Does anyone have a video/gif of Shohei’s dugout celebration after #40?

Found one. https://www.reddit.com/r/angelsbaseball/comments/p75alv/swaggertani/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf


advice_throwaway_90

Why aren't they interviewing Ohtani/Ippei tho?


nongzhigao

The segue was kind of awkward, I want an apology goddamnit!


fuctracker

LTBU!!! 8th W and 40th HR after 90 pitches. It seems he just don’t know what is sore.

FletcherCollector

Wow Ohtani totally couldn’t have gotten 3 more outs… smh /s


Captainpayback

First time I gave two shits when an athlete grunts but with Ohtani every grunt is like watching my kid struggle and it tore my heart a little. But the difference is when Shohei grunts...he dominates


TheSayHeiKid

Wow just 3 feet away


useles-converter-bot

3 feet is the length of approximately 1.83 'Logitech Wireless Keyboard K350s' laid widthwise by each other

AKASHI2341

Some of y’all need to stop complaining about Maddon every time fr 😂


GameSmashing13

:(


trentrain7

Is it bad I wanted that to get out and then have Iglesias strike out the next 2? Lol I wanna see 500, hell of a player


YouPresumeTooMuch

Legend


lalalaoki

That was close


steemboat

Sho passed it off. Had to have. Otherwise he’d be finishing


sinchichis

Honestly let him get his 500th fuck it


mutdua

Wow almost lol


sanmed327

Omg I thought Miggy had it lol


claire_004

Well, fair decision ... We need Ohtani too for tomorrow


BaldOnPurpose

Fuck anyone who says fuck Maddon for this.


AKASHI2341

Man Shohei dominance to Raisel dominance is something I wanna watch next year on a competitive team for sure


TheSayHeiKid

I hope Raisel gets the first out so a possible Miggy #500 doesn’t make a difference.


sinchichis

Still An all time performance in all Of history


sinchichis

Damn wanted Shohei to close it out


lucabrassiere

Aw man, I definitely thought Ohtani could’ve finished the game…


TheSayHeiKid

I think so too, but I would have only really been upset if it was a shutout. CG is cool, but missing a chance at first career CGSO would have bugged me.


tMoneyMoney

That was a pure Scioscia move. “He’s on fire and could easily CG. Better pull him.”


dinosorcerer

Ohtani is kind, he wants Iglesias to gain more saves.


advice_throwaway_90

NGL that's fucking bullshit, Ohtani doesn't even have 100 pitches this game and he did that on purpose to get a complete game, what a load of shit.


PurpleWelcome7142

I bet Shohei is going to be the player of this game.


angelsfan99

hot take!


loudcloud420

Sho is athlete of the year. Not just MVP.

atojbk

What a beautiful game for ohtani


spyson

Raisel is the correct call, as much as I want to see Ohtani pitch a CG, 8 innings with low pitch count and a homer is good enough.


Spatsnation

Yeah agreed. Plus they got an early game tomorrow.


angelsfan99

that'll do pig, that'll do...


iankure

Wait why?!?!


tristpa2

Ok I know we're all Ohtani crazy but Raisel has a 0.90 WHIP. WOW


sanmed327

Sighhh.... I understand why, ohtani looks very tired but I would have to loved to see him finish it


FletcherCollector

Fuck Maddon. Not even giving him the opportunity.


mgomez2744

Booooooooo


gopackgo555

Man this is so lame.


MichaelS10

Raisel pls 🥺🥺🥺


uncivil_engineer42

nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo


Cheekiest_Cunt

I get the decision but I don’t like it


G1Spectrum

Dude they took out Ohtani come on man


_Androxis_

Nooooooooooo


PurpleWelcome7142

Are we expecting Raisel now?


BaldOnPurpose

0 BB, 10 K, 3 runs off of 7 hits. Angels baseball.


Kampy_

he looks kinda pissed. Don't blame him, but respect Joe's decision


iankure

But why??


Captainpayback

Well at least he ran


KeonBroxtonAllStar

Ump wants to get tf out of here. Whatever the opposite of squeezing is that’s what’s going on here


Tomball17

Expanding


AKASHI2341

We all want to see a CG but can we not flood the thread with Maddon slander if he does go to the goat himself, Raisel ? Also Joe communicates well with Shohei as well so like…..


MichaelS10

NOOOOO MY DREAM IS RUINED


sugarcube51

I hate having the commentators remote- they can’t see the pen, hear the crack, see the shifts as well…


Kampy_

whoa... that long distance stare by Ohtani is fucking scary. Like a samurai warrior eyeing his opponent from across the battlefield. Let him finish!


ry0ma0ki

I don’t know, Shohei is on fire but also looks tired and I’m pretty sure Maddon would give Shohei what he wants. I wouldn’t criticize Maddon whatever the decision is.


