    He's known he was going to be posted for some time, and known he was coming over here for a few years now likely. It seems like if it was me, I'd already have visited a few of the cities. I wouldn't want to make a snap decision on a few presentations, possibly not even seeing the actual city first in person.

    If he went full LeBron James and made a Decision out of this, then it would have definitely been more entertaining.

    Lol @ the clickbait title and overblown hype. If Ohtani is anything less than Yu Darvish as a pitcher and prime Adam Lind with the bat a lot of people are going to be very disappointed. Give the guy a chance to prove himself before declaring him as the most unique/revolutionary player in history.

    "Ohtani might be better than we thought" is such a bullshit article title considering fangraphs is leading the hype train on him.

    C'mon man - they say "since Babe Ruth"

    I didn't realise this guy brings the heat. We're planning our annual baseball trip (BAL, WAS, PHI this year). We're going to wait and see where Ohtani lands and give ourselves a shot at seeing him live.

    Ohtani and Trout on the same team is going to be fun. Guess I'll be staying up past my bedtime a bunch this year.

    Nice! They should be a playoff contender but I'm glad he didn't join a powerhouse team like the Cubs or Dodgers.

    Nice

    I wonder how much OF he'll play for them. They don't have an open spot. Maybe he'll just pinch hit.

    Pujols is glued to DH for a while, so not sure where he will get his AB's from.

    Regardless, the Angels have been run a lot better since Eppler took over. They have been making a lot of smart moves recently.
