7 min read

Shohei Ohtani (1-for-2, 2 RBIs, hitting .301) hit his twenty second homer to tie for the MLB lead, and he tossed 6 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.29, vs. the Rangers in Texas, one MLB’s greatest groups, and the Win. Are there sufficient superlatives for Ohtani? Let’s attempt, he’s the very best baseball participant ever. Good place to begin. It’s unfair to check completely different eras, as a result of issues had been completely different 100 years in the past when Babe performed. Issues had been completely different 20 years in the past when Bonds was in his heyday. Talking of which, apart from these two, there was Say Hey, there was Hammerin’, there was–Rickey is aware of you’re not forgetting Rickey–There was Rickey! None wanted their full identify talked about. You knew who I meant. None pitched in addition to Ohtani is pitching. Babe’s the one one to even give {that a} go, and we all know when he was an elite hitter, he wasn’t additionally a pitcher. Ohtani despatched a ball 443 ft the alternative manner final evening with ease, has hit six homers in seven video games, and has 105 Ks in 82 IP, which is third in strikeouts. Absurd. There aren’t any superlatives. He’s the superlative. Superlative Ohtani. Anyway, right here’s what else I noticed yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Zach Neto – Hit the IL with an indirect pressure. All the things I contact is cursed. Ought to be Luis Rengifo’s job, which implies Phil Nevin, the most important fool in Idiotsville, will go to the .000-hitting Andrew Velazquez. Okay, unfair. He’s solely hitting .000 as a result of he was simply known as up. He’s projected to hit .190.

Chad Wallach – 1-for-4 and his sixth homer, and 2nd homer in 4 video games, and he completely received’t be on this afternoon’s Purchase column, however he has been sizzling, and enjoying over Thaiss, who has simply disappeared.

Mickey Moniak – 3-for-4, 2 RBIs and his sixth homer, hitting .319. Moniak by no means stopped hitting; Nevin simply stopped enjoying him. Ya know, to make clear.

Carlos Estevez – 0 IP, 1 ER, 3 walks, ERA at 1.80, however was bailed out by Jacob Webb (1 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 2.03, 1st save). It doesn’t actually make any logical sense, but when a workforce nonetheless wins, I believe struggling closers are usually ignored a bit extra, i.e., so long as Estevez is wholesome, he’s advantageous.

Pete Fairbanks – 1 IP, 0 ER, and his sixth save, ERA at 1.42, as he was activated from the IL. Enjoyable reality! He’s not associated to Payday Sloan.

Taj Bradley – 4 1/3 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 4.19. He additionally had a career-high 11 strikeouts, however clearly nobody instructed him the pitfalls of turning to 11.

Manuel Margot – 1-for-4 and his third homer. Spraypainting “MAR” on the facet of my automobile so individuals can say, “Have a look at that Margot.” All about committing to the bit.

Luke Raley – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his twelfth homer. You higher imagine he returns to the Purchase column later in the present day, after taking a short sabbatical. He’s now a prime 100 participant, and he’s rostered in, like, 12% of leagues, relying on whose rostering numbers you imagine. Rostering feels like somebody with a Southern drawl speaking about fantasy baseball. “Y’all do this rostering baseball?” “Rotisserie?” “Did I say Robespierre, boy?”

Byron Buxton – 0-for-4 as he was activated from the IL. Kevin from ESPN’s Get Him In Your Lineup Division stated, “To up my productiveness, I’m sporting a diaper.”

Donovan Solano – 1-for-2, 3 RBIs and his 2nd homer. Was so shut to creating Solano a batty name final evening, however I made a decision I didn’t need to look as determined as I used to be. I confirmed me!

Sonny Grey – 4 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 2.37. He’s actually dragging out this regression. Simply go forward and do a kind of 7 ER in 2 IP jobbers and be finished with it.

A.J. Smith-Shawver – 5 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 6 hits, 1 stroll, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.03. His identify is sneaky inconceivable to spell. Simply go by ASS, as Sir Combine-A-Lot would’ve wished it. Like nobody stops for a second to contemplate what Sir Combine-A-Lot would need. Like that isn’t a regular factor for everybody. Any hoo! I nonetheless love ASS.

Jorge Alfaro – 0-for-4 as he was known as up by the Rockies. Ooh! Who is that this attractive, younger prospect? Seeing he was drafted in 2010, and he had a 16/16 in A Ball in 2013. Coloration me intrigued!

Elias Diaz – 1-for-4 and his seventh homer. Elias Sports activities Bureau stated, “My boy!”

Ezequiel Tovar – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his sixth homer, hitting .251. Was watching this recreation, and noticed Tovar homer, off my pitcher ASS, so wasn’t tremendous pleased, however my foremost takeaway was Tovar bought into one, crushed, and the ball nonetheless landed within the first row of the outfield seats, i.e., he’s not an influence man. I do know, nobody thinks he’s, however Cust kayin’.