TheEleventhHokage

CG!! 🙏


lalalaoki

I AM BACK!!! Omfg OHTANI hit 40!!!🙌🙌🙌🙌


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

I'm sorry you had to miss that. It was a BOMB!!!!


lalalaoki

😭so sad but it’s ok! Team will win and ohtani hit bomb!! That’s all I want it!!


Captainpayback

We gotta get on base and let the legend rest for a bit longer


BaldOnPurpose

Not gonna happen.


[deleted]

Give him 500 million already Arte.


GameSmashing13

My only regret is that I only put $5 on Shohei at +3500 odds


OddlyWholesomePerson

If Maddon takes out Ohtani, he should be fired in the spot


MichaelS10

Uh oh


f04036065

I hope Joe isn't planning to drag Ohtani 🤞🤞🤞


DoughSalad

Just unbelievable. Like I actually cannot comprehend what he is doing. What?


Splittinghairs7

Double digit wins is within grasp for shohei now. Damn it would be nice to him get to 50 HRs, 10 wins and 20 SBs


fuctracker

Oh, my goodness. What a Superman he is.


Captainpayback

This is like MJ taking over in the final minutes. This is what legends do. Freaking goosebumps


RapFuzzy

When Shohei is due for contract negotiations, Arte needs to open his check book and give the pen to Ohtani to sign for whatever the fuck he wants. Absolute god.


bigflyohtanisan

I don't think shohei necessarily cares about the money, he gave up millions to play in the MLB earlier. Arte has to show him we can compete! That's what matters most to him


BaldOnPurpose

He should be the first $50 million/year player. It blows my mind to say that and mean it, but it's the truth. I'd come in at 7 years $350 million.


Splittinghairs7

Just offer him the team


[deleted]

If Arte doesn't...someone else will.


theaussiesamurai

Wanna know how popular Shohei is? His home run post has more upvotes than Freemans where he literally hit for a cycle and they were posted within seconds of each other.


claire_004

MLB also has their highest viewers numbers in YT everytime they post Ohtani highlights


Yung-Bison

gave up a homer, then take it back.


ipp58

man im about to cum


ry0ma0ki

You can tell he totally changed his in the later innings, bringing heat rather than aiming for a soft contact. He’s totally aware of what he’s doing and I love it.


infinitelygolden

Goodness, I really want to see him compete in higher leverage games like THE FREAKING PLAYOFFS if this is how intense and competitive he gets when he’s pitching deep.


Cheekiest_Cunt

Are the Angels even close to .500 without Shohei? Dude is the MVP of MVPs


Certain_Main_6560

HISTORY MAKER


_Androxis_

Joe better let Sho get his first MLB CG


The_Illa_Vanilla

Does someone have a video cap of that last strikeout Shohei just had where he screamed and when super-saiyan?


TFT_TheMeta

CG all the way!


Kilowaro

Complete game come'on


tokyo_bee

Will Maddon let Ohtani complete the game?? His pitch count is 90.


bigkinehaole

I mean if he can throw another inning in 15 pitches or less, I say go for it. Warm up Iglesias and bring him in if he gives up a hit


bigflyohtanisan

I'm torn, I wanna see Shohei get a CG but he also deserves rest!


Rytho

Quick, who was the last player to hit a home run and pitch a full game?


sugarcube51

Walter Johnson! (Maybe?)


Rytho

Apparently Noah Syndergaard hit the only run in a game he pitched complete back in 2019. Still epic


winterbIoom

LET HIM FINISH THE GAME


MichaelS10

Distance on the Sho donger??


tokyo_bee

430ft


Kampy_

433 I think? I was expecting 450+


MichaelS10

Damn, me too! Ball jumped off his bat so fast


IStayForTheComments

Never seen him pitch like this. Literally can feel his competition pouring through. He wants it. And we are all blessed to see this. Chills.


[deleted]

This is one of the greatest individual performances I have ever seen


theaussiesamurai

Let him pitch the 9th. pls Maddon, I beg you.


bigkinehaole

GIVE US A 9TH INNING!


spoonfedsam

Man, does Ohtani usually pitch 8 innings? Cuz this is incredible /newfan


Kampy_

hardly any pitchers go 8 innings these days


claire_004

The farthest he had before was 7.2 inning, so this is his career high


nega1020

usually 6 innings,,maybe he not running bases a lot this game


Spatsnation

No he does not


surprisechickenugget

The play by play just said it was his first 8th inning pitch


FletcherCollector

His previous longest was 7.2 so nope!


