So we realize you guys decided to make Ohtani 2 separate players. Many people are obviously upset about this (myself included). I understand that either choice will ruffle some feathers, so why not make a commissioner option to treat Ohtani as 1 or 2 players?
Commissioner Option 1: Treat him as 2 separate players, both take up a roster spot, etc. the way you guys said it would be this year.
Commissioner Option 2: Have him in the system as 2 players but he would act as 1 player. For example, under this option, pitcher Ohtani and hitter Ohtani only take up 1 total roster spot (maybe have the pitcher take up 1, hitter doesn't take up a roster spot), however both still move as 1 player (any trade must involved both, both go on DL at the same time, both dropped/added/drafted together).
Of course option 2 can be manually put in place by the commissioner, but this would require either Ohtani taking up 2 roster spots or the commissioner gives the team with Ohtani an extra roster and DL spot. However, this would need to be constantly monitored by the commissioner to ensure the spots are being used only for Ohtani. Also trades would make this option very complicated.
Overall, I think most agree the best Ohtani option is to keep him as 1, however this is a possible workaround that will give the users what they want (an option for 1 Ohtani) that may be easier from a coding and development standpoint.Kevin Hart supported this idea ·
