Angels Ohtani Could Leave LA to Pursue World Series Championship

Los Angeles Angels superstar and likely AL MVP winner Shohei Ohtani wants to win and at the end of the day, it doesn't matter which team he's playing for when it happens. The two-way phenom recently opened up about how his desire to win is the only thing that matters to him on the baseball field. 

Ohtani recently met with the media and according to Bill Shaikin of the LA Times, had this to say on the matter:

I really like the team. I love the fans. I love the atmosphere of the team. But, more than that, I want to win. That’s the biggest thing for me. I’ll leave it at that.

The Angels are an interesting team as they always seem to have a super talented roster that continues to fall short when it matters most. Recently outfielder Mike Trout came out and said he wants the team to add in the offseason and admitted the team could use another pitcher or two. Offense has never been an issue, especially with Ohtani in the lineup, but the team needs more arms for their rotation and bullpen if they want to get over the hump. 

Ohtani is a free agent after the 2023 season and the offers headed his way could make MLB and major sports history. No pressure Angels management. If you don't sign productive players this offseason, you could potentially be losing both Ohtani and Trout. They better get off their wallets.
