  • Dear New York Yankees fans It's not Shohei Ohtani it's

"I can't say that is 100 percent the case, but I got the indication Friday evening that our presentation was fantastic and that it might not be a flawless fit, " Yankees GM Brian Cashman said on Sunday night of a conversation he had with Ohtani's representatives.

The Yankees were not the only team to learn they would not be in the running for Ohtani. Other media reports indicated that the Toronto Blue Jays, Pittsburgh Pirates, Minnesota Twins, Milwaukee Brewers and New York Mets are out of the sweepstakes.

The Cubs are among the handful of teams chosen to meet with highly coveted Japanese free agent Shohei Ohtani, according to multiple reports, despite multiple disadvantages in the bidding process for the two-way player.

In fact, outside of five teams all on the west coast of the United States, Ohtani severely narrowed down his field of potential employers.

I mean, I wouldn't put it past him, not after his representation sent out a memo to all interested clubs asking how Ohtani fits in, not only to the particular club but the city it represents.

We knew the Yankees were out, now we know exactly who is in.

"I know that our presentation was excellent", Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. "The feedback from that was outstanding. That was something that, presentation or not, might be hard to overcome". But we would see. They spoke on condition of anonymity because not all teams had announced whether they were in or out. The winning team will, however, pay Ohtani's current employer, the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters, $20 million for the right to negotiate with the standout hitter/pitcher.

He posted a 42-15 with a 2.52 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, 13 complete games and seven shutouts in 85 outings (82 starts) over the past five seasons.
