Who's the greatest baseball player in the world today?

According to Bleacher Reports, it is Shohei Ohtani. Throws like Chapman and hits like Babe Ruth. Who is going to shell out the big dollars to get him?

Mike Trout........Clayton Kershaw...........that is all................

No offense, because we have seen it with Ichiro, but I need to see it against guys that throw as fast he he "supposedly" does. It is a known fact that the pitchers over there throw junk mostly; yes there are a few exceptions, but let me see how he does against a steady diet of 95+, with 86+ sliders, and defenses that, at a guess, are more advanced.

It is like saying the greatest football player in the world plays in the CFL.......who REALLY knows?

I am skeptical until I see him do it here as well. I don't doubt that the kid has talent, but the question is has he faced the talent level to push him to that level? I wish he was playing in the World Baseball League. It would have given us more insight into him. I think it would be great for Baseball if he was another Ruth or Williams.
