When asked by McAfee, the host of the show, “How does Ohtani compare to Babe Ruth, a legendary baseball player who was both a hitter and a pitcher in the past?” He is raising his best skills on both sides,” he said. “The era of Ruth and the current major league where Ohtani is active are not opponents.”
Sabathia continued, “Otani is currently the best hitter in the major leagues with pitchers throwing 100 miles (161 km/h), as well as being one of the top 5 pitchers in the era of hitting the ball the hardest and farthest in league history.” He said, “If you look at Ohtani, it seems that he is playing in ‘Little League’ (not in the major leagues). Ohtani is the best player ever in the major leagues.”
Ohtani is performing at his best this season, as Sabisia praised. As of the 20th (Korean time), he is recording 6 wins and 2 losses with an ERA of 3.29 as a pitcher. He started in 14 games and pitched 82 innings while striking out 105 of them. Ohtani’s batting average of 0.178 is the lowest in the major leagues, which means that he is a pitcher that is difficult to hit.
Batter Ohtani’s grades are better. In 72 games, he has a batting average of .300 (83 hits in 277 at-bats) with 24 homers and 58 RBIs. His OPS combined with his on-base percentage and slugging percentage is a whopping 1.016. Within the team, he is second only in the walk category with 38, one behind Mike Trout (32), and ranks first in all major categories such as batting average, home run, RBI, most wins, ERA, and strikeouts.
Ohtani is showing a crazy mode, especially in June when the weather starts to get hotter. As for his performance this month, he has a batting average of 0.400 (26 hits in 65 at-bats) with 9 home runs and 20 RBIs. He has a whopping 1.438 OPS. It’s a sight that is hard to see even in cartoons.
Sabathia also praised Ohtani’s personality.
He said, “I have met and talked with Ohtani a couple of times so far, but I felt that he was very humble compared to his skills and reputation.” I was surprised to hear how carefully and thoroughly Ohtani understands what he needs and prepares for the match based on that.”
