We clearly wooed him enough he told the Padres they gotta cram in their time to yesterday to get a token pitch when his mind was already made up.

You aren't kidding.

"[San Diego] is entering a competitive window"

"They also have arguably the most savvy GM of the bunch."

Here's the list of returning Padres with 2+ wins: Clayton Richard, Jose Pirela. Their GM has been punished for lying about medical info and is digging out of a hole he dug himself with a series of terrible trades. Ohtani might pick them for the locale/market and opportunity to be 'the guy' and the past relationship, but that's still quite the reality distortion field they're putting up.

the only other team in their division that did not make the playoffs this year is ostensibly the favorite to acquire the NL MVP.

Considering that 2 weeks ago I had zero hope of the Cubs signing him, I won’t be too disappointed if he goes elsewhere. I’ll be ecstatic if they do sign him, but I still feel it is a relative long shot.

I wonder how Ohtani feels being surrounded by something that resembles Hell on earth

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

Welp, this has degenerated to D.A.V.I.D. simply posting rando things happening in the vicinity of teams. Ohtani has broken the Matrix.

When you play a game in San Diego in The Show, you can see planes landing in the background past the stadium, which is cool, I guess.

Theo should code into the game a 757 crashing in the background and horribly burned bodies flying into the park to scare Ohtani away from the clearly probable event
