Shohei Ohtani won't sign with the Mets

  • The Shohei Ohtani sweepstakes is down to seven

Reports have surfaced that Otani is likely leaning toward a West Coast team in a smaller market, but with Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer's reputation as master salesmen, the Cubs are still very much a threat to land Otani, according to reports. The Mariners, Giants, Angels and Padres all finished under.500 in 2017. Interestingly enough, three out of the five teams left standing, play in the National League. Their multimedia presentation couldn't make up for the fact that NY is located on the East Coast and it appears as though Ohtani wants to play closer to home.

The Seattle Mariners are actively in the hunt for Shohei Ohtani.

"I know that our presentation was excellent", Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. The New York Mets, Oakland Athletics, Pittsburgh Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers are also among the teams told they won't sign Ohtani. The feedback from that was outstanding, but I did get a sense that I can't change that we're a big market and I can't change that we're in the East. "That was something that, presentation or not, might be hard to overcome".

Kelce accounted for 54 of those yards on two catches, the latter coming in the form of a 22-yard scoring reception from Smith. The second-year player has been up and down versus the run this season and struggled in space against the pass.

Los Angeles Dodgers: If culture is an important consideration for Ohtani, the Dodgers play in the city with the largest Japanese-American community in the mainland U.S. The Dodgers have successfully employed several Japanese pitchers in their history.

It's never quite been clear what it is that Ohtani wants, but we know that it's not money since his age, 23, limits his contract.

The bitter Yankees fan in me hopes Ohtani signs with the Padres so that he becomes absolutely irrelevant. We'd try to pick favorites, but just a couple of days ago the Yankees would have been at the top of that list, so we'll pass on that for now.
