The floodgates might have opened Saturday afternoon.
Shohei Ohtani made up his mind, though the Dodgers might have done that for him with a 10-year, $700 million contract.
His old team, the Angels, wasted no time removing the giant photo of him outside of Angel Stadium, though they long ago had an idea that they wouldn’t be re-signing the two-time American League MVP.
Now that Ohtani has decided, the teams who missed on him can begin working on their Plan Bs and the free agents who have been on hold can start making their plans for 2024.
It could happen quickly.
The Rangers might be one of the teams in on the action, even in light of a report Friday from the intrepid Ken Rosenthal.
Got a call from friend this morning asking where he can get At Long Last, the commemorative #Rangers World Series book. For those who don't have it yet, click this link: https://t.co/vAlP3EaVyR. pic.twitter.com/IivAOr1u7y
