Making a broad, massive change to how users will think about pitchers and how to build their team all for Shohei Otani seems like a bit of an overreaction as of right now. Let me see a full year of him in the majors with a team that is willing to deploy him the way we all salivate over, and let me see the number of innings or homers people miss out on because they put Otani in the wrong slot, and let me see Otani hit and pitch like the Japanese Babe Ruth he is claimed to be (keeping in mind it is 2017 and not 1920) and then in the fall of 2018 we can and should revisit this conversation. Because of Otani does all of that stuff, that would definitely be something to root for.
Assuming Otani’s posting and signing with an MLB team becomes a reality, Nivshah, can you clarify how his stats will be accounted for in Ottoneu?
From the above I gather his pitching and hitting stats won’t both count on any given day. But will he be eligible at SP and UT on different days?