Logan Allen – 3 IP, 5 ER, ERA at 3.95. Why do I really feel just like the Guards will simply create one other two starters within the Cleveland Beginning Pitcher Manufacturing facility and toss Bibee and Allen again to the minors? Wait, somebody by the identify, uh, Gavin Williams is ringing a bell. And never Josh.

Manny Machado – 2-for-5, 3 RBIs and his eighth homer, and 2nd homer in as many video games. Should you had been questioning if Machado would ever begin hitting once more, I’ve an affirmative along with your identify on it.

Jake Burger – 1-for-5 and his sixteenth homer, and third homer in two video games. He performed third as Yoan Moncada went to the IL yesterday. White Sox have had really two Burgers this yr at third — Jake and Nothing.

Eloy Jimenez – 1-for-5 and his seventh homer. Additionally, on this recreation, Luis Robert (1-for-4) hit his seventeenth homer, and Andrew Vaughn (1-for-5) hit his ninth homer. I don’t hear or see it talked about a lot, however about six years in the past Dodger Stadium went from a pitchers’ park to one of the crucial pleasant house run parks.

Dylan Stop – 5 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 4.31. Should you’ve seen the primary episode of the brand new Black Mirror, Joan Is Terrible, then enable me to color an image for you. Dylan Is Terrible and enjoying the a part of Dylan is Blake Snell. If that is gibberish, simply know that Stop is Snell, Snell is Stop, Finkle is Einhorn.

Aaron Nola – 6 2/3 IP, 4 ER, 7 baserunners, 9 Ks, ERA at 4.66. Ya know what’s humorous that’s not humorous? By and enormous, the worst pitchers I’ve are the primary ones I drafted. 2nd pitchers drafted? Largely advantageous. fifth pitchers drafted? Pretttttttay-pretttttttay good. 1st? Canine crap.

Bryson Stott – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his seventh homer. Went to take a look at Stott on the Participant Rater, and I by accident noticed he’s been nearly 25 spots higher in worth than Tommy Edman, and Trea Turner. *smile so massive and pretend that my creased eyes start to tear up*

Ketel Marte – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his tenth homer. I’ll let you know precisely what sort of season Ketel is having. He’s largely ignored in shallower leagues, however subsequent preseason individuals will notice he had a greater season than they realized, and they’ll draft him, then he could have one of many worst 2024 seasons recognized to man.

Cody Bellinger – 1-fro-3, 1 run, 1 RBI as he was activated. In a corresponding transfer, Matt Mervis was despatched to Triple-A, due to course he was. Pay attention, Mervis had nearly a month to play within the majors. At 25 years of age, how a lot time do you count on a workforce headed for 4th place of their division to provide him? They’ve to hold Miles Masturbatori, Trey Mancini and three catchers.

Marcus Stroman – 6 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.45. On a private stage, since I don’t roster him anyplace, I wouldn’t thoughts seeing some regression. With that stated, his underlying numbers aren’t dangerous.

MacKenzie Gore – 5 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 7 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 3.74 vs. Cristian Javier – 6 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 2.90. Had each of those guys going and, yo, the place’s the strikeouts?

Hunter Harvey – 1 IP, 1 ER, ERA at 3.34, and the blown save. I don’t hate transferring to Harvey because the nearer, and away from Finnegan, however that was one of many more odd managerial strikes. In that, it was good! That’s bizarre for managers. Gnats had been going nowhere and so they really went to the higher man? Extraordinary! I’d guess due to that they principally stick with Harvey; it’s nonetheless a little bit of a cut up.

Tyler Wells – 6 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 8 Ks, ERA at 3.20. Because it was a brief schedule day, did a lil’ check-in on Wells. Wells, Wells, Wells, guess what I discovered? *whispering actual loudly* A man who’s going to be a sleeper in so many locations subsequent yr he’s going to be overrated. Appears like the place Joe Ryan was this time final yr.

Adley Rutschman – 3-for-5 and his ninth homer. Noticed some Herb de Provence say one thing like, “You’re not going to imagine this, however Gunnar has a better SLG than Adley.” Yeah, and so does Santander and Austin Hays and Kevin Kiermaier, to call only a few from this recreation. You understand why? Adley Rutschman is nice for actual baseball, as a result of he’s a catcher. It doesn’t make him nice for fantasy. At the least not but. Perhaps he will get higher, however individuals have to shut off their actual baseball mind and solely activate their fantasy baseball mind. It’s all you want now. Sure, you possibly can even neglect which medicines your children are allergic to. It’s of no use to you now.

Austin Hays – 2-for-5, 2 runs and his eighth homer, hitting .306. In case you had been questioning (I do know you had been, however we’ll act coy), Hays is above Adley on the Participant Rater.

Danny Jansen – 3-for-4, and his seventh and eighth homer. Oh, you guessed it, Danny Jansen has a better slugging proportion than Adley too.

Yusei Kikuchi – 4 2/3 IP, 2 ER, ERA at 4.31. Streamonator didn’t like yesterday’s recreation for Kikuchi. Yusei? Sure, I do say. It doesn’t like his subsequent both.

Alek Manoah – Threw a simulated recreation, and I simulated a jerking off movement.
