Dodgers, Yankees, Mets all in hot pursuit of Japanese ace Yoshinobu Yamamoto


Today’s word of the day is ‘full court press’ as in pressure as in the clock is ticking as in defense as in aggressive as in Yoshinobu Yamamoto is the most coveted free agent on the market right now. The 25-year Japanese star has met with the Mets in Japan, and now the Yankees and Dodgers in California. The San Francisco Giants signed Jung Hoo Lee to a 6-year, $113 million deal. They were in on Ohtani. They made an offer. Not enough. Juan Soto met the media as a Yankee for the first time yesterday… via Zoom. What? The Yankees needed to do better. Soto kept deflecting to Scott Boras. Wonderful. Review: The Adults. So You Wanna Talk to Samson!? Someone asked me about international Winter Baseball. The Venezuelan League. The Dominican League. Stars are playing. MLB players are getting hurt. NPPOD. Nikola Jokic ejected for saying something to the refs.
