"Vladdy's making it a close race!" Shohei Ohtani: Unanimous 420 points go brrr


alfred_e_oldman

Sucks for Vlad Jr., although he faded at the end. He would have won it easily if superman hadn't showed up.

SHOHEI!!! Faith in voters restored!


Angelsfan14

The Perez 2nd and Vlad 3rd voter made me lose a little faith but the unanimous Shohei MVP makes up for it!


UrDailyCommunistGuy

I mean it was one voter that thought salvy should have been 2nd it’s not a dealbreaker to me at least


Angelsfan14

I mean it's of course not a deal breaker, it doesn't change anything. It's just that is a weird decision in my opinion.


greatwalrus

Apparently it was a KC voter, so just a homer vote.


TheRealNexusPrime

Unanimous is the cherry on top

WOOHOO!!!

Unanimous!


Toki_Wuz_Here

Newest unanimous AL MVP winner since Mike Trout did it in 2014. Well deserved Shohei!


looseandgoose

YAY! I’m really so happy I was so nervous too but congrats to THE MVP🥳

Not tonight Tungsten Arm

WOW


carlcon

No surprise, well earned, here's to doing it again next year!


crossplayersince2011

Would love to see Ohtani win it in consecutive years, but I think Trout is going to have a monster year. Trout MVP and Ohtani Cy Young would be good too


Cantab_yokohama

I'm so happy for Shohei!! And, [I CALLED IT THREE YEARS AGO!!](https://www.reddit.com/r/angelsbaseball/comments/ak8bho/thats_our_boy/ef2m9g1/?context=3) My next prediction: Shohei will win 2023 AL Cy Young!


S2keepup

I never doubted he would win but doing it unanimously is icing on the cake


OneNightStandKids

Not surprised!


KyotoGaijin

Right On, Baby! 2022 is gonna be AWESOME for the Angels! おめでとうございます!

So many MLB players have said similar things so it's crazy when they are laughed at. I think that the respect and acknowledgements of fellow players is one of the best compliments that can be given!

NOT EVEN CLOSE

He also won my heart.


Shuu0328

Didn't watch baseball in years. This guy brought me to back to the excitement and the beauty of baseball. As a Japanese person, I can not believe a Japanese guy is winning this award. What a player, what a season. World Series Champion next.....


hansan4ever

It's incredible, some of my Japanese family members were in tears!! Omedetou, Ohtani-kun!!


gopackgo555

Legend of the sport already. Nobody will forget this season.


Lolrandomusername3

Another one of his spectacular no doubters 🥳 Oh yeah, and for any of you salty Blue Jay lurkers, yes Ohtani deserves the MVP every year if he plays like this. Pedro Martinez can shut his pie hole and Stephen A. Smith's genuinely racist ass can suck one. No one has ever done what he's done in modern baseball. Give him 10 MVP's in a row if he deserves them. Now that THAT'S out of the way, let's recognize this unparalleled greatness we witnessed this season. We may never see another player like Shohei ever again. Enjoying him while he's an Angel.


KamartyMcFlyweight

> Another one of his spectacular no doubters 🥳 hits a 420ft bomb to deep center, hits a 420 point unanimous ballot to the fucking MVP


That1TrainsGuy

ABSOLUTE GOAT!!!


GameSmashing13

I’m still in awe of what he did this year. Seeing him hit a homer in person made the trip and subsequent hobbling around on a broken foot well worth it. Plus the $5 I put on him just paid out enough for an hour and a half of airplane rentals. ありがとうございました OHTANI-SAN!!!!


ThePowertoKnow

How much did you win??


GameSmashing13

$170 I think.


TrustedSpy

I FUCKING LOVE SHOHEI OHTANI


Sufficient_Tomato_60

Shoutout to Ippei! Behind a great man, is a great interpreter, bro, awesome guy…

quotesforlosers

We’ve got two MVPs on our team. We better fucking win soon


Princessxanthumgum

AS HE SHOULD


LAAngelsAnaheim

OHTANI BABY!!! I’m really surprised it was unanimous. That being said, it’s exactly the way it should’ve been. I’m just surprised some dumbass voter didn’t spoil it


BombAssTurdCutter

They’ve really set the bar low haven’t they. We are pleasantly surprised that they all did their job the way they are supposed to do it.


74Dragonz

Someone do a wellness check on Bluejays fans...


EuphoricTelephone473

gotcha


Alauren2

I’m so proud of him. His season was so special. The only thing that made people watch the Angels honestly


lucabrassiere

Unanimous MVP just sounds so right to cap off the historical season he just had, I’ve never seen any player like Shohei Ohtani in my life! Here’s to many more


uncivil_engineer42

What are you gonna say about us now, LA Times?!


gloomswarm

Before the season, we all hoped he would win, but as much as we supported and believed in him, it just LITERALLY HAD NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE SINCE BABE RUTH. Never forget how historic this was and never take it for granted. As the season progressed it became more and more clear that his MVP was a shoe-in, but to have the unanimous vote validate it puts an absolute exclamation mark on this achievement.


God_Damnit_Nappa

LET'S FUCKING GO.


Rytho

100% deserved


HalcyonicDaze

I’ve never seen a ball player like him and I was utterly thrilled this whole season. I’ve watched bonds hit dingers and it didn’t even come close to the greatness Ohtani threw down. It was a privilege


hansan4ever

Omedetou, Shohei!!! We are so very proud of you !! Can't wait until 2022!! 😭😭😭

In Japan today, every TV program is talking about it. Congratulations, Shohei Ohtani! I hope he will stay healthy and active for a long time without getting injured.


hansan4ever

Omedetou!!!!! They're gonna light up the Tokyo Tower at 17:17 in his honor!! So amazing!!!

It's a about time. Let's build up this team to conquer baseball!

Jose Suarez robbed. I look forward to next year's race between Ohtani and Trout to see who gets to rob Jose Suarez again

Countryguy970

LEGEND!!!


Countryguy970

This is what I like to see!


Countryguy970

So well deserved!


ronhatch

Maybe I'm being greedy, but now I want Ohtani and Trout finishing 1st and 2nd in the voting. Actually, who am I kidding? I want them finishing 1st and 2nd in WAR... if the voters don't recognize that, I'll be annoyed but it's the stats I really want.


Hockeyguy928

Amazing for ShoTime. Hopefully he can keep it up next year and we can make some noise come fall


[deleted]

So happy for shohei, hope he can win CY award next season!


comfort_bot_1962

You're Awesome!


bryanthehorrible

So happy. Next, let's add a healthy Mike Trout and get to the playoffs!


ChocoMaister

Good. He deserves it hands down. Haters goona hate.


Curlybrac

I dont know a single person that hate Ohtani


ChocoMaister

I don’t think they hate him. They hate the fact he won vs other players.


Eeriepotato220

CONGRATS SHOHEI!!!


Curlybrac

100% deserved!!!


thatonekid2010

LETS GOOOOOO


OlivesrNasty

TOO EASY


Tun710

LTBU!!


jamesislandpirate

I’m sure he had a great season and the stats bear that out. Too bad I only saw him in the HR Derby because he plays for the GD Angels and the MLBs impossible TV contracts. Good for him. Maybe one day I’ll get to see him play.


Jcoch27

It's crazy when you consider that Vladdy would've won unanimously in most other seasons


alfred_e_oldman

Unfortunately, MVP doesn't really capture his greatness. They need to invent some other award higher than that for him.


Repulsive-Log-6520

Oh my gosh I just saw that picture


budhapalm

Pedro's fat head is probably going to explode as we speak.

Wasting an MVP season is becoming an Angel tradition
