One of them hasn't won a World Series in the 21st Century?

The questions asked in here of where the info is coming from are worthwhile (if somewhat pointless, too).

Big markets and big cities, not just "good chance of winning" places.

Do they have what Miami would want?

I am amazed that he probably left about $150MM on the table by wanting to play in  MLB before he was 25.

That at least means it is less likely he and Stanton end up in the same place any time soon.

Ohtani will set the new standard - and usher in a new era - that of the two way player.

Just too good a RF to not use him out there.

With both Pujols and Trout already in-halos and soaking up over $60MM for the next several years, I'm not sure they can afford another guy naking $30MM+ PY.

If Ohtani is as advertised Angels got a huge bargain.

We'll see.
