So, just so that we’re clear, Shohei Ohtani is the best player in baseball history.

Earlier this week, Ohtani, a starting pitcher, hit his 2nd home run of the season to tie the game against the Cleveland Indians against Corey Kluber, the former best pitcher in baseball before Ohtani ripped his chain off his neck.

Let’s remember, he’s only 23-years old which means he has about two decades of dominance left under his belt. Ichiro is 44-years old and he’s still making an impact Seattle Mariners. Can’t wait until 2038 when Ohtani is striking out a 64-year old Ichiro.[1. I swear I’m not just comparing them because they’re Asian. Ichiro is the oldest player in the majors.]

Yes, it’s early in the season. He’s had one quality start and a few good at-bats. But I’m a firm believer that every single game matters. Whether it’s Game 5 of the season of Game 155, swatting a homer off Corey Kluber to tie a game is a big deal.

Name 5 players right now better than Shohei Ohtani. You’re going to say Bryce Harper. Cool. Tell me how many scoreless innings he’s pitched this year. Oh, zero? Interesting. You can’t say Corey Kluber is the best because Ohtani literally dunked on him this week.

It’s Shohei Ohtani’s world and we’re all just lucky enough to live in it. All hail the GOAT. (plz sign with the Yankees plz.)
