Outside The Confines: The emperor’s old clothes

Shohei Ohtani has a monster game after the Angels decide not to deal him. Instead, the Angels and White Sox make a big trade. And lots of trades and rumors in MLB news.

It’s Friday morning, which means it’s time for another Outside the Confines, your wrap up of all the baseball news that runs three days a week.

And if we were waiting to see what was going to happen to Shohei Ohtani before the trades started, we now know and the floodgates are opening. If I missed a deal in here, I apologize.

By the way, most of these articles linked to today still have the Cubs as sellers. Whether that’s true or not, I can’t say. I don’t even think Jed Hoyer can say right now.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster.
