Yankees out of the running to land Shohei Ohtani

The Shohei Ohtani sweepstakes is down to seven

The sweepstakes entered a new stage on Sunday as Ohtani's representatives from CAA begin trimming the list of teams still in the running to sign him.

Speaking Sunday night in Stamford, Connecticut, before his annual rappel down a building for the city's Heights & Lights event, Cashman said he had learned earlier in the day that Ohtani was not interested in signing with the team, and indicated the reason is that Ohtani prefers a smaller-market team or a team on the West Coast - or both. And no manager is willing to move players around like Joe Maddon, so Ohtani could play some right field against right-handed pitchers with Jason Heyward shifting over to center.

Ohtani was posted by the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters on Friday.

Garrison Keillor: 'I put my hand on a woman's bare back'
A statement from MPR said that the firing was due to allegations of sexual misconduct against Keillor from a co-worker. KEILLOR: It's the birthday of Bronson Alcott, 1799, and also the birthday of his daughter.

"I know that our presentation was excellent", Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. "But I did get a sense that I can't change that we're a big market and I can't change we're in the East".

According to reports from several baseball writers, including Jeff Passon of Yahoo, Ohtani is narrowing down his list of possible teams and the Giants are one of them. Baseball rules said that any team willing to meet the posting price would get a chance to negotiate within a 21-day window through December 22.

The largest deal he could sign is with the Texas Rangers for $3,535,000, followed by the Yankees ($3.5 million), Minnesota ($3.07 million), Pittsburgh ($2,266,750), Seattle ($1,557,500), Miami ($1.49 million) and the Los Angeles Angels ($1,315,000).

We have also heard that Ohtani reportedly likes the pitch the Giants made of possibly playing the outfield as well as pitch.
