I'm only linking to talk about this, since it seems to happen consistently:
Expect teams like the Los Angeles Dodgers (the Dodgers were reportedly close to signing Otani in 2012), Red Sox, San Francisco Giants, Atlanta Braves, and the New York Yankees to make a strong push to sign Otani once he is posted.
It irks me to not see the Cubs here out of principle. One because they're just the obvious landing spot for Otani - the age, the SP need, their want for an international level superstar, the versatility, and just where we are in baseball history. The only team I'm even going to pretend they are competing with is the Dodgers. Two because it feels like a whole lot of people are still playing dumb on the Cubs' spending power moving forward. It is as if this isn't one of the three entertainment capitals in America, with arguably baseball's biggest individual domestic fan base and a growing one internationally, on a path to basically just be printing money by the end of the decade. The Braves, for horsefeathers's sake!
