Arguably the best player in baseball Shoehei Ohtani is currently not happy the Los Angeles Angels missed the playoffs with a 73-89 record.
During an interview at Tokyo's Haneda Airport upon his return home to Japan, he was less pleased the team continued a postseason drought that dates back to the 2014 campaign.
"I have to say that August and September in particular felt longer to me than last year," Ohtani said, per Koji Ueda of the Associated Press. "We were not able to play as many good games as we would like, including 14 consecutive losses. So I have a rather negative impression of this season."
Ohtani's performance this regular season was dominant to say the least. .273/.356/.519 slash line, 34 home runs, 95 RBI and 11 stolen bases as an offensive player to go with a 2.33 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 219 strikeouts in 166 innings as a pitcher.
Aaron Judge's historic season is likely why he won't win AL MVP once again.
