San Francisco Giants Reportedly Finalists for Shohei Ohtani

San Francisco Giants Reportedly Finalists for Shohei Ohtani

As reports have surfaced that big money teams like the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are out, there are others saying that the reason is because Ohtani prefers a West Coast team.

The teams under consideration are the Mariners, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Angels, the San Diego Padres, the Chicago Cubs and the Texas Rangers.

Yankees' GM Brian Cashman told ESPN.com he was disappointed by Ohtani's decision, and that there was nothing else the organization could have possibly done.

The spokesperson said that Schneiderman had not identified as fake any comments that were used as part of Pai's proposal . He set up a website for people to check and report whether their name was improperly used for commenting.

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. "That was something that, presentation or not, might be hard to overcome". The more surprising storyline is that he said no to the Yankees, who were believed to be the favorites in the sweepstakes for the two-way Japanese superstar. They spoke on condition of anonymity because not all teams had announced whether they were in or out. "But I did get a feel that we were in jeopardy when I got praise on the presentation, but it felt like I was getting prepared for something that was coming that I wasn't going to want to hear". As a pitcher, he was 42-15 with a 2.52 ERA in 85 outings (82 starts).

Ohtani was put up for bid Friday by the Pacific League's Nippon Ham Fighters for the maximum $20 million posting fee.
