse candidate for Ohtani. Then after they landed him, it was only because he's not as good as everyone thinks.
His rookie year was a campaign to shut everyone, including the experts....the heck up. And I'm grateful for it.
