Trout likes playing in the laid back So Cal atmosphere. He would not enjoy playing in the AL East at all.

Looking at the standings and wild card list here's what I see:

Yankees, scored 562 runs, won 76 games. Gave up 506 runs.
Angels, scored 586 runs, won 63 games. Gave up 658 runs.

Angels have scored enough runs but the pitching has given up way too many runs. Hitting isn't the problem, pitching is.

Yankees have 4th best ERA of 3.16
Angels have 5th worst ERA of 4.78

Strikeouts gotten by pitching staff.
Yankees 1216
Angels 1195

Walks given up by pitching staff.
Yankees 380
Angels 475 (+95)

Hits given up by pitching staff.
Yankees 948
Angels 1095 (+147)

Hopefully the team is looking for some pitchers . . . . the Angels pitching staff has given up 242 more walks and hits than the Yankees and it seems a lot of those have come around to score which accounts for the 152 more runs the Angels have given up compared to how many runs the Yankees' pitching staff has given up.

Great info there, but it's not like all this wasnt known before. If the Angels ownership wasnt motivated to get pitching to help Trout for the last ten years, then I dont see how they are suddenly now going to make the effort. And if they do, the big question would be what took so effin long? I'm not mad at Trout, he had to take the money. I would do the same, but dang, if the Angels suddenly decide this offseason to go get some quality pitching, I would definitely feel a bit peeved. You waste my prime away before you get the message???

The NY Times Athletic asked 96 MLB players where they think Shohei Ohtani will play in 2024.

Of the 96, 57% said they expect him to play for the Dodgers, 11% for the Angels, 7% each for the Padres and Mets, and 6% the Yankees.

Excerpt: "An AL player we spoke to had it all gamed out: “The Mets and Padres will get in a bidding war and the Dodgers will swoop in.”

A morning email from the NY Times Athletic staff tells me that Ohtani leads the Angels in many stats, and he seems to be getting better each year.

Excerpts:

Here are the stats he leads the Angels in:
Runs
Hits
Triples
Home runs
RBI
OPS*
Batting average*
Wins
Strikeouts (as a pitcher)
WAR
*among qualified batters


He’s somehow better than before, especially at the plate. Look at the progression:
2021: .257 average, 46 HR, .965 OPS
2022: .273 average, 34 HR, .875 OPS
2023 pace: .300 average, 52 HR, 1.015 OPS

Ohtani would make a good football QB. I'll bet if he had grown up in the US prob would have been the new 2 sport player. Can you imagine. We don't see it anymore. But maybe the time spent on football would have prevented him from getting this good at both pitching and hitting.

Default Would Ohtani have been MLB + NFL?

Had Ohtani grown up in the USA where both sports are popular (unlike Japan where American football is not popular but baseball is)... would he have been the first to play both pro baseball and in the NFL as a QB?

He looks to me like a perfect build for a QB. 6'4". Can throw with accuracy as we've seen in pitching, and with distance as he's played outfield too.

He's fast.

He's smart.

To me he's like an asian Tom Brady, but more athletic than Tom.

But if he were in both MLB and NFL then he would likely not be able to be a 2-way player in MLB because there just aren't enough hours in the day to get super good at all the skills.

I used to live in Orange County. Its a great place to live. Especially if you have the kind of money he has. Going back east would be a big step down. But it depends if he really wants a title and is willing to slum it to get it.

He is a top 10 baseball player ever all time and he's only been around for a few years. Being able to pitch plus hit at his level of leading the MLB. I used to own some PSA 10 rookies of him but sold for an x2 and one for 5 times more than I bought it. I probably could have sold higher in 15 years but at that time in 2021, I figured a profit was a profit and sold them.
