    What irks me the most is that Ohtani hasn't earned this promotion. The kid was awful this spring. Any other minor leaguer with those numbers, never would've received a bump. Hope things work out for Ohtani, but this move is strictly PR.

    What he said ^
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    I hope he succeeds but like others have said he needs more time to adjust to the Majors.

    Probably won't be - it doesn't seem like the big games are usually the free game of the day and if this Angels/A's game was free, what's the incentive for you to upgrade to the MLB Premium package?

    glad I have MLB.TV Premium + MILB combo so I can get any OOM game of interest or any televised MILB game and it only costs me what I would pay for about 5 games worth of local minor league team's pair of tickets.

    On MLB Network here, so I'll be watching. Ohtani needs a strong outing, so he can take a deep breath.

    free game of the day is Nationals/Reds, so you'll have to watch the game in other places (edit: like MLB Network as WCTYSON pointed out -- in most of the country with Indians/Mariners as the blackout game.)

    Ohtani looks pretty sharp early on. K'd the first batter he faced.

    Velocity has reached 100 MPH already

    1 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 0 BB, 2 K
