The Yankees are gonna land Shohei Otani. That's what some say.  In fact, it's a rumor... they're all rumors.  This is what we have become. Baseball insiders trying to fall over each other to have click bait for the world to see.  I hate every minute of it.

Enter Jon Heyman who hinted about this... Larry Brown Sports reports:

"Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported Thursday that many Yankees rivals see them as the “supreme favorite” to sign 23-year-old Japanese phenom Shohei Otani. He also adds that a Monday deadline has been set to determine whether or not Otani will be posted by his Nippon Ham Fighters this winter."

Then of course you have Jon's tweet, which makes it seem like something's BREAKING... whatever that means.

I mean honestly Jon, I'm not losing sleep over whether or not the Yankees get Otani or what the players union does. The rumors are alittle over the top.

Being responsible, this is what BYB can say about this; Cashman is intrigued by the idea of having a player that can pitch and hit.  The Yankees seem interested.  But that's it right now.  Let's not get nutty.

More to come... for sure.
