    Judge was nearly -1000 to walk away with the AL MVP. Not sure what "howls" you were hearing. The market spoke for itself LMAO

    The fact that you can sit there and still say Ohtani is overrated is one of the dumbest things I've ever read on this board-- which is saying a lot.

    If you argue that he was more deserving of the 2022 MVP over Judge, you are over-rating his performance in 2022. Hence the term "Overrated".

    My opinion hasn't changed on Ohtani, except maybe it's more sustainable.

    A ten plus year contract, he is eventually going to stop hitting or pitching. But after watching him more, he's definitely a natural hitter despite the upper cut. He can hit pitches anywhere in the zone and hit for average/OBP.

    BA is a dead stat and it shouldn't be for a power hitter.
