WDHA’s 2-Minute Drill – Why Would Ohtani Want To Come To This Bronx Zoo
With the Major League Baseball trade deadline less than two weeks away, Angels superstar Shohei Ohtani is likely to get a LOT of interest from teams that are looking to buy.
Teams like the New York Yankees.
Fridays on the WDHA Morning Jolt, Jim Monaghan and Chris Swendeman bring you the 2-Minute Drill and this morning, the Junior Executive Producer is NOT a happy camper.
The last place New York Yankees continue to fumble their way through the 2023 season, and there aren’t a lot of things to be optimistic about.
After Gerrit Cole the starting pitching is a GIANT question mark, the bullpen has been a little shaky of late, and the offense is almost nonexistent.
Despite being in last place, the Yankees are close enough to a Wild Card spot to at least consider making a deal for Ohtani, even if it means serving up some of their best prospects.
But would Ohtani even WANT to come to New York? Even if the Angels and Yankees were to work out a deal, why would Ohtani want to sign this coming offseason as a free agent.
Unless, of course, the money is right.
Jim and Chris break it down for you.
The Best And Worst ‘Big Ten’ Mascots Ranked
With football season right around the corner, it’s time to dust off the jerseys and foam fingers and cheer for your top team.
Though to help out with the cheer you have the beloved mascots of each team. These range from a Knight to a Terrapin. Some of these mascots are cute and others are downright creepy.
The history of sports mascots started in the 1800s and nowadays it seems like there is a mascot for everything. Well, the first-ever team mascot wasn’t exactly like the large and in-charge costumed characters that we know today. It was actually just a little boy named Chic who would bring bats to players. The team called him their good luck charm.
Meanwhile one of the most well-known team mascots that spearheaded the idea of a “character” was MLB’s very own Mr. Met. You also had other characters such as Brutus Buckeye and The San Diego Chicken. We now take pride in our mascots as they have become a large part of the community with some even reaching celebrity status.
Now onto the Big Ten, we are taking a look into each team’s mascot. We’ll be ranking which ones are the least horrifying and which ones are the most creative in design.
Which Big Ten mascot is your favorite!? Let us know.
