I believe, Ohtani steals bases by going into the bag feet first... Trout goes in head first.  I think the risk of injury appears greater going in head first.  I'm happy to see Trout not trying to steal bases.

trout seems to be hitting okay  . . . so far . . .

It doesn't matter to me.  It's not an argument that I care about.  Ohtani is just a special, special player.  That's enough for me.

If you ever call me and I say to you “hey, can I call you back? I’m watching a Pauline Shore movie right now and it’s hilarious”, that’s my signal to you that I’m being held captive or there’s a home

@Lou, can you work your magic and look up the threads when we first signed ohtani, and that first spring training?

I know when we first signed him, lots on here were excited, and I couldnt care less. Didnt think he was going to be anywhere near the hype. "More power than matsui, more speed than ichiro". Forgot what pitcher he was supposed to be. 

I didnt freak out his first spring though either, just because I wasnt excited anyway for him.

He cane out of nowhere and set the baseball world on fire. Eppler absolutely nailed that one.

And I know dipoto was PISSED....

Now i really hope the rumors were true, and ohtanis agent was playing one team against the other.

Dipo'doh!

Im still in wait and see mode. I really have a hard time thinking he'll be able to hit MLB pitching off the bat (no pun intended), especially part time. And we still dont know how good of a pitcher he will be.

To me, genius of it is the low risk. If he is at best a #3 pitcher, were still paying him less than that. There is ZERO downside here, a ton of upside, and worst case scenario doesnt hurt us.

Good job front office...

I nust spent the last 20 mins or so reading scouting articles on him. Pitching wise, sounds like there is a lot to be excited about.

The bat is up for debate....i wonder if he struggles, how long does the 2 way player thing last? If he doesnt hit anything special, but still "demands" to hit, it creates a roster problem, IMO.

Im sure for 2018, hes "the" DH. But I wonder if he doesnt hit enough, if that changes at all.
