Speaking of, just for gits and shiggles, let’s assume the Angels actually do trade Ohtani.  What, realistically, would you offer for him as a one-year rental?

My personal opinion would be, nothing.  I’d wait and hope he makes it to FA at which point I think it’d be almost impossible to overpay for him, given both his ridiculous value on the field and the revenue his presence generates for the club.  But if you were going to do it, who would you be willing to give up?

Ohtani strikes me as one of the few players who might sign an extension with a team that trades for him, assuming he has a good experience and believes in the organization's commitment to winning (no jokes, please).

An outfielder, a shortstop, a starting pitcher, and a reliever.
