The One Baseball’s Been Waiting For | ESPN Mag

Ohtani’s new teammates keep their observations light, their words like stones skipping across a flat lake. The team has erected a fortress of positivity around Ohtani, and when he warms up in Oakland before his first start, the metaphor becomes literal: A total of eight teammates and coaches stand behind the bullpen mound.

Another long think piece on Shohei Ohtani. Interesting reading, but after another 4500 words, I still know little more about Ohtani than I did before. The guy’s a total sphinx.
