Dodgers $300,000
Padres $300,000


The relative dollars and absolute dollars are fairly meaningless but the fact that none of the NL teams even made an effort speak volumes imo.

UW, a 22 point underdog just knocked off Kansas by 9. 1st time EVER we have beat a #1 or #2 team on the road. Now 1-23. The M's signing Ohtani is like finding a penny in a fountain compared to that.

Meh, when I see a gm saying that he's going all out, I'd probably like to see him make an effort. So good for JD.

Exactly I don't see how the NL teams can tell Ohtani they would love to have him but don't make a single trade to try to boost their pool money.

Oh that's right. My bad. Because they spent too much or something, right?

Anyone else think the Twins just swindled the M's or the Angels somehow?

And, if I had to guess, Dipoto probably just gave Banuelos away thinking he had the advantage, meanwhile Ohtani was busy signing on the dotted line right behind Maitan with the Angels.

The Twins follow up the Dipoto trade with another million dollars to the team that actually signed Ohtani.

Coug Confusion: I don't quite understand the significance of the pool money. Aren't there a bajillion creative ways to find money for the guy? Why is a few million in pool money so important to lure a player like Ohtani who will likely be one of baseball's highest-paid players relatively soon?

It isn't relatively soon. He has the same status as Gamel or Haniger. Not even arb elibible until 2021........

So beyond the MLB minimum, the only way teams can put money in his pocket now is with the pool money?
