Mariners, Giants among finalists for Shohei Ohtani, Yankees, Red Sox out

And FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman reported Sunday that Ohtani would prefer to go to a small-market team.

According to Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan, the Giants and Mariners are among the finalists.

Margot Robbie Is Working on a New 'Harley Quinn' Movie
Robbie's personal vision for Harley's next step is one that could fit either a solo movie or Gotham City Sirens , as it turns out. This was something that Robbie had pitched herself after considerable comic book research during Suicide Squad's production.


The Twins have been told that Japanese baseball star Shohei Ohtani will not be signing with them.

The Yankees had been considered the favorite to sign Ohtani for weeks now because they have as much worldwide bonus money available as any team ($3.5M), also because they have a great young roster loaded with talent.

Inc. Cuts Stake in CVS Health Corp (CVS)
The pharmacy operator reported $1.50 earnings per share for the quarter, topping analysts' consensus estimates of $1.49 by $0.01. Cowen set a $86.00 price target on CVS Health and gave the stock a "buy" rating in a research report on Sunday, October 29th.


Ohtani is meeting with teams he wants to meet with in Los Angeles for now, although there has been speculation he could appear in Orlando next week during the winter meetings and speak with clubs there or perhaps even be there for a signing announcement. The Rangers have been given no indication they are out of the running.

Now, while the Cubs - along with plenty of other teams - aren't mentioned in any of that, all that info would seem to be bad news for those hoping to see Ohtani on the North Side next season. The elimination of the Yankees could bode well for teams that have made a significant pitch, such as San Diego, Seattle and Pittsburgh.

Alison shouted "congratulations" as Prince Harry walked past, as host Ruth Langsford encouraged her to get his attention. The city was overrun with crowds of people , members of the press and photographers ahead of the couple's visit.


Ohtani, 23, is a two-way player who can serve as a pitcher and outfield. In 2016, he had his best offensive season when he hit.322 with 22 home runs. It looks like they'll be a World Series contender for years. Assistant GM Josh Boyd has logged numerous trips to Japan in that time to help further a relationship.
