"...that remains under investigation."

Must be a lot of pressure on him.

-8 ( +0 / -8 )

Not surprising considering the Dodgers have a 2024 payroll that is more than double that of the Twins ($320 to $160 million).

Give the Twins three Ohtanis (worth $46 million/year in payroll) to even the sides, and then see who wins this matchup.

Good job GOAT! Not feeling the "pressure" at all. Keep that form up and Dodgers look hard to beat for the World Series!

"...that remains under investigation."

Must be a lot of pressure on him.

Not if he didn't do anything wrong. Which I don't think he did.

The stench of scandal overshadows anything Ohtani does on the field. Personally, I think he should not even be allowed in any baseball stadium until the IRS (MLB will broom the matter) clears him of any wrong doing.

Pete Rose who has been banned from baseball for life must be shaking his head at this moment as how did this guy from Japan gets to keep on playing with this huge scandal hanging over his head.

There is no way the translator got his hands on Ohtani's money without his knowledge, because Ohtani would have had one hundred percent had his hands on his own money and a huge explanation would have to be provided how the translator got his hands on Ohtani's money.

It appears you are not familiar with the US legal system, which is unfortunate.

They have this little thing called the presumption of innocence.

You do realize Pete Rose was found guilty of not just betting on sports, but betting on MLB games? Ohtani has not been found guilty of anything.

And won't.

@Fighto! One player does not make the team, every year we hear Oh the Dodgers are going to win the World Series and every year they have the biggest team pay roll and still they tank out!!! I see you had breakfast early don't miss dinner because you are calling it too early!!!

Good job GOAT! Not feeling the "pressure" at all. Keep that form up and Dodgers look hard to beat for the World Series!

I imagine there a few teams out there that would love three Otainis.

Problem is............

It appears it is you who is not familiar with our U.S. legal system (we have a little thing called the IRS that is still investigating Ohtani), which is unfortunate.
