MLB concludes regular season with Shohei Ohtani and Aaron Judge shots in history

Major League Baseball’s regular season ended on Wednesday, with each team playing game number 162. The league as a whole will kick off Thursday before the next season kicks off Friday with the best-of-three Wild Card streak. The match field is already setWhich means there wasn’t much at stake on the final day of the season. However, there are a few things that have gone down worth mentioning. We’re here to do just that.

Ohtani makes history

The singular shohei utani made history again. A two-way phenomenon for the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday became the first player in Major League Baseball history to qualify as a hitter and bowler in the same season.

A player is considered eligible if he scores 3.1 board appearances and one role in each team match. During a typical season of 162 games, that comes to 502 board appearances and 162 innings. Ohtani made his debut against the Oakland A’s on Wednesday in the finale of the regular season with 662 starts with Halos’ base DH and 161 starts. In other words, he only needed one stroke of accumulated work to reach this unprecedented milestone, and he did so easily thanks to the perfect opening frame.

Among Ohtani’s many accomplishments over the past two seasons, this one may be above all just thinking about the workloads involved. It is also worth emphasizing that Ohtani was excellent in both roles. Prior to the 162 game, he was boasting a 146 OPS+ on the board with 70 extra base strokes and on the hill 2.35 ERA with 213 strikes for 43 walks. In Wednesday’s game, he allowed one run in five rounds of action and went 1 for 4 with the bat.

This is a prelude to what is sure to be a powerful MVP speech in MLS. The merits of Ohtani, who won the equipment last year, are clear, but the favorite appears to be Aaron Judge of the Yankees. The judge, of course, made a record 62 home runs and threatened the Triple Crown. He also earned an OPS+ of 211 and led the majors in walking and overall bases. Consider this a case of “no wrong answers”.

The judge failed to win the Triple Crown

Yankees star Aaron Judge set a new MLS and Yankees record for one season on Tuesday evening, When he launched his 62nd home run this season. Judge was on a day off on Wednesday, however, and his chances of becoming the second AL Triple Crown winner since the 1960s were missed. The defensive player finished the regular season by going out front in the home run and sprinting, but was unable to catch up with Louis Ariz of the twins in the batting race. Instead, Judge finished his regular season with a score of 0.311, and Arreaz finished 2022 with an average of 0.316 after making a 1-for-1 (with two career runs) in the Minnesota win over the White Sox.

The season ends with four teams 100 wins and four teams 100 losses

The Los Angeles Dodgers, Houston Astros, Atlanta Braves and New York Mets already have 100 wins for next season to Wednesday, and the Yankees had a chance to make 2022 their first-ever year out of five 100-team wins. However, they fell to Rangers and finished their regular season at 99-63. On the flip side, the Cincinnati Reds lost to the Cubs after their 100th loss of the season, joining the Oakland A, Washington Nationals and Pittsburgh Pirates as a triple-digit loss in 2022. The bottom of that particular food chain reflects the fact that so many team owners are simply Not willing to invest in payroll at appropriate levels. It’s even more annoying just thinking about how many guaranteed revenue there is in MLB at the moment, which basically guarantees profitability.

Anyway, here are the updated lists of teams with the most 100 wins and 100 losses in the season:

Years with three teams or more than 100 wins

2022: 4
2021: 3
2019: 4
2018: 3
2017: 3
2003: 3
2002: 3
1998: 3
1977: 3
1942: 3

Years with three or more teams of 100 loss

2022: 4
2021: 4
2019: 4
2018: 3
2002: 4
1985: 3
1965: 3
1964: 3
1962: 3
1961: 3
1954: 3
1912: 3
1908: 3

As you can see, the 2022 and 2019 seasons are the only ones that gave us four seasons of each.

Salmon Slugs drop Homer 40 in match 119

Did everyone forget about Mike Trout when he was injured (or maybe because of all the humiliating me)? Doubtful, but he went deep with a stunning shot on the final day of the season to put an exclamation point on a season that showed just how much he can do while on the field.

That was a 490-foot blast, according to Statcast. This was the fifth tallest Homer in MLB this season, but the longest not batted at Coors Stadium (via Andrew Simon).

With 40 in his home run, Trout joins Hank Aaron (40 in 1973), Ken Griffey Jr. (40 in 1994), Matt Williams (43 in 1994), JD Martinez (45 in 2017) and Nelson Cruz (41 in 2019) as the only players to hit 40 in 120 games or less.

Trout finished the season having hit 0.281/.366/.629 with 27 doubles, 40 home runs, 80 RBI and 85 innings in 119 games. There was a point in late July/early August where it looked like he might miss the rest of the season, but he came back and played another 40 games, scoring better than he had before the injury.

Overall, Trout published his ninth season of War 6 Plus.
