Shohei Ohtani’s representatives told the Yankees that they will not be among the teams invited to make an in-person presentation. Brian Cashman said the news was “disappointing.”

Best of luck, young man. We don't want anyone anyway who doesn't want to be a Yankee.

Cashman said that Ohtani’s reps told him they were very impressed with team’s presentation, but no matter how good it was, the Yankees couldn’t make themselves West Coast or a smaller market.

Seattle or the Angels, then--if he wants to bat. Still, the Dodgers could allow him to play RF, I imagine. Too bad. Maybe after this year when we get under the Tax, we'll make a play for Kershaw if he becomes a FA; at least it would make the Dodgers pay up the whazoo for him and Ohtani (coming up the following year) if he goes there.

Well, If there is any consolation, he also eliminated Boston. Oh well, you wish the kid well accept when he plays against us.

No big deal, he would have been a side show! 

Boone: You know my mama wanted me to be a farmer.

Judge: My dad wanted me to be a baseball playe

Boone: Well you're better than any player I ever had. And you're the best  damn hitter I ever saw. Suit up.

I see him landing with Dodgers or Mariners, they have a sizable Asian fan base. Lets not discount Rangers.  If geography was a primary reason for Yankees to be eliminated, so be it.  i go with what they have...which is lots of talented players and more to come from our minor leagues.

Good to know....At least our fan base would not be obssessing about him through the winter months. I'm guessing the 6 man pitching rotation is in the outs.....

Always proud to be a Yankee fan.

Texas isn't west coast, Dodgers aren't small market. Mariners or Padres where he disappears is my guess
