    I guess I guessed the wrong second baseman.

    It didn't help...He struck out. He's now batting a robust .224.

    At least one outlet is reporting Ohtani's season is over. It looks like he's going in for Tommy John.

    "Everything I'm hearing is that the reality is, he probably will need Tommy John surgery. ... The earliest we might see him, should he have TJ surgery, would be the 2020 season."

    MLB networks says "Not happening"

    "MLB Network insider Ken Rosenthal on Monday spoke to Angels general manager Billy Eppler, who said, "There have been no changes in [Shohei] Ohtani's diagnosis and neither our physicians nor medical staff have recommended [Tommy John surgery] or said it's likely."

    So who knows?

    I hope he’s okay but if he WAS going to have that operation, it’s better probably while he’s young and can heal quicker.

    Why? I didn't see or hear anything different than exactly what I was expecting.

    I love that his rant starts out with “you can’t toss him with no warning” and morphs so smoothly to “you gotta give us a chance to injure him.” Unspoken rules are an interesting thing.

    After Ichiro was booted to the front office he said this:

    "During the game I will be doing the same preparations I've been doing the entire time. Nothing is going to change for me that I did as a player," Suzuki said at the time. "But I can't say for certain that maybe I won't put on a beard and glasses and be like Bobby Valentine and be in the dugout."

    Guess what?

    He's so much classier than motherfucking Bobby Valentine. Valentine pulled that bullshit with eyeblack patches stuck on as a moustache and was in full douche, rule-breaking mode.

    True, but I thought it was hilarious. It's like Valentine didn't even try, which made it that much funnier.

    It was REALLY funny. And I was no fan of Valentine, he ranked high on the Asshole-O-Meter.
