New York Daily News Calls Shohei Ohtani 'Chicken' For Passing On Yankees

District Court for the Southern District of NY against O'Reilly and Fox News for breach of contract and defamation. O'Reilly would make other comments including to The Hollywood Reporter , which is cited in today's lawsuit.

Are we about to see the end of net neutrality?
The FCC's plan to roll back Title II Net Neutrality regulations has been the subject of dire controversy and heated debate lately. As Republicans now hold a majority of the FCC's five seats, the order to repeal the net neutrality rules is expected to pass.

In 403 games over four seasons for the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters of the Japan Pacific League, Ohtani batted.286 with 48 homers, 166 RBIs and a.859 OPS. "But I did get a sense that I can't change that we're a big market and I can't change we're in the East".

The Dodgers are expected to meet with Shohei Ohtani this week as the recruitment of the Japanese two-way star intensifies, according to people familiar with the situation. According to multiple reports, Ohtani is in Los Angeles and has scheduled meetings with team executives. Baseball rules said that any team willing to meet the posting price would get a chance to negotiate within a 21-day window through December 22. And the Cubs have only about $300,000 to offer in worldwide bonus money because they overspent their allotment past year. The Rangers have the largest signing bonus amount remaining among the teams he is considering at $3,535,000, followed by the Mariners ($1,557,500) and Angels ($1,315,000). In addition to the Giants, Ohtani is also considering the Dodgers, Padres, and Cubs from the NL.
