I hope it's rust but he didn't record an out until his 31st pitch in the first inning today...ball definitely had little movement in the strike zone. Curious to see the betting next time out.

MLB bettors are sharp. Limited info on Ohtani's intrasquad outings in Anaheim, but local stuff said he struggled finding the strike zone. Money reflected that

True ...farm except for Adell is shit. Not sure why he's not starting in RF.
Jo will get a starting job soon...I think.

Trout will take his 'paid leave',...he could gone for weeks.

When that happens, no way Maddon cannot start the kid...right?

I suspect Ohtani will never log a 150 or more inning season in MLB. Too many walks, too high pitch counts.

I also will be betting him under (as a hitter) in props in the day after he pitches. He took a bit of a shot at home plate tonight.

Jose Abreu took Ohtani's legs out (unintentionally) when Ohtani was covering the plate on a strange play with two outs (dropped third strike, errant throw, two runs scored).

My UNDER 9.5 runs is blowing up.

The highly-touted White Sox bullpen has been shaky over the first four days of the season.

The HP ump not only squeezed Cease but Ohtani as well. If you lose your under, you got screwed by Moscoco. And what was Maddon doing? Vasgergian (sp?) and A-Rod kept saying " this is the last hitter Ohtani will face", and I wouldn't have disagreed. Ohtani was really losing his command and Maddon just sat on his hands. I thought I was watching the 2016 World Series.

I don't think I've ever seen (at the MLB level) TWO runs score on a dropped 3rd strike.

Lefty reliever Aaron Bummer of the White Sox declared before the season started that "the White Sox may not lose a game this year when leading after five innings."

The White Sox have already lost two games this young season when leading after seven innings.

Lol Ohtani was removed because of a pitch count, not injury after 4.2 innings.

Do you really need a pitch count for Japanese pitchers? They're usually done after 4 innings...5 innings is really stretching it.

On a unrelated note, interesting how new Sox closer Hendricks went from 93-94, to 97-98 after the age of 28.

Just in time for a lucrative 3 year deal.

I had not heard the divorce story.

Okay.

Reading about the divorce now.

The marriage lasted five months.

Vanessa Morgan was Michael Kopech's wife.

Vanessa said on her wedding day, ""Today, I vowed to love my best friend for a lifetime. I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him."

Yikes!

Another oldie, Casey Stengel managed until he was almost 75 (last year 1965). He overlapped with Mack from 1934 to 1950. Combined age 147 (in 1950).

im boycotting mlb for their faggoty left wing politics about ga voting. MLB makes you use an ID to pick up tickets in will call, but a fake civil rights dirtbag like hank aaron wants it moved out of ATL?

Maybe TLC can come out with a new show. Instead of 90 Day Fiance, it can be 150 Day Marriage.

I also read how Kopech had a PED suspension back when he was in the Red Sox organization.

If one is so crushed by divorce from a 5 month marriage, how is he going to handle high leverage situations on the mound?

Getting back to Ohtani, as visually impressive as he is, the results are ok. Below are his career numbers, which to this point are a grand total of 58 innings pitched. Not bad but not to the level of hype:

4.19 ERA
3.88 FIP
3.87 XFIP
5.43 BB/9

The ERA and advanced stats aren't bad, especially today, but until he gets his walk numbers down, he'll never reach his potential as a pitcher.

I liked your idea using Ohtani out of the bullpen.

Remember Eric Gagne?

He was a failed starter who threw hard but had control problems before the Dodgers tabbed him as a bullpen artist.
