Toronto reporter “might get Ohtani, might get Ryu Hyun-jin”… Berserk Toronto, are you really working?

“Possible reunion with Ryu Hyun-jin. Keep that name in mind”
“Ohtani signing push sends Toronto into frenzy”

Recently, Toronto has emerged as a strong candidate for Shohei Ohtani’s destination.
At the moment, it seems like a two-way battle between the Dodgers and Toronto. In fact, it’s not surprising that Toronto is the frontrunner for Otani.

Media reports have been similarly nuanced.
“Ohtani is believed to have visited Toronto’s spring training facility in Dunedin, Florida, on Friday,” said The Athletic.

“Manager John Schneider was scheduled to meet with reporters at the Winter Meetings on Friday, but rescheduled, and general manager Ross Atkins also met with reporters via an online video connection.”
Schneider appeared before reporters on the sixth, and after being asked four times if he had met with Ohtani the day before, he said, “I’m not going to disclose where or with whom.”
“Schneider and club officials were tight-lipped about Ohtani,” the Toronto Sun reported, “but Schneider had nothing but praise for him.”

“He has a talent that hasn’t been seen in baseball,” Schneider said.
Keegan Matheson, who covers Toronto for, the official website of Major League Baseball, also recognized Ohtani’s connection to the city in an article.
“The Toronto Blue Jays’ pursuit of Shohei Ohtani has sent the city into a frenzy.

People’s eyes are getting bigger and bigger at the thought of baseball’s brightest star coming north of the border.”

“Throughout the three days of the MLB Winter Meetings, Blue Jays officials dodged or deflected questions about Ohtani. 호텔카지노

But what’s clear is that the Blue Jays are a strong finalist with a realistic chance to pull off the biggest move in franchise history.”
That’s not all. The outlet also mentioned a possible reunion between Ryu and Toronto.
Toronto could reunite with Ryu to add depth to their rotation.
“Manager John Schneider will give Alec Manoa a chance to win the fifth starter’s job, but he needs depth in case 2024 isn’t as healthy as the past few years,” the reporter said.

The name that came up was Ryu Hyun-jin.
“The Blue Jays are in no rush and will wait for the big contracts to be taken care of first in the offseason.

Toronto is leaving the door open to reuniting with Ryu if the right situation arises.

Keep that name in mind,” he said.

Toronto is not a team that absolutely needs Hyun-Jin Ryu.

Their starting rotation is too solid.

With Chris Bassett, Jose Berrios, Kevin Gausman, and even Yusei Kikuchi performing well this year, Ryu’s place has shrunk even further.

Ryu didn’t even make the postseason roster.
On the flip side, however, they are the team that knows the most about Ryu’s current status and future value.

Adding Ryu to the mix, along with Ohtani, could make Toronto an absolute force in Asia.
So, will the Blue Jays sign both Ohtani and Ryu?
A week ago, I would have dismissed the idea as ridiculous. There’s been talk of $500 million for Ohtani alone.
However, the strong will and current mood in Toronto makes it seem not at all impossible.

In fact, the local sentiment is that it’s very likely to happen.
The mood is for the Yankees to acquire Soto in a trade. But Toronto’s got one more thing going for it.

The “East Coast” is heating up like crazy.
