What it breaks down into is this: One player cannot dominate a game of baseball like they can in soccer or basketball. The greatest hitter only hits once every nine batters. The best defensive wizards can only field the balls hit to them. The highest caliber starting pitcher will (usually) only pitch once every 5 games, and usually not a full game. The best relievers usually only work 1 inning (3 outs) at a time.

No matter how good Ohtani and Trout are, they can only do so much to influence any given game.
