Finally a profile of someone with some fresh blood who might be younger than 40.
The rookie Gumballers are owning the Eastern Division this season and Nitto’s pitching is a major factor for them. He leads the league in shutouts, is tied for Wins (though we all agree that’s a meaningless pitching stat, right?) and tops the leader board in most pitching categories. He also had a perfect game, but those are given out like candy this season thanks to the Have Fun Out Theres.
The first season is traditionally tough on rookie teams, but it looks like the Gumballers are playoff bound and with weak rosters on traditional powerhouse teams might have a shot at playing for the title.
