When they reconcile over karaoke, avoid singing Monkey Magic by Godiego or Monkey Man by Toots and the Maytals.

@Speed--The Ohtani contract is the most expensive ever, but pays little in the short term. It is for 700 million, but 680 million of that is defered until a ten year period starting in 2023.

Posted in: Yamamoto pitches six scoreless innings and Pages hits a 2-run homer to lead Dodgers over Diamondbacks 8-0 See in context

@Asiaman--Betts won his MVP award 7 years ago, around the time Ohtani entered the league. Since then, Ohtani has surely compiled more WAR since he has been named MVP twice. Now Betts is on an MVP trajectory again and Yamamoto should finish top three in rookie of the year voting, similar to Senga last season. But some sports fans claim this kind of odds-laying only jinxes the team.

Confessed, or concocted a story to make the situation sound less illegal? What for you makes Mizuhara the one whose word we should believe? He spoke to ESPN, and that makes his story unimpeachable?

@Fighto!--If you have followed this drama closely, you might know that the new interpreter Will Ireton is a longtime Dodgers hand who has worked in a variety of roles since way before Ohtani joined MLB. Vetting in his case should not be an issue, since swiping more of Ohtanis millions would be the unimaginable stupidity for a Dodgers insider.

That is a glaring typo about the women.

That many unemployed would be over 100 percent of women out of work. Did the decimal in the 0.81 get dropped? Did Ippei Mizuhara do this translation for Kyodo?

@fxgai--yeah I think many know Ippei, and those who follow the two of them can see he is more than a mere contract interpreter. He usually drives their car and films practices. Ippei came to MLB from the Fighters at the same time as Shohei so they are a package deal of sorts. Pretty sweet gig from the looks of it.

Wow, an amazing new tournament record for a final round. I remember Matsuyama in his prime winning Americas most attended golf event, the Phoenix Open, in back to back years. Riviera win showing he can still compete with anyone.

Calling for an insurrection/civil war is not within presidential duties. It is plain everyday common sense. No amount of running to the dictionary helps change that.

Eh, they have not totally disbanded, just changed the name to Dead and Co. out of respect for their former frontman, found replacements for members who did not want to be involved like their bass player pictured above. Next they are doing shows at the Sphere in Las Vegas.

There is a chance that those at the front of the line are waiting to board a later express or local, not the next arriving train. Then the line will have to file awkwardly around them.

Posted in: Ohtani agrees to record $700 million 10-year contract with Dodgers See in context

@Smithinjapan--if you meant Ichikawa Ryo, the guy seems to do fine on the JGT, ranking top 10 in earnings this year and last. In 2019 he was 3rd overall with over 100 million yen in prize money plus who knows how much in marketing deals. No need to rip on him for not sticking in the PGA, which now has its own issues with players defecting to LIV.

@Yubaru--You are premature to estimate eight teams have such a low payroll for 2024. Only two were under 70 mil for 2023. The very good small market Brewers were between 110 and 120 million, for example. Why would they drop 50 mil in payroll in one year? Hold your horses until the rosters are fully signed, sheesh!

@virusrex--less innocuous means less harmless, but I infer your opinion is that him paying for space tourism is more innocuous than buying a megayacht or private plane.

Anyway, it is amazing that a dropout like Maezawa got to this point from his first business trading rare punk music CDs. Guess he found a way to profit from timely trends.

Posted in: Baseball fans leap into river as 'Curse of the Colonel' lifted See in context

Right, hard to get why you put down whatever people want to be fans of. If you followed the Kochi Fighting Dogs of the four team Shikoku Island League, that would be a cooler baseball purist move than repping the NY Yankmees just cause their hats are sold at any mall. They sell Man U and Barcelona branded balls at the malls because they are the safe and boring global brand teams.

@Wandora--the latest J-league cup was won by unheralded Fukuoka. The thrill of victory following a small club vs. the empty bragging of being a fan of a mid-table mediocrity like the 2nd best team from Manchester. Not checking the PL standings so if Man U is good these days I stand corrected.

Posted in: Japanese ace Yamamoto headed to MLB after Orix agrees to transfer See in context

Sure, those are all good points. But the name World Series is really just an old brand name for MLBs domestic league final. Simultaneously, MLB is promoting an international World Baseball Classic for national teams. Again, branding. Not much point in trying to parse the meaning of Classic or, in NFL, the Super Bowl. Just the jargon of its day: golly that was a super duper sock hop last Saturday, gosh!

Fighters new look not jesterish? One leg black, the other red. Big unneeded collars that time traveled from the 1970s. And Shinjo, bless him, hamming it up as the lil boss. Even his sports car has the same migraine-inducing paint job. Are you and I talking about the same team?
