Fantastic episode this week guys (mostly because I’m rockin most of the guys you talked about lol) In regards to the Ohtani batting, I’m less worried about him batting with the elbow mostly because Ohtani swings two handed, he bats lefty and throws right handed, but his swing doesn’t have that one handed follow through like a Bautista, he’s more lower half / hips power, so I’m less scared cause there’s not that monstrous torque on his throwing side should he swing for the fences and miss.
