What if Stanton and Ohtani land in the NL West — Colorado Rockies

What if Stanton and Ohtani land in the NL West — Colorado Rockies

The Ohtani derby is great theater, and good for Ohtani. The Giants have a noticeably weak outfield.

Say it again: Babe.

The Winter meetings commence on Sunday, and something tells me that today was just the beginning.

"I want to thank the clubs and everyone else for respecting our intent to make this very important process as private as possible". The message, essentially, from player to suitor: Tell me how you envision using my considerable talents.

The only way I'll be worried about this is if the freeway series becomes the freeway World Series.

It's official, Shohei Ohtani has signed with an MLB team. However, none of the scenarios listed above involving the two biggest names of the offseason are etched in stone and it is a real possibility that Ohtani and Stanton may not be in the division next season. The one thing we know is this, he will be great as an Angel and, right now, that's really all that matters. Again, teams have to ask themselves: What has he done? It's unclear. It's what makes comparing him to other players so difficult. Los Angeles also has thought about trying a six-man starting rotation, which would allow Ohtani to have ample arm rest after pitching roughly once a week in Japan.

Ohtani was 42-15 with a 2.52 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP in five seasons as a pitcher with Nippon Ham. Ohtani probably could have received a deal worth more than $100 million if he had waited two years to move stateside, but he wasn't interested in delaying his progress for money. In 20 starts (and one relief appearance) in 2016, he threw 140 innings. Trey Muse had two saves for the Hoosiers, who will face No. 9 Stanford - which beat No. 5 Akron 2-0 in the other semifinal behind goals from Foster Langsdorf and Sam Werner.

Now, how to get him at-bats around those starts? So all that was left to do was wait and keep an eye out for any random rumor that could be evidence of a leader of the pack. That process included multiple trips to Japan that predated Ohtani being available to come to Major League Baseball. In an instant, the Angels just became the most fun team in baseball.

The sweepstakes is over! The latest speculation focuses on the, with their extensive Japanese ties in the front office, including former Dodgers scouting director Logan White, former Dodgers coordinator of Asian operations Acey Kohrogi, and former Dodgers pitchers Hideo Nomo and.

Scouts are more divided on Ohtani's ability to hit big-league pitching consistently, but the Angels intend to find out. A Hosmer/Ohtani/Myers triumvirate would be interesting but is it enough to boost San Diego into a contender role?

Plan A, of course, was Shohei Ohtani. Resurgent performances from Blake Parker and Yusmeiro Petit made the Angels' bullpen the fourth-best in baseball by Deserved Run Average. There's only a Ruthian both.
