    He seems to want to forge his own path without being compared to other Japanese players. I have to think that will hurt the Mariners chances (Ichiro), even though they've made it to the next round.

    So the Jays are theoretically still in the running. I can always hope.

    It's possible, but for how long we have recruited him (the longest I believe), the relationship we already have, some of his reported "fits", the ability we have to let him play OF, DH, and pitch, and given the demographics of the city and truly huge fan base from coast to coast. We have a better chance that "a lot" of the teams
    See the ball and let it fly, Watch the ball soaring through the sky, Higher like a comet in the night air, Defying gravity is rare, Let the ball fly, Its homerun time!!!!!

    If he doesn't sign in Toronto I'm rooting for the Angels. That rotation has needed a legit ace since prime Colon, and Trout needs help.

    Blue teams are in. Blue is an Ohtani' favourite colour.

    Did you see the like and retweet counts (for the ones that were shown)? You could probably find stuff like that for anything that happens anywhere in the world at those levels.

    I don't understand how people go on twitter, with their names right there, and spew the most stupid, hateful shit imaginable.
