Shohei Ohtani won't sign with the Mets

"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 flawless fit, " Yankees GM Brian Cashman said on Sunday night of a conversation he had with Ohtani's representatives.

Media reports indicated that the Seattle Mariners and San Francisco Giants are among nine teams to be granted a meeting with Ohtani. I knew that our presentation was excellent. They spoke on condition of anonymity because not all teams had announced whether they were in or out.

In fact, outside of five teams all on the west coast of the United States, Ohtani severely narrowed down his field of potential employers.

"I started getting a feel that wasn't good a few days ago", Cashman said.

"Then I got the unfortunate news today that we were out of the picture".

Ohtani was put up for bid Friday by the Pacific League's Nippon Ham Fighters for the maximum $20 million posting fee.

It's never quite been clear what it is that Ohtani wants, but we know that it's not money since his age, 23, limits his contract. The decision won't come down to money, as no team can offer more than $3.5 million to sign him due to Major League Baseball restrictions.

In addition to the Giants, Ohtani is also considering the Dodgers, Padres, and Cubs from the NL. A handful of teams, including San Diego, have been invited to make their pitches to Ohtani and his representatives beginning this week in Los Angeles. The Mariners have reportedly told several of their players to come to LA in order to meet with Ohtani.
