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

We knew the Yankees were out, now we know exactly who is in.

"I can't say that is 100 percent the case, but I got the indication Friday evening that our presentation was fantastic and that it might not be a ideal fit, " Yankees GM Brian Cashman said on Sunday night of a conversation he had with Ohtani's representatives. However, now it seems as though we know what he doesn't want, and that's New York City.

"Then I got the unfortunate news today that we were out of the picture. That was something that, presentation or not, might be hard to overcome". That does not mean that anybody East Coast and anybody big market is out of the picture. They spoke on condition of anonymity because not all teams had announced whether they were in or out.