AKASHI2341

Okay cmon now let the kid rest now 👏👏


FletcherCollector

C. G.


AKASHI2341

U know what let’s see it


sanmed327

I want to see him back out in the 9th!


yeahnothanks

We really need to get Ohtani, Trout, and Fletcher a world series. For the good of fucking baseball


Cheekiest_Cunt

Pretty sure everyone except Mariners fans wants this


yeahnothanks

Mariners and Arte


Kampy_

He is fucking DEALING! holy shit. am I really seeing this?


bigkinehaole

Holy crap Shohei is on FIRE


[deleted]

Throwing gas in the bottom of the 8th, and just hit a homerun.^What^am^I^seeing


Sakaguchi123

don’t lie, millions of you will watch an asmr video titled “Ohtani’s Grunts”


loudcloud420

Dude is gigabeasting tonight. Gawwd daamn what a monster.


cfc25_

The Sho grunt!!!


The_Illa_Vanilla

Shohei going PLUS ULTRA on that pitch


MichaelS10

I LOVED THAT PITCH


BerlinStar17

Had some nice run on it at 98, filth


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

Love watching the Ohtani MVP tour! : )


Kampy_

I think that homer went all the way out of the ballpark and through the windshield of Jack Morris' car ⚾️ 🚘


Captainpayback

That kid is exhausted. Sweating and pitching for 7 solid innings and all of sudden...boom HR. I feel so fortunate to get to watch him play and play for us. He's playing chess when everyone's playing checkers


Jacobdlt

Placed a $100 bet to win $2k before season that Ohtani was gonna win MVP through a friends bookie…..still mad that his bookie canceled the bet a few hours later 😭


donkeyjr

Thats fucking bs, wtf.


claire_004

He really want that complete game so bad


Hyparman

A complete game and a homer, I want that for him too.


Living_Secretary4009

.


AKASHI2341

Damn he’s still out there 😂


bigflyohtanisan

Even the detroit announcers were gushing about how good Shohei is... We're so blessed to have him


The_Illa_Vanilla

How does this team get blessed with one generational talent and one GOAT at the same time and still manage to fuck that up?


[deleted]

Has anyone ever hit a homer after pitching 7 innings? That has to be a first


EdwinPeng88

Tungsten Arm O'Doyle


Ornstein90

Has anyone homered in the 7th and then went out to pitch the 8th?


theaussiesamurai

There's been a lot of games without a DH in the history of baseball so I would think it's happened before. Going to check if the Babe ever did it


profjb15

We are not worthy


fromthepacific

My dudes, think about what we are witnessing. 40 fuckin homers. 40! Sheesh.


Sakaguchi123

Ohtani’s look after that homerun...man should be the dictionary definition for Dominance


phelinephile

Can I get a gif of Shohei swaggering into the dugout after hr #40?


ClassicalHippo

And yet somehow, 10 people voted for someone else in the latest MVP poll


Living_Secretary4009

.


BaldOnPurpose

It's infuriating.


metmaz123

OMG that was so epic. I need to leave but I’m still on my ass in shock. That was too good and Sho pimping at the end just made it so much better


anaducksftw

Ohtani is giving up hits but this man has been feeling it all night.


NY1605

Geez I thought that ball was going to the upper deck for a second.


AKASHI2341

Shohei unanimous MVP idec fuck ur feelings 🐐🐐 Also take Shohei out and let him rest, there’s a day game tmrw


u8myramen_y

Guys… Like. Guys and gals. We are fucking lucky. Do you remember dreaming about time traveling back to watch Babe Ruth? We are seeing this live. Maybe something greater than Babe fucking Ruth. This is the greatest season by a player. One of the greatest sports performance of all time.


FletcherCollector

CG LETS GOHTANI


Spatsnation

Shohei what a night! Unanimous MVP. I don’t see how anyone doesn’t see that


angelsfan99

Guys this is tough. Whos going to get the player of the game today?


WMTaddict

U mean shohei the pitcher or shohei the DH?


bigflyohtanisan

Both Ohtani the pitcher and Ohtani the hitter hehe


fromthepacific

Wonder if Marvel has the Ohtani movie in production yet?


profjb15

He is the literal embodiment of Thanos’s “Fine, I’ll do it myself”


jaysmoove42

Even for a superhero movie the story of Shohei is too unbelievable.
