New York Daily News Calls Shohei Ohtani 'Chicken' For Passing On Yankees

Japan's starter Shohei Otani pitches against South Korea during the first inning of their semifinal game at the Premier12 world baseball tournament at Tokyo Dome in Tokyo. A person familiar with the decision says

Several teams said Sunday they were told they had been eliminated, and the seven remaining were confirmed Monday to The Associated Press by a pair of people familiar with the choices.

Ohtani, whose fastball has been clocked at 100 miles per hour, is said to prefer the West Coast and smaller market. They spoke on condition of anonymity because not all teams had announced whether they were in or out.

"I know that our presentation was excellent", Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said.

In 403 games over four seasons for the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters of the Japan Pacific League, Ohtani batted.286 with 48 homers, 166 RBIs and a.859 OPS.

"I started getting a feel that wasn't good a few days ago". "I can't change that that we're a big market and I can't change we're in the East".

The event, held by the Terrence Higgins Trust, remembers lives lost to HIV and marks the progress made in fighting it. It's been an exceptionally busy week for the happy couple following their engagement announcement on Monday.

It's never quite been clear what it is that Ohtani wants, but we know that it's not money since his age, 23, limits his contract.

Among the teams meeting with Ohtani are the Rangers, who have the most global money to offer ($3.54 million) and the Giants, who have $1.84 million available.

The Dodgers are also still in play, according to Heyman, but it sounds like he's looking to play in a smaller market.

USA Today reported Sunday that several Major League Baseball general managers see the Mariners as "clear-cut" favorites to land Ohtani.

The next step in the process is face-to-face meetings between Ohtani and the finalists. A handful of teams, including San Diego, have been invited to make their pitches to Ohtani and his representatives beginning this week in Los Angeles. This development didn't sit well with some news outlets, including the New York Daily News, which labeled Ohtani a "chicken" for not considering signing with the Yankees.
