December, 7 2017: Swing And A Miss

The Twins miss out on the Ohtani sweepstakes. They had the "small market" box checked off, though there was a bit more distance between them and Japan compared to the West Coast teams.

Though we'll likely never know, I wonder to what degree their past handling of Nishioka (as well as Park) played into the situation. They probably never were actually in the running, but I could see those past case studies causing a quick axe against an option that wasn't appealing to begin with.
